Civil forfeiture notice – responding to Najib's 'puzzled' friend

Modified 9 May 2019, 12:02 pm

In a Facebook posting last night, Najib Abdul Razak posted a question from a friend regarding the government's civil forfeiture notice against him, his wife Rosmah Mansor, their three children and 13 other individuals and companies.

The former prime minister described the question as puzzling and was at a loss as to how to respond.

"A friend asked me this question but I don't know how to answer it.

"(The question reads) 'You were charged in court for receiving RM2.6 billion from 1MDB, you were charged for returning RM2.6 billion in 1MDB money. But Pakatan Harapan wants to forfeit your family's and your belongings, which Harapan claimed were bought with the RM2.6 billion from 1MDB, which was returned. How does this work?'”

Malaysiakini seeks to help Najib's friend and others to better understand the issue...
