KUALA LUMPUR: A former Malaysian ambassador to Saudi Arabia told the High Court that he was informed by Datuk Seri Najib Razak about the purpose of the kingdom’s donation to Malaysia and not by the palace.

Datuk Prof Syed Omar Al-Saggaf, 76, said he was told by the former prime minister that the donation would be used for election purposes after the latter had a private meeting with the Saudi king in 2010.
