Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak has refuted Sarawak Report‘s allegation that he paid RM90 million to PAS.
“I didn’t give money to PAS, that’s why PAS has sued Sarawak Report. We will wait for the decision (of the suit), now (Sarawak Report editor) Clare (Rewcastle-Brown) is gelabah (uneasy).
“We didn’t give RM90 million to PAS but I can’t comment (on this further) as the case is still in court. This is all rubbish but they included it to besmirch us,” Najib said.
The prime minister said this in his closing speech at Umno’s national social media convention at the Putra World Trade Centre today.
Rewcastle-Brown in an article had suggested that PAS received RM90 million from Najib.
PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang has since filed a defamation suit against her in the United Kingdom.
