Investigation Reveals SRC Judge Nazlan Received Over RM1 mil
(Berita Malaysia Online) – Malaysian police have allegedly found over RM1 million in SRC Trial Judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali’s bank account.
Leaked police investigation papers revealed that the money was allegedly transferred into Nazlan’s Maybank private account number XXXXXXXX0433 in 11 transactions.
Malaysia Today blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin, popularly known as RPK, has exposed this in a video posting (see below) on YouTube on Thursday, April 21, 2022.
Reading out the alleged leaked investigation papers in his video, RPK revealed that the police investigation found that the money was transferred in a sum of about RM100,000 cash in each of the 11 transactions.
“The total was slightly over RM1 million,” alleged RPK in his explosive video.
“The authorities have traced the accounts and transactions involved in the transfer of the money.”
He was commenting on a police report lodged against Malaysia Today over an article titled: ‘Judge Mohd Nazlan Being Investigated For Unexplained RM1 Million In His Bank Account’, published on Thursday, April 21, 2022.
“Just open the file on the investigation carried out a few months ago… save time.
“Tomorrow (today) police can announce the conclusion or findings of investigation,”
“Investigation was done a few months ago.
“Police don’t need to probe into today’s report (against Malaysia Today).
“No need to do anything. All they have to do is open the file,” disclosed RPK, calling on the police not to waste waste time to launch an investigation and, to call in this and that person to assist their probe.
“My contribution to the police investigation is… just open your file.
“The investigation already done.
“The investigation report is already complete.
“It’s in your file already,”

Conflict Of Interest
In his article: ‘Judge Mohd Nazlan Being Investigated For Unexplained RM1 Million In His Bank Account’ , RPK alleged that Nazlan received some RM1,036,127.40 in cash in his Maybank account as part of the RM2 million he was to receive from Malaysian fugitive Jho Low for some “services rendered”.
He questioned on what were the “services rendered” by Nazlan to Jho Low, who was linked heavily to 1MDB financial scandal.
“Does this not pose a serious conflict of interest?
“The timing of the `services rendered’ fee makes it impossible to deny any conflict of interest.
“The date coincides with the date of 1MDB’s RM6.17 billion loan and the decision 1MDB made on the acquisition of Tanjong Energy Holdings Sdn Bhd.
“This money came in during the time Nazlan was the group general counsel and company secretary of Maybank. And it is suspected that it is tied to the decision Maybank made to create SRC International,” said RPK.
RPK revealed that the police investigation papers found Nazlan to have been involved in all decision-makings pertaining to establishing SRC International Sdn Bhd, in Maybank’s approval of RM6.17 billion loan to 1Malaysia Development Board (1MDB) and 1MDB’s decision made on the acquisition of Tanjung Energy Holdings Sdn Bhd.
RPK said those people who were involved in the financial scandal have all been revealed in the 1MDB trial in USA, adding that those names, including Nazlan, were all present in the Maybank meetings.
“He (Nazlan) can be a witness in this allegation. His name was not only mentioned as present and involved in the decision-makings but also a recipient of over RM1 million cash in his personal account via 11 transactions,” revealed RPK.
Tanjong Energy Holdings then was owned by billionaire T. Ananda Krishnan, a close confidant of former Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Mahathir Mohamad.
Judge Nazlan presided over SRC graft trial and convicted former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak with abuse of power, criminal breach of trust and money laundering involving SRC International at the High Court in 2020.
His decision to convict Najib and sentencing him to 12 years’ jail with a RM210 million fine was upheld by the Court of Appeal on December 8, 2021.
In February this year, Nazlan, 55, was elevated to as a Court of Appeal judge.
In his High Court verdict on July 28, 2020, Nazlan said Najib created SRC as a mean to steal 1MDB’s money.
But 1MDB’s minutes of meeting revealed that the proposal to form SRC came from Maybank and not from Najib, as Nazlan stated in his written judgement as a reason why he found Najib guilty.
Nazlan’s flawed reasoning raises a crucial question of flawed trial or mistrial.
Nazlan’s conflict of interest has surely tainted and marred the SRC trial.
If he was a man of integrity and dignity, Judge Nazlan should have recused himself from hearing the SRC trial.
But he did not, hence, based on emerging evidence, a mistrial.
Nazlan should be detained and charged for corruption, isn’t it so?
Justice delayed is virtually justice denied.
The darma of the rule of law is that tens of criminals can escape the law but the law shall never ever punish an innocent person.
Najib’s fate hangs on this darma.
RPK’s explosive revelation indicates that Malaysian law enforcers had been on a prolonged “deafening silent mode” over this graft scandal.
The darma awaits
