RM9.5m paid by Najib used to purchase Shafee's Bukit Tunku bungalow, say witnesses

“In his meeting with Najib, Shafee also informed the then prime minister that he needed RM9.5 million to purchase the Bukit Tunku home. Shafee told me that Najib had asked him (Shafee) to take the RM9.5 million first via two cheques of RM4.3 million and RM5.2 million. The RM9.5 million, Shafee said, was as a loan until Najib comes up with a rationalisation [for the payment],” said one of the witnesses.
