Najib Abdul Razak was today asked to explain his spending at luxury stores in Hawaii and Sardinia, Italy, using funds which investigators claim originated from state-owned SRC International Bhd but which the former premier insists are donations.

Najib said the US$130,625 (RM543,530) charged to his credit card at Chanel in Honolulu, which was later paid off using funds in his bank accounts, were intended for his wife Rosmah Mansor.
