PARLIAMENT Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak does not receive income from any companies, said Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Azalina Othman Said.

"The prime minister does not receive any additional income from companies and does not receive any benefits in the form of corporate credit cards," she said in a written parliamentary reply yesterday.

Azalina was replying to a question from Ko Chung Sen (DAP-Kampar) on whether Najib is receiving any corporate income or credit cards, and whether this had been declared to the Inland Revenue Board.

Najib has been accused of receiving funds from 1MDB and its former subsidiary SRC International into in his personal accounts.

Sarawak Report had previously claimed that SRC had paid for two credit cards used by Najib.

The MACC on Jan 20 this year declined to comment on the allegations.

A flow chart shown by attorney-general Mohamed Apandi Ali at a press conference, however, shows that a total of RM3.2 million was spent on two credit cards linked to one of the Ambank accounts, allegedly belonging to Najib, that received the funds from SRC.

Najib has denied using public funds for personal gain, and dismissed such claims as a plot to topple him.

Apandi has also cleared the prime minister of any wrongdoing in the RM42 million SRC and RM2.6 billion donation scandals.
