LAWYER Muhammad Shafee Abdullah has been arrested and will be charged today in a Kuala Lumpur court, with offences related to a RM9.5 million payment he received from former prime minister Najib Razak.

Sources said Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officers picked up the prominent lawyer yesterday.

Shafee is the lead defence counsel for Najib in several money laundering cases. It is understood the former PM has also been called up over Shafee’s case.

Shafee’s arrest follows PKR president-elect Anwar Ibrahim’s announcement last week that the Attorney-General’s Chambers had issued an affidavit affirming Shafee had received payments amounting to RM9.5 million from Najib in 2013 and 2014.

In response to Anwar’s announcement, Shafee revealed that he did receive RM9.5 million from Najib, but the money was payment for legal work he had done for Umno over 10 years, and not for leading the prosecution in Sodomy II. – THE MALAYSIAN INSIGHT
