NAJIB Razak could not have known whether the money credited into his accounts came from illegal sources, said his lead counsel, adding that it is up to prosecutors to prove the matter.
Speaking to reporters after proceedings at the Kuala Lumpur High Court were adjourned today, Muhammad Shafee Abdullah said it is for the prosecution to prove that the former prime minister was complicit in any wrongdoing.
“He (Najib) may not have had the full picture of all the transactions involving his bank accounts. There can be many transactions.
“The issue is, did Najib know the exact thing, what went on? Did he know whether the money that (made its way) into his accounts came from an illegal source?
“The prosecution needs to show that he was complicit. That he was part of the conspiracy. That is a job for the prosecution, not us.”
