Keputusan Panel Penilaian Operasi (PPO) Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) supaya 2 kertas siasatan membabitkan SRC International Sdn Bhd diserahkan semula kepada peguam negara adalah kerana terdapat bukti kukuh untuk mendakwa Datuk Seri Najib Razak, kata seorang ahli panel.

Beliau yang enggan mendedahkan identitinya berkata, PPO berpengaruh kerana ahlinya diberikan taklimat dan boleh menyemak semula kertas siasatan yang diklasifikasikan “tertangguh” dan “tiada tindakan susulan”.

“Penyiasat SPRM mengumpul ‘bukti mencukupi’ untuk membuktikan kes prima facie terhadap Najib,” kata ahli panel itu kepada The Malaysian Insider.

“Kami membuat kesimpulan itu kerana penyiasat SPRM juga memberikan taklimat kepada kami mengenai kes itu. Mereka juga menjawab segala soalan yang kami ajukan.”

Panel yang dipengerusikan bekas setiausaha kerajaan negeri Sarawak Tan Sri Dr Hamid Bugo itu, menamatkan penggal mereka semalam selepas tidak menerima surat lantikan semula sebaik tempoh setahun mereka tamat.

Dalam mesyuarat terakhir PPO semalam, ia turut diberi taklimat mengenai perkembangan terkini siasatan membabitkan SRC International Sdn Bhd dan derma politik RM2.6 bilion yang dimasukkan ke dalam akaun peribadi Najib.

Selain memuji sikap profesional, dedikasi dan integriti SPRM, panel berkenaan turut meminta kertas siasatan diserahkan kembali kepada peguam negara dan mendapatkan bantuannya mengeluarkan bantuan perundangan bersama bagi membolehkan SPRM mendapatkan bukti dan dokumen daripada institusi kewangan yang berpangkalan di luar negara.

Peguam jenayah, M Visvanathan berkata, ‘credible evidence’ (bukti yang boleh dipercayai) bermakna pendakwaan mempunyai semua bukti cukup dalam kes mereka untuk tertuduh membela diri.

“Ia bermakna, tiada hujah yang boleh dipatahkan ketika di peringkat pembelaan, pendakwaan boleh mendapatkan sabitan terhadap tertuduh,” katanya.

Peguam Negara Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali, yang juga pendakwa raya pada 26 Januari berkata tidak terdapat bukti mencukupi untuk mendakwa Najib berhubung isu SRC International, syarikat milik Kementerian Kewangan.

Syarikat itu dilaporkan sebagai salah satu firma dari mana derma itu berasal sebelum disalurkan melalui syarikat lain dan dimasukkan ke akaun peribadi Najib.

Apandi berkata, tiada bukti Najib selaku menteri kewangan menyalahgunakan kuasanya berhubung pinjaman diambil SRC International daripada dana pencen, KWAP.

Beliau juga menjelaskan tiada keperluan meneruskan dengan permintaan mendapatkan bantuan perundangan bersama daripada pihak berkuasa kewangan luar negara dan bank untuk SPRM menyelesaikan siasatan terhadap kes RM2.6 bilion kerana tiada bukti mencukupi.

The Malaysian Insider masih menunggu respons Apandi sama ada beliau akan mempertimbangkan keputusannya menutup siasatan terhadap Najib susulan kenyataan SPRM semalam.

SPRM sebelum ini merakamkan percakapan lebih 100 saksi, termasuk Najib berhubung isu derma tersebut.

Agensi itu membuka siasatan itu susulan laporan The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) dan Sarawak Report pada Julai tahun lalu, yang mendakwa daripada jumlah RM2.6 bilion itu, RM42 juta daripada SRC International, bekas anak syarikat 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

Pindahan besar berjumlah AS$681 juta juga dipindahkan ke akaun Najib, daripada Syarikat British Virgin Islands dan melalui Falcon Private Bank di Singapura.

Apandi berkata, Najib mengembalikan AS$620 juta kepada penderma Arab Saudi kerana ia tidak digunakan. – 25 Februari, 2016.

Enough proof to charge Najib over SRC, says MACC oversight committee

The Operations Review Panel has advised the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commisision (MACC) to re-submit two investigation papers on SRC International Sdn Bhd to the attorney-general (A-G), saying there is credible evidence to frame charges against Datuk Seri Najib Razak, a panel member said.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the member said the panel was influential as members could review investigation papers classified as “delayed” and “no further action”.

“The MACC investigators had collected sufficient evidence to prove a prima facie case against Najib,” the panel member told The Malaysian Insider.

“We came to the conclusion as MACC investigators had also briefed us on the case. They had also answered all our queries.”

The panel, chaired by former Sarawak state secretary Tan Sri Dr Hamid Bugo, ended its tenure yesterday as the members did not receive extension letters after their one-year term ended.

At its final meeting yesterday, the panel was briefed on the latest developments in the probe into SRC International and the RM2.6 billion political donation in Najib’s personal bank accounts.

The panel commended MACC for its professionalism, dedication and integrity, and told the investigators to re-submit investigation papers to the A-G and seek his assistance to issue a mutual legal assistance to enable MACC to obtain evidence and documents from financial institutions abroad.

Criminal lawyer M. Visvanathan said credible evidence meant that the prosecution had all the ingredients to prove their case in order for an accused person to enter defence.

“It means, that unrebutted at the defence stage, the prosecution can obtain a conviction against the accused,” he said.

A-G Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali, who is also the public prosecutor, had on January 26 said there was insufficient evidence to charge Najib over SRC International, a Finance Ministry-owned firm.

The company was reportedly the firm from which part of the donation had originated before it flowed through other companies and ended up in Najib’s personal bank accounts.

Apandi also said there was no evidence that Najib, also the finance minister, abused his power in relation to a loan taken by SRC International from pensions fund, KWAP.

He had also explained that there was no need to proceed with a request for mutual legal assistance from overseas financial authorities and banks for MACC to complete its probe into the RM2.6 billion, since there was insufficient evidence.

The Malaysian Insider is awaiting a response from Apandi whether he will reconsider his decision to close investigations against Najib, following the statement from MACC yesterday.

MACC had recorded statements from more than 100 witnesses, including Najib, over the donation.

The agency opened investigations following reports in The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) and Sarawak Report in July last year, alleging that of the RM2.6 billion donation, RM42 million had originated from SRC International, a subsidiary of Najib’s brainchild, 1Malaysia Development Berhad.

A larger tranche of US$681 million was also transferred into Najib’s accounts, originating from a British Virgin Islands company and going through Falcon Private Bank in Singapore.

Apandi said US$620 million was returned by Najib to the Saudi donor as it was not utilised. – February 25, 2016.
