An investigating officer from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) told the Kuala Lumpur High Court on Wednesday (Dec 14) that her investigation revealed that Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak himself gave the cheque of RM1mil to Tan Sri Shahrir Ab Samad in 2013.

MACC assistant superintendent Nurzahidah Yacop said the former prime minister was also the one who wrote and signed his AmIslamic Bank cheque before giving it to Shahrir when they were at the Prime Minister’s Office in Putrajaya on Nov 27, 2013.

She said this when reading her witness statement at the trial of the former Johor Baru MP who was charged with failing to declare RM1mil which he received from Najib to the Inland Revenue Board (IRB).
