KUALA LUMPUR (April 30) - Datuk Seri Najib Razak's SRC International Sdn Bhd trial continues for the 11th day today with AmBank Raja Chulan branch manager R Uma Devi continuing being cross-examined by lawyers representing the former premier.

Najib's lawyers are expected to finish cross examining her and there will be a re-examination by the prosecution by Deputy Public Prosecutor Datuk Suhaimi Ibrahim.

Uma Devi in her testimony yesterday based on bank documents acknowledged that large amounts of money entered the former premier's two accounts said to be US$681 million in 2011 as suggested by lawyer Harvinderjit Singh who said it came from Prince Faisal Al Turki.

The witness acknowledged about US$620 million was withdrawn from the account as Harvinderjit suggested it had been remitted back to the Arab prince.

She also agreed the balance from the two accounts that were closed in Aug 30, 2013 were deposited in three of Najib's accounts in AmBank which were opened a month earlier.

 

A new witness is expected to be on the witness stand should Uma Devi finish in her testimony and The Edge is bringing the proceedings live.
