Joanna Yu and mystery witness scheduled to testify this week

(July 22): Former AmBank Bhd relationship liaison manager Joanna Yu and a mystery witness are scheduled to testify at the trial of Datuk Seri Najib Razak on Monday, a prospect anticipated by many given that the former managed and oversaw Najib’s bank accounts as well as those of SRC International Sdn Bhd.

The mystery witness is speculated to be Tun Dr Ling Liong Sik, Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Datuk Mohd Hafarizam Harun (a lawyer who represented Najib) or Ling’s previous attorneys, Ranjit Singh and Yeoh Cho Keong.
