PUTRAJAYA: The Federal Court here was told on Friday (Aug 19) that Datuk Seri Najib Razak had never made any enquiries with AmBank over the huge funds that were constantly credited and debited in his personal bank accounts until the accounts were closed in 2015.
Ad hoc prosecutor Datuk V. Sithambaram submitted that the former premier did not take any legal action against the bank for the alleged wrongful credits and debits of funds from his accounts.
"The evidence of two bankers from AmBank, namely, Uma Devi Raghavan and Joanna Yu Ging Ping showed that Najib had never made any enquiries with AmBank, let alone lodged any complaint, regarding the huge amounts of funds constantly entering and leaving his accounts.
"In fact, the appellant (Najib) had no problem with his bank balances until he closed his accounts in March 2015," he said at the hearing of Najib’s appeal against his conviction and sentence for misappropriation of RM42 million in SRC International Sdn Bhd funds.
