Najib's SRC trial: Ihsan Perdana received RM50mil from Gandingan Mentari


KUALA LUMPUR: A bank processing officer told the High Court here that a total of RM50mil was credited into the bank account of Ihsan Perdana Sdn Bhd, the corporate social responsibility (CSR) unit of SRC International Sdn Bhd.

Rosaiah Mohamed Rosli of Affin Bank testified that the bank received data through single credit confirmation advice on Dec 24, 2015, to credit the account of its client, Ihsan Perdana, with RM40mil from the AmIslamic Bank account belonging to Gandingan Mentari Sdn Bhd.

Gandingan Mentari is a subsidiary of SRC International.

"The amount was credited on the same day (Dec 24, 2015)," she said here on Wednesday (April 24).

The witness said on Feb 5, 2015, the bank again received a similar single credit confirmation advice to credit Ihsan Perdana's account with RM5mil from Gandingan Mentari's AmIslamic Bank account.

The amount was credited into the account on the same day.

The next day, Rosaiah said the bank received another single credit confirmation advice to credit Ihsan Perdana's account with RM5mil from Gandingan Mentari's AmIslamic Bank account.

The amount was credited into the account on the same day as well.

Rosaiah is the 20th witness in the corruption trial of Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

Najib faces seven charges involving RM42mil belonging to SRC International Sdn Bhd.

On July 4 last year, Najib claimed trial to a charge of abuse of power and three counts of criminal breach of trust (CBT) linked to the 1MDB scandal.

He allegedly misappropriated RM42mil in funds belonging to SRC International.

On Aug 8, 2018, he appeared in court again for the second time and was charged with three counts of money laundering involving the same RM42mil.

The trial is ongoing before Justice Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali today.
