What’s known, unknown in money trail to Najib’s accounts

A special task force comprising the Attorney-General's Chambers, police, anti-corruption authorities and Bank Negara is now probing the claim made by The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) on July 2. WSJ has posted documents on the money flow into Najib's accounts on the Internet to support its report. WSJ's report centres on some US$700 million (RM2.67 billion) funnelled into two of Najib's accounts at AmBank in Kuala Lumpur. The money was transferred in five separate deposits from two originating points. According to WSJ, the largest portion of the money – US$681 million – was transferred to Najib's accounts in March 2013, ahead of the May general election (GE13). Najib has denied taking funds for personal gain.
