Najib’s 1MDB trial: Ex-CEO concludes 270-page testimony

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 1 (Bernama) — Former 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) chief executive officer Datuk Shahrol Azral Ibrahim Halmi today concluded his testimony as a key witness in the 1MDB trial of former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

It took him six days to finish reading out his 270-page witness statement as the prosecution’s ninth witness from Sept 23.

The witness who is also former CEO of the now defunct Terengganu Investment Authority Berhad (TIA), was also subjected to additional questions from senior deputy public prosecutor Datuk Seri Gopal Sri Ram during the examination-in-chief.

Shahrol Azral, 49, will be cross-examined by Najib’s lawyer Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah on Monday.

Najib, 66, faces four counts of using his position to obtain RM2.3 billion from 1MDB and 21 counts of money laundering involving the same funds.

The Pekan MP allegedly committed the four offences at AmIslamic Bank Berhad, Jalan Raja Chulan branch, Bukit Ceylon here between Feb 24, 2011 and Dec 19, 2014, and the 21 charges, at the same place between March 22, 2013 and Aug 30, 2013.
