KUALA LUMPUR, July 8 2018 : Wanita Umo today handed over RM261,286 and two bracelets it collected to former prime minister and party president Datuk Seri Najib Razak to help him post bail tomorrow in the court case against him.
The money and bracelets were collected from Wanita Umno members throughout the country, said its chief Datuk Dr Noraini Ahmad in a statement today.
“I am very proud and touched by the sacrifices made by Wanita Umno members to help Datuk Seri Najib,” she said.
Last Wednesday, Najib pleaded not guilty at the High Court here to three charges of criminal breach of trust and one count of abuse of power in connection to funds amounting to RM42 million belonging to SRC International Sdn Bhd.
He was freed after two of his children paid part of the RM1-million set by the court. It also allowed payment to be done in instalments, paid on the prosecution day and tomorrow. – Bernama
