The Attorney-General, however, declined to provide the identity of the donor.
“We know his name. He is not the late Saudi king but the son of the king. He is still alive,” he said in an interview with Sin Chew Daily.
Mohamed Apandi added that Malaysia Anti-Corruption Commission officers had recorded a statement from the donor and that he had read the report.
“Why are the people asking for the reason of the donation? This question has to be asked to the donor. He has billions. He wanted to give money to whoever, so what?
“This is his money. This is his personal matter. Our country does not have any laws to state that receiving political donations is illegal,” he said.
