PUTRAJAYA: The Attorney-General’s Chambers has found that no criminal offence was committed by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in relation to SRC International and the alleged RM2.6bil donation.

Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali said at a press conference Tuesday that he found no evidence to show that the donation was "an inducement or reward for doing or forbearing to do anything in relation to his capacity as Prime Minister".

"Based on the evidence from witnesses and supporting documents submitted, I am satisfied that no criminal offence has been committed in the relation to the said donation," said Apandi.

He said the donation, which was actually RM2.08bil, was a personal donation from the Saudi royal family and given without any consideration.

On the two investigation papers on SRC International, Apandi said there were no evidences to prove that Najib had any knowledge nor had he given any approval for the transfer of the monies from the account of SRC International into his personal accounts.

"Based on the facts and evidences as a whole, I as the Public Prosecutor am satisfied that no criminal offence has been committed by the Prime Minister in relation to the three investigation papers.

"I will return the relevant investigation papers to MACC today at noon with instructions to close the three papers," he said.
