Jho Low relayed messages purportedly from Najib to AmInvestment Bank
KUALA LUMPUR: The High Court heard today (Mon, July 22) that fugitive businessman Low Taek Jho had on occasions relayed messages, purportedly from Datuk Seri Najib Razak, to the relationship manager at AmInvestment Bank Bhd, who was handling the former prime minister's accounts.
Reading from a transcript of her messages with Low, Yu said Low claimed Najib wanted to charge US$100,000 on his credit cards, but the charge did not go through.
She added that after checking with the bank's credit card department, she assured Low that the charge would go through.
Prior to this, Attorney General Tommy Thomas had in his opening speech alleged that Najib spent half a million ringgit of the total laundered money he received from SRC International to splurge on Chanel products at a US boutique four years ago.
The court also heard that Najib's cards were declined while he was in holiday in Europe in August 2014, for an amount of €570,000 in multiple transactions.
"(I told him that one was) not supposed to issue cheques if there were insufficient funds.
In her written statement earlier, Yu also said that between 2011 and 2015, Najib's current accounts at the bank had a high volume of transactions including inward fund transfers from overseas in foreign currencies.
On July 4 last year, Najib claimed trial to a charge of abuse of power and three counts of criminal breach of trust linked to the 1MDB scandal.Read more: The Star
