Ex-banker says he thought Najib knew about 1MDB transactions

A FORMER banker told the Kuala Lumpur High Court today he had the impression that the transactions in accounts belonging to Ministry of Finance (MOF) Inc companies were undertaken with former prime minister Najib Razak’s knowledge. 

Kevin Micheal Swampillai, 59, who worked with BSI Singapore from 2010 to 2016, said this was because the bank’s clients, such as 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) and its subsidiary SRC International Sdn Bhd were companies owned by the MOF when Najib was finance minister.
