Najib talks about his fall from power


Najib Razak was ousted as Malaysia’s prime minister and has been charged with multiple counts of money laundering and abuse of power. He talked to the Financial Time’s Victor Mallet earlier this month about what went wrong and the threat of jail.

You really have no idea how to run a country. And the problem has been compounded by your greediness. If you are guilty of those murders link to you, you better start asking Allah for forgiveness

Expensive gifts from some monarch? Who are you trying to bulls…?! If you received so many expensive gifts, the right thing to do is donate most of them for charity. But what did your greedy Rosy did? Hoard all the diamonds, gold and bags! How many hands, necks and fingers does she has????!!!


The baldy former pm and her lady rosechan are making Malaysian fool.shameless person on earth and still can wave hands.

What a load of Bull
When you are in power 1MDB fiasco was never to be questioned by the local & foreign media & public.
Now you want to clear your name & have foreign journalists to make sure it’s a fair trial.
Shows a lot about you
I hope it’s a fair trial & a fair sentencing like throwing away the key for what you have done to the Rakyat
Anything less than that is mockery of Justice

You think you never fall,because you are pocketing a lot of money,and money is the king of cash to gain power.But you have forgotten that there is a person call God,he give you the lesson what is call karma.until now you still never wake up and realize this.If you keep on denial,more and more will come not even your self but all people
surrounding you.Stop doing defence and confess Maybe can receive less punishment.
