When contacted on Friday (Sept 28), counsel Muhammad Farhan Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee confirmed that Najib, 64, has paid the remainder of the bail.
"He paid the RM3.5mil bail and it was settled the day before yesterday (Wednesday)," said Muhammad Farhan.
On Sept 20, Najib was granted the RM3.5mil bail with two sureties by Sessions Court judge Azura Alwi, after he pleaded not guilty to 25 graft and money laundering charges involving RM2.3bil.
On Sept 21, he paid RM1mil out of the RM3.5mil bail imposed on him at the Kuala Lumpur Court Complex bail counter.
His lead counsel Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah had requested for bail to be paid in staggered payments, with RM1mil to be paid on Sept 21 and another RM500,000 this week.
Judge Azura allowed the bail payments be made over a period, as long as it was settled by Friday (Sept 28).
Najib pleaded not guilty to four graft charges. He also claimed trial to 21 charges under the Anti-Money Laundering Act and Anti-Terrorism Financing Act 2001 (Amlafta).
The offences were allegedly committed at the AmIslamic Bank Berhad branch on Jalan Raja Chulan here while in his position as a civil servant when he was prime minister, finance minister and chairman of the 1MDB advisory board.
