Saudi king's visit vindicates PM on RM2.6b donation, says academic
Saudi Arabian King Salman Abdul Aziz Al Saud's visit to Malaysia has put to rest the opposition's slander regarding the RM2.6 billion donation for Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.
"Previously, there was a leader who said that even a mad Arab would not give such a colossal sum. But the presence of King Salman is sufficient to prove Najib was telling the truth that the RM2.6 billion was a donation from the Saudi royal family.
"I am certain the donation was given based on Najib's efforts and achievements in upholding Islam in Malaysia and globally," academic Hanafiah Harun told Umno Online.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
