KUALA LUMPUR — Aug. 8, 2019: Former Finance Minister II Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah personally met with former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak more than 20 times to voice his concern over the country’s administration, including on the RM4 billion loan by SRC International Sdn. Bhd. from the Retirement Fund Incorporated (KWAP).
Husni replied to Najib’s lawyer Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah that he would do so if he found something was wrong and that it involved Najib.
“If something was wrong, it should be fixed,” he said, adding that the Cabinet meetings which he attended rarely discussed matters to approve a request for a government guarantee for the SRC loan.
“When I was the minister of finance II, discussions in the Cabinet were rare. Mostly they (Cabinet members) just agreed with what was tabled. One person tabled and the rest agreed. That’s the reality in the Cabinet, except matters pertaining to 1MDB,” Husni claimed.
He aso did not object to SRC’s second application for a government guarantee for a KWAP loan in 2012 because he knew there was nothing he could do. Husni was not in the country when the second application by SRC was tabled and approved by the Cabinet.
Najib is facing several charges relating to RM42 million of SRC International money. — Bernama
