A former special officer of Datuk Seri Najib Razak claimed he and a colleague did not question why foreign bank accounts were opened in their names on Low Taek Jho’s orders as they did not want to lose their positions, the High Court heard today.

Testifying against his former employer in the latter’s main 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) corruption trial, Datuk Amhari Efendi Nazaruddin claimed Najib’s private secretary at the time, the late Datuk Azlin Alias, told him that doing so could put their careers and family at risk.
