Which Millions?

The Wall Street Journal has today asserted quite categorically that investigators believe that US$681 million was transferred via intermediaries to British Virgin Islands based company, Tanore Finance Corp. and from here into Prime Minister Najib Razak’s bank accounts. The Prime Minister has in turn threatened to sue and is insisting that the US$681 million,  was a political donation from a member of the Saudi royal family. The Malaysian Attorney General has confirmed this and further asserted that US$620 million was returned unused after the 2013 general elections. This is  corroborated by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation which has published a letter from a Saudi prince pledging that a sum of US$375 million, and referring to previous pledges as well. Further the  Bernama news agency has reported Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir as saying the funds wired into the Malaysian Prime Minister’s personal bank account were a “genuine” donation originating from Saudi Arabia. So which millions are which?
