Former premier Datuk Seri Najib Razak performed ‘sumpah laknat’ at Kampung Baru Mosque last night to deny that he misappropriated RM42 million of SRC International Sdn Bhd funds.

According to Najib, he did not know that the sum that was deposited into his personal account came from the subsidiary of 1Malaysia Development Berhad’s (1MDB) company.

Najib further added that it was never his intention to create SRC to channel the funds to himself or his family or neither has he ever instructed any of the company’s directors or officials to siphon money into his personal account. 

“I have never held a cabinet meeting to gain approval for an RM4 billion loan from KWAP (Retirement Fund Incorporated) with the intention of obtaining ill-gotten gains amounting to the said RM42mil.”

“If I am deceitful, then may I be condemned upon this oath and therefore I will accept God’s wrath.”

“If these all are merely lies planned by my political rivals, then dear God, I ask upon you to punish them as well as those who are complicit and colluding with them,” Najib was quoted by The Vibes.

The oath was taken to clear his name and his family from their alleged involvement in the SRC case, Najib said.

Around 500 people including his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, son Mohd Norashman Najib as well as UMNO Secretary-General Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan witnessed Najib’s oath-taking ceremony last night which was held after the Isya’ prayer.

The Pekan MP also hope that justice would prevail in his appeal on the SRC case.

Najib’s final plea on his SRC case will continue tomorrow at the Federal Court.

He had been found guilty of one count of abuse of power, three counts of money laundering and three counts of criminal breach of trust linked to the SRC scandal by the Kuala Lumpur High Court in July 2020.

Following the verdict, he was imposed with 12 years of jail time and a fine of RM210 million.

His conviction and sentence were subsequently upheld by the Court of Appeal on 8 December last year.
