IGP: Najadi murder not linked to 1MDB money trail

PETALING JAYA: There is no connection between the murder of AmBank founder Hussain Ahmad Najadi and alleged transfer of 1Malaysia Development Bhd funds to a bank account of the Prime Minister, said Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar.

The Inspector-General of Police said such claims were false and bordered on malice.

"I can confirm that Hussain did not make any police report before he was shot dead," he told reporters after launching Ops Selamat here on Wednesday.

A WhatsApp message which went viral had linked Hussain's murder to a US$60mil deposit at an AmBank account.

The message claimed that Hussain filed a police report on the matter on July 28, 2013.

"I repeat there is no connection between the 1MDB probe and Hussain's murder," said Khalid.

"Hussain's case has been solved with the killer already detained. End of story," he said.

In its latest posting, Sarawak Report interviewed Hussain's son, Pascal, who is now in Moscow, and he claimed that his father died for reporting about alleged bank corruption.

A tow truck driver was sentenced to death last year by a High Court for murdering Hussain in 2013.
