Former attorney-general Abdul Gani Patail had disclosed his plan to charge Najib Abdul Razak during a meeting with Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
Mahathir had revealed this in Putrajaya during a press conference this afternoon.
Yesterday, Abdul Gani was among a long list of people who met Mahathir at the Perdana Leadership Foundation building.
Abdul Gani was heading the special task force investigating the RM2.6 billion in the former prime minister's bank account and the SRC International case.
He was replaced with Mohamed Apandi Ali midway during the probe on health reasons, igniting speculation of a cover-up.
During this period, a charge sheet against Najib also made the rounds but the previous administration dismissed this as fake.
