Umno and partners won tens of millions of dollars, according to the High Court.

The High Court here heard today that Umno and its politicians earned corrupt money traceable to 1MDB, which can be proved based on the money trail to Najib Razak’s bank accounts.

Deputy public prosecutor Liew Horng Bin said tens of millions of ringgit were paid out to Umno and its associates through cheques or direct debits from Najib’s personal accounts, indicating that things were not going well.

“Umno and Umno politicians received tainted money traceable to 1MDB and they are the main beneficiaries of fraud perpetrated on 1MDB,” he said.

He based this on Najib’s Ambank accounts 9694 and 1880, as well as AmIslamic accounts 1906 and 1898, he said.
