Another fascinating aspect of this investigation is the revealing of the pivotal role of Jho Low’s known close side-kick Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil in the close circle of operators around Najib Razak.
A letter from Nik to the branch manager of AmIslamic Bank in Jalan Raja Chulan, KL dated 20th January 2014 reveals his management of several of the bank accounts owned by Najib, including two involved in the SRC investigation.
Nik Kamil refers to three accounts, 211202201188-0/ 211202201189-8/211202201190-6, for which he reveals he has been appointed “Authorised Personnel” with the right to deposit cash.
Because he and the account holder (Najib Razak) have schedules involving “various international trips and meetings scheduled and other potential ad hoc requirements”, he explains to the branch manager that there will be occasions where he “may not be available to provide necessary transfer and remittance instructions to the Bank”.
He therefore wished to nominate a representative to “arrange for urgent cash deposits into the accounts where required for purposes of, inter-alia, clearances of urgent cheques against my instruction”.
This revelation shows that Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil is not only the Director of the 1MDB subsidiary SRC, but also the manager of private accounts owned by Najib Razak, which have received money from that company.
This new information, related to the on-going scandal of 1MDB and already being reported internationally, is likely to send shock waves through Malaysia’s banking and political circles.
Whatever the excuses (an of course there will be attempts at plenty) such vast transfers of money into a sitting Prime Minister’s private account cannot be ignored.
Neither can the unorthodox and irregular handling of public borrowings from an old age pension fund entrusted once again to the same Prime Minister cum Finance Minister, who allowed money from SRC to also pass into his personal accounts.

To add insult to injury Nik Faisal Arif Kamil, CEO of SRC, has fled to Indonesia. He is well protected by Malaysian authorities. He can leave and return to Malaysia whenever he wants. The authorities close one eye and shut the other despite Nik Faisal being a “person of interest” to Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission/SPRM and no one will notice unless someone recognize him. He is still CEO of SRC International and is free to manage SRC.
With the Power of Attorney he holds over a number of Najib Razak’s private bank accounts, he is also free to manage Najib’s bank account to ensure that this “Cash is King” prime minister is suitably financially lubricated by the billions still in SRC International coffers courtesy of the RM4 billion it borrowed from KWAP (the rakyat pension fund) and guaranteed by the government of Malaysia!
Thieves and robbers abounds in Bolehland. The arrogance of power and the tyranny of those hell bent on the acquisition of insane wealth will damm this nation of ours into an orgy and abyss of ever more greedy and more arrogant Umno leaders for whom “CASH is CERTAINLY KING!”. God help us all.
