KUALA LUMPUR: Former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has denied that a sum of RM114mil seized from his condominium in 2018 was his.
Instead, the former Pekan MP said that the money belonged to Umno and was entrusted to him for use during the 14th General Election.
“I verily state that the RM114mil that was reported to be returned to me does not form part of my assets because at all material times, the RM114mil was held by me on trust on behalf of Umno following GE14 that had just concluded days before the raid in my apartment.
“As the (then) president of Umno, I was entrusted with the said funds for purposes of the election, however, the said money does not belong to me. Therefore, any non-disclosure as alleged is vehemently denied,” he said.
Najib stated this in his affidavit-in-reply to an additional affidavit filed by 1Malaysia Development
