PM says ex-AG told him about plan to charge Najib

PM says ex-AG told him about plan to charge Najib

Former attorney-general Abdul Gani Patail disclosed how he was preparing to charge Najib Abdul Razak during a meeting with Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad yesterday.

“I wanted to know what happened when he (Gani) was removed and what was the result of his investigation.

“He (Gani) claimed he was preparing to charge Najib and that morning he was deprived of his position,” he told reporters at the Perdana Leadership Foundation in Putrajaya this afternoon.

Gani was heading the special task force investigating the RM2.6 billion in the former prime minister’s bank account and the SRC International case.

He was replaced with Mohamed Apandi Ali midway during the probe on health reasons, igniting speculation of a cover-up.

During this period, a charge sheet against Najib also made the rounds but the previous administration dismissed this as fake.

Others on the task force were former inspector-general of police Khalid Abu Bakar, former Bank Negara governor Zeti Akthar Aziz, former MACC chief commissioner Abu Kassim Mohamed.

Since winning the 14th general election, Mahathir has trained his guns on Gani’s successor, who cleared Najib of any wrongdoing.

He accused Apandi of concealing evidence related to 1MDB.

Apandi, who has since been instructed to go on unrecorded leave, has denied the allegation.

Najib had described the RM2.6 billion as a donation from a Saudi royalty but international investigations suggested that it might have originated from 1MDB.

The former premier also denied abusing public funds for personal gain.

Yesterday, Mahathir said Najib could be charged soon and dismissed the possibility of striking a deal with his former protege.
