Najib Src Trial Another Pakatan S Lie Exposed
To a question by the defence, she agreed that “the minute by Datuk Seri Najib (to EPU) was not an instruction but for EPU to look into the matter and come up with recommendations.”
(nthqibord.com) – Another day of hearing at the Kuala Lumpur High Court today, Thursday, another Pakatan Harapan’s long-standing lie on former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak exposed.
A PH-manufactured myth that Najib had abused his premiership power and misused his position to manipulate 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) for his selfish gains was torn apart in shreds by the testimony of the trial’s 28th witness Datuk Dr Kamariah Noruddin.
The former Economic Planning Unit (EPU) deputy director-general (macro) of the Prime Minister’s Department told the court that Najib agreed with EPU’s recommendation to provide a mere RM20 million grant to 1MDB to set up a strategic resources company namely SRC International Sdn Bhd.
The grant of RM20 million was by far peanuts compared with the RM3 billion the government-link company (GLC) CEO Datuk Shahrol Azral Ibrahim Halmi had requested from the government.
Kamariah, who was the director of EPU’s Energy Section in 2010, indicated that Najib raised no objection to EPU’s recommendation, neither did he overrule the unit’s decision.
Najib received an official application dated August 24, 2010 from 1MDB to set up a special purpose vehicle (SPV) to explore the alternate energy resource sector, namely coal, petroleum and uranium.
The state wealth fund has applied for a RM3 billion grant to set up the SPV, namely SRC International.
1MDB has submitted the application to Najib in his capacity as the Prime Minister and Finance Minister.
Najib, instead of using (or misusing) his vast executive powers, referred the application to
Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop, who was then Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department in charge of the EPU, for a decision.
EPU then replied to Najib in a memo dated October 12, 2010 with several recommendations on 1MDB’s proposal.
Although it agreed with the setting up of SRC International as it was in line with the National Energy Policy and the 10th Malaysia Plan (MP10), EPU rejected 1MDB’s request for RM3 billion grant.
EPU recommendation was to give only RM20 million to 1MDB, which was duly agreed by Najib .
