KUALA LUMPUR: The High Court here today set June 1 to hear an application by Prime Minister Najib Razak to be an intervenor in an originating summon filed by former Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Zaid Ibrahim against AmBank Islamic Berhad

The ex-parte originating summon was filed by Zaid to compel AmBank Islamic Berhad to disclose details pertaining to a RM2.6 billion fund believed to have been deposited into five accounts allegedly belonging to Najib.

Lawyer Nor Hazira Abu Haiyan, representing Najib, said this to reporters when met after the case came up for case management in chambers before Senior Assistant Registrar Engku Nurul Ain Engku Muda.

In the originating summons, filed last Oct 21, Zaid, among others, is seeking a court order to allow him, or his lawyer, to obtain copies of the bank statements of the five accounts allegedly belonging to Najib.
