RM27m transferred into PM's account from firm set up less than a month

The company which channelled RM27 million to Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s AmBank account was incorporated just one month before making the hefty transaction.

The flow chart describing the money trail from SRC International to the account indicated that Permai Binaraya Sdn Bhd made the transfer to the account AmPrivate 1MY (880) on July 8, 2014.

The chart was shown at a press conference where attorney-general Mohamed Apandi Ali cleared Najib of wrongdoing on Tuesday.

This is barely a month after Permai Binaraya was incorporated, based on Malaysiakini’s checks with the Companies Commission of Malaysia (CCM).

According to CCM records, Permai Binaraya was incorporated on June 6, 2014, and has a paid-up capital of RM400,000.

Permai Binaraya’s directors include Mohd Shukri Dahlan, who retired as Selangor police chief in 2014, CCM records show.

Also a director is Rosman Abdullah, the managing director of public-listed property development firm Putrajaya Perdana Bhd, which is the parent company of Permai Binaraya.

Putrajaya Perdana was earlier acquired by Utama Banking Group (UBG) Bhd – a firm in which business tycoon Jho Low took over in 2010 allegedly with 1MBD cash, but this was denied by 1MDB.

The construction outfit plays an important role in the Najib-SRC International case because three of its subsidiaries were allegedly involved in funnelling money to the AmBank accounts.

The other two are Putra Perdana Development Sdn Bhd and Putra Perdana Construction Sdn Bhd.

Malaysiakini has contacted Putrajaya Perdana and is awaiting its response.
