Prime Minister and Umno president Najib Abdul Razak has refused to disclose the identity of the donor who gave RM40 million to Umno Sabah.
Speaking after chairing the BN supreme council meeting, he also declined to specify what it was for, curtly saying that it was “for political donation”.
Pressed on whether it was for election funding, he said: “It’s for political donation.”
“Every politician has the right to do so,” he said.
“We are not at liberty to disclose (the donor’s identity) because the opposition also receives donations and they don’t disclose (it either),” he said.
