Rafizi names former PAS No. 2 as recipient of SRC funds

PETALING JAYA: PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli has named former PAS deputy president Datuk Dr Nasharudin Mat Isa as the individual who allegedly received funds from SRC International Sdn Bhd, a former 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) subsidiary.

Nasharudin is now chief executive officer of the Global Movement of Moderates.

In a 41-minute Facebook live video published Thursday, Rafizi, also Pandan MP, named Dr Nasharudin as the recipient of an undisclosed amount of funds from 1MDB, allegedly channeled through the account of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Rafizi read a statutory declaration (SD) naming Dr Nasharuddin as having received the funds through an intermediary.

He claimed to have received this information through an unnamed former senior Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officer who was leading the 1MDB investigations and has since retired.

Rafizi claimed that MACC investigations on SRC International found that funds were moved to a private account of Najib, some of which was subsequently paid to a certain lawyer.

"MACC has questioned the lawyer and found proof that leaders were paid using funds from SRC international channeled through the lawyer.

"One of the recipients that received payment from the lawyer is Dr Nasharuddin Md Isa, former PAS deputy president," said Rafizi.

Dr Nasharudin was Yan MP from 1999 to 2004 and Bachok MP from 2008 to 2013. He was PAS deputy president from 2005 to 2011.

He was also a key proponent of a unity government plan with Umno, an idea which was eventually dropped.

He was dropped from the PAS Syura Council in 2013 for allegedly breaching several council decisions.

Rafizi said he would be "more than happy" to go through the legal process should action be taken over his SD, as he would then be "in a position to drag the 1MDB issue to the court all over again".

Previously, Rafizi alleged that an individual close to the PAS leadership had received 1MDB funds, but did not disclose the name of the individual.

On Tuesday, PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Awang rubbished the claim, saying Rafizi's accusation was a "300% lie". Hadi said he forgave Rafizi and urged him to repent.
