TTF: Tan Sri Zeti Akhtar Aziz knew the identities of companies and individuals who channeled RM2.6 billion into Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak’s account. She knew that the money was a gift from the Government of Saudi Arabia and not the proceeds of money laundering. It was she who advised Najib to park the money in his personal bank account and told the Managing Director of Ambank Jalan Raja Chulan to green-flag the transaction.
The above is contained in an investigation paper prepared in 2015 by the current head of the MACC, Dato’ Seri Shukri Abdull. Yet, it is Najib who seems to be bearing all the brunt of slander while Zeti is painted as an eminent person (see news item below). Not even the MACC seems bothered to investigate this lady despite her involvement in the RM2.6 billion affair.
Day by day, it is getting clearer and clearer that the former Bank Negara Governor is in cahoots with both Shukri and Dr Mahathir Mohamad to throw Najib under the bus.
KUALA LUMPUR: Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) today confirmed Tan Sri Zeti Akhtar Aziz’s appointment as its new Group chairman effective July 1.
She will be replacing Tan Sri Abdul Wahid Omar, who will be retiring as the Group chairman of PNB and Trustee of Yayasan Pelaburan Bumiputera with effect from June 30, 2018.
The Board of PNB also announced that Datuk Awang Adek Hussin will be retiring as director of PNB and chairman of PNB Research Institute Sdn Bhd effective June 30, 2018.
“We also announce that Tan Sri Zeti will be appointed as the Group Chairman of PNB with effect from July 1, 2018.
“Tan Sri Zeti is presently one of the members of the Council of Eminent Persons, entrusted to advise the government on matters pertaining to economic and financial matters,” PNB said in a statement.
In the statement, PNB also announced the appointment of Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as the chairman of Yayasan Pelaburan Bumiputera (YPB).
The other trustees of YPB are Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Amin Ali, Zeti and former Auditor-General Tan Sri Ambrin Buang.
PNB holds around RM180 billion in equity investments in Bursa Malaysia which translates to around 10 per cent of the market capitalisation of Bursa Malaysia.
Among its investee companies are Maybank, Sime Darby and UMW Holdings.
