RM2.6 billion for Najib personally, not under OSA, says Dr Mahathir

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has once again drawn attention to the RM2.6 billion donation received by Datuk Seri Najib Razak and questioned whether the funds were related to the prime minister's duties. Writing in his blog, the former prime minister said there were procedures and rules for receiving and handling funds for administration, which Najib had not abided by. "Is it in his terms of reference to acquire secret funds and keep it in his personal accounts? No prime minister of Malaysia has ever done this. "In fact, he admits that the money is a gift to him personally, not to the government. "He did not inform the government authorities about the money. It is in fact a secret from the government. He seems not to have paid taxes on this money," he said in his latest posting. Dr Mahathir said it clearly showed that the possession and management of the RM2.6 billion was not part of the prime minister's duties and therefore did not qualify as a government secret that could be protected by the Official Secrets Act 1972. – March 7, 2016.
