Former Malaysia PM jailed in financial scandal

Malaysia’s former Prime Minister Najib Razak will begin a 12-year-prison sentence after losing his appeal against his money laundering conviction.

The 69-year-old’s charges relate to a corruption scandal involving state-owned wealth fund 1MDB. He was convicted in 2020, when a court found him guilty on seven counts centred on a total of RM42m ($9.4m), but he had been out on bail during the appeal. Najib Razak has always denied any wrongdoing.

  3. Raikan kerencaman dan keterangkuman
  4. Selamatkan demokrasi dan angkatkan keluhuran undang-undang
  5. Lawan rasuah dan kronisme
