Chan Kok Leong

In a recording released by the MACC today, former prime minister Najib Razak urges the UAE crown prince to help his stepson Riza Aziz with a loan agreement so it will not look like the latter was laundering money. – The Malaysian Insight pic by Nazir Sufari, January 8, 2020.

THE following conversation between HRH Crown Prince of the United Arab Emirates Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Najib Razak shows the former Malaysian prime minister seeking help to arrange a loan for his step-son Riza Aziz to disguise acts of money laundering.

This conversation follows the filing by US Department of Justice (DOJ) on July 20, 2016, seeking to seize dozens of properties worth US$3.5 billion (RM14.35 billion) tied to 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB).
