Sarawak Report editor Clare Rewcastle-Brown has claimed that murdered MACC-linked deputy public prosecutor Kevin Morais sent her a draft of an alleged charge sheet, which the authorities later claimed was fake, against Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak on the 1MDB scandal.

She made the claim in her defence statement in relation to a defamation suit filed against her in the UK by PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang.

According to her, she received the document a day after former attorney-general Abdul Gani Patail vacated his position on July 27, 2015.

"The defendant (Rewcastle-Brown) had received the draft indictments and information relating to the planned prosecution of Najib and the consequent dismissal of (Gani), the day after that dismissal, from a public prosecutor, Kevin Morais," read the defence statement sighted by Malaysiakini.
