This, she said, was revealed in a note taxed from a representative from Thales International Asia (which brokered the deal on behalf of arms manufacturer DCNS — the parent company of DCNI — with Perimekar and the Malaysian government) Francois Dupont entitled “Malaysia/Submarine Project” to his bosses.
In the note, Dupont had indicated that a meeting with Najib on July 14, 2001 would take place with the “condition” but it was not known if the meeting had actually occurred.
Perimekar is owned by Abdul Razak Baginda, a close associate of Najib, who was acquitted in abetting the murder of Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu. The murder case was alleged to be linked to the submarines deal.
