This was first mentioned by the Director of Strategic Communications BN, Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan and greeted personally by the Prime Minister, Dato ‘Seri Najib Tun Razak,” said PKR secretary-general Rafizi Ramli.
“In the speech in Seremban, Dato ‘Seri Najib announced his readiness to declare the source of Umno and financial contributors to the fund last Umno challenging opposition parties to join the cause of our financial state. The operations of Justice daily are including paying staff salaries at headquarters, hire Justice country offices and headquarters expenses covered by payroll deductions by representatives Justice,” he said.

MPs and assemblymen from other states accounted for 10% of their salaries to Justice. Meanwhile, the other expenses of Justice was also held in the fund-raising from time to time especially before the elections,” he said.

The statements that had made by Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan and Azalina Othman was giving the impression that the so-called funds of RM2.6 billion is an international philanthropic contributions to Dato ‘Seri Najib Tun Razak which is not the fund of 1MDB. Dato ‘Seri Najib Tun Razak through his spokesman as Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan within few weeks stories as following:
- RM2.6 billion of funds that are donations from rich people of the Middle East in person to Dato ‘Seri Najib Tun Razak. Donations are used by Dato ‘Seri Najib Tun Razak to finance the election campaigns of Umno and Barisan Nasional in the 13GE ago.
- There is documentary evidence that the so-called funds of RM2.6 billion was the donation to Dato ‘Seri Najib Tun Razak.
- Because the document, then transfer RM2.6 billion was characterized by corruption and not just political contributions as RM40 million cases were included in the personal accounts Dato ‘Seri Musa Aman, Chief Minister of Sabah.
- Based on this, an investigation into the 1MDB and RM2.6 billion in funds in the personal account of the Prime Minister will conclude that there is no corruption element and the case was just only closed.
Rafizi Ramli said that the issues relating to the financing taken in recent years the political parties is to prepare people with the scripts that were provided in respect of the investigation 1MDB and funds in the personal account 1MDB found no elements of corruption and the case was just closed.
