KUALA LUMPUR: Convicted former Petrosaudi International employee Xavier Andre Justo has confirmed meeting with Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad yesterday, as posted on his Facebook account.

When contacted via Facebook messenger, Justo said the picture of him and Dr Mahathir was taken at the Prime Minister's private residence at Seri Kembangan.

“The meeting took place at 5pm yesterday, The meeting went on for one and a half hour,” he said.

He, however, refused to disclose the details of the meeting.

“The meeting was intense and wonderful.

“You can imagine what it was about but I will not give the details for the moment...” he said.

Justo, a Swiss national, was sentenced to three years’ jail on Aug 17 after he pleaded guilty to blackmailing his former employer, PetroSaudi International.

On June 22, 2015, Justo was arrested at his home on Koh Samui island after PetroSaudi officials filed a complaint that Justo attempted to blackmail the firm for 2.5 million Swiss francs (RM10.9million) with documents stolen from the company.

However, in Dec 2016, Justo was among thousands of foreign prisoners who was granted a royal pardon by Thailand’s king, King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradeva-rangkun.
