FORMER 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) chief executive officer (CEO) Shahrol Azral Ibrahim Halmi told the Kuala Lumpur High Court today that the deal between the state investor and Abu Dhabi’s International Petroleum Investment Co in 2012 was a sham. 

The deal, which involved the purchase of energy assets for 1MDB, was raised today by defence lawyers in Najib Razak’s 1MDB trial involving RM2.3 billion for which he faces four counts of abuse of power to enrich himself and 21 sounds of money-laundering.
