NAJIB Razak’s former special officer became visibly emotional when testifying at the 1MDB trial today, saying that he was afraid of being used to cover up criminal activities linked to the scandal-ridden entity.
Amhari Effendi Nazaruddin said he was ordered by Najib to travel to China in June 2016 to negotiate for a bailout for 1MDB.
He said he was aided by Low Taek Jhow, who communicated by phone and email.
“Although I respected and followed Datuk Seri Najib, this was the hardest moment for me,” Amhari, his voice cracking, told the Kuala Lumpur High Court.
