Lester: 90pct of 1MDB docs fabricated

Published:  |  Modified:

In the latest installment of his video confession, Lester Melanyi has claimed that former PetroSaudi International executive Xavier Andre Justo had only provided Sarawak Repor t with 10 percent of the documents in his possession.

"Another 90 percent are all created by Malaysian people, the opposition people. He did not tamper it.

"The web designer in London is very good in doing it. If you ask him to create money, he can create money for you and it may look genuine," he added in the video, which was made available to The Star .

In the six-minute clip, Lester claimed the designer fabricated documents for Sarawak Report 's mission to incriminate Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.

The former Sarawak Tribune editor said he met Justo ( photo ) who is currently being investigated by Thai police over blackmail allegations.

Lester said he met the Swiss national in London "two or three times" in 2012 and 2013.

He too believes that the former PetroSaudi executive did not tamper with the documents he had allegedly stolen from his former employer.

Describing Justo as a "pleasant guy", Lester said he does not believe Justo was a criminal nor did Sarawak Report editor-in-chief Clare Rewcastle Brown pay him to leak the information to her.

He claimed that Justo and Rewcastle were introduced by a Bruno Manser Fund (BMF) director to purportedly "create stories" and make them look "juicy".

"He flew from Switzerland to London to see whether what Clare can do with these things kind of stories about Malaysia to attack Najib (sic)," he added.

Previously, Rewcastle had denied Lester worked for her and the allegation that 1MDB documents were fabricated.

The Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has since blocked access to Sarawak Report .
