Nazri Aziz disputes Najib, Apandi accounting of donation: Only US$ 25 Million, not US$ 61 Million,of US$ 681 Million of “Saudi donation” was spent on election

by Ganesh Sahathevan

 

Datuk Nazri Aziz said in an interview:

“Crediting money into personal account is good. Why? Because he (Najib) will know how much he spent,” he said, adding that Najib had spent RM99 million from the donated sum for the previous national polls, with the overall expenditure coming to RM600 million, which was spent for conducting pre-election activities right up to polling day.

However , Attorney General Mohd Apandi has said that of the US$ 681 Million “donation”, Najib returned US $620m.Taken together with statements made by Najib, the implication conveyed by Najib and Apandi was that some US$ 61 Million was spent on the election.

Now however we have Nazri clearly stating that only US$ 25 Million (US$1= RM 4) of the “donation” was spent on the election.In fact he implies that the “donation” was meant to finance the election,, was taken out of a certain fund, and spending of that amount had to be accounted for.

KUALA LUMPUR, May 22 — Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz said two of the biggest beneficiaries of the controversial RM2.6 billion donation received by the prime minister were then-Umno party stalwarts Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal.

In a special no-holds-barred question and answer session here last night, the Tourism Minister criticised his former Umno colleagues for later turning their backs on Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

“I admit I received. I am the Padang Rengas Umno division head. Datuk Najib told my Umno division… each branch receives RM5,000 each to repair homes. I got it. I’m not lying. I got about RM1 million. I still got it. I admit I got.

“This one, Mahyudin also got. Shafie also got. The money for Shafie’s division was even more. 400 over branches…he even got more than me.

“Mahyudin also received more than me. Mahyudin got, I think his branches were more than 100,” he said, referring to Muhyiddin with the name Mahyudin.

“However, at that time, Shafie and Muhyiddin never question Datuk Najib… eh Datuk Najib, where you got the money from? Both of them were quiet,” he added.

Nazri said that Najib also did not violate any laws by having the money banked into his personal account.

“Crediting money into personal account is good. Why? Because he (Najib) will know how much he spent,” he said, adding that Najib had spent RM99 million from the donated sum for the previous national polls, with the overall expenditure coming to RM600 million, which was spent for conducting pre-election activities right up to polling day.

In a sudden Cabinet reshuffle last year, then Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi replaced Muhyiddin as deputy prime minister, while Shafie, also an Umno vice-president, was dropped as rural and regional development minister.

Muhyiddin and Shafie later quit Umno and formed offshoots Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia and Parti Warisan Sabah respectively.
