4.40pm – Wong Nai Chee, the 17th witness, says that he received an AmIslamic cheque for RM238,914 from Najib on Feb 12, 2015. The cheque was for community leader Lim Soon Peng to pay two other entities.
Wong, who served as Najib’s political secretary from 2011 until May last year, tells DPP Saifuddin that the cheque was used to pay AD Network and Akademi Kewartawanan & Informasi Taima.
“Payment was for administrative fees for the Ah Jib Gor Facebook profile (by AD Network), and for the publication of Chinese Weekly, the name of the publication,” Wong says.
He says that Lim is a trusted man, and that the objective of Chinese Weekly was to inform Chinese readers.
Saifuddin: You say that the payment is for AD Network and Akademi Kewartawanan & Informasi Taima. Have they complained of lack of independence?
Wong: No, they have not.
