At a news conference on 3rd July 2008,
Najib said that their meeting was the first between them and it took place at his (Najib's) residence several days before Mohd Saiful, who he said appeared to be highly traumatised, had made a police report on the sodomy allegation on Anwar.
"I received his (Saiful's) visit in my capacity as a leader and his as an ordinary citizen who wanted to tell me something. I did not know him before this," Najib told a press conference at his office in Parliament.

When asked why, Saiful, a former aide to Anwar had come to him regarding the matter, Najib said that he did not know, but assumed that the youth needed his help after he had said that he knew one of his officers.
Najib said Saiful had been to his office to meet one of his officers regarding a scholarship application but he (Najib) had not met Saiful then.
When asked whether he believed that what was said by Saiful had any basis, or otherwise, Najib said initially he was also unsure that what had been said by Mohd Saiful was true or false.
"I wouldn't dare say, I thought he looked genuine because he was afraid. His hands were cold. But I am not brave enough to make a conclusion. I told him to make his own decision," Najib said.
Najib denied that that he had advised Saiful to make a police report.
He said that during their meeting, Saiful had told everything that had happened to him.
Najib also denied allegations that he had conspired against Anwar.
When asked on what was told by Saiful, Najib smiled and said, "Oh, there were many stories, I might tell one day but after the court case."
Najib also said he was ready to give evidence if this was needed, following his exposure.
"Yes, I am ready. But what is there to ask? I merely heard his story. What is more important is the explanation from him, not from me," he said.
When he was asked why he felt that Anwar was using the case to launch this attack against him, Najib said he was unsure.
"I do not know, perhaps he thinks I am behind this boy (Saiful ) but the truth is there is no conspiracy, he came to see me alleging that he had been sodomised by Anwar," Najib said.
Regarding whether, or not, he was willing to subject himself to further investigation on the case, Najib instead of answering, posted a question to the reporter, asking him that to give a good reason why he should be investigated.
"The police have investigated the entire Altantuya case so they know everything," Najib said.
"Since a politician never believes what he says, he is quite surprised to be taken at his word."
