The Najib Razak 1MDB Trial Ep 19: The Mafia boss and his advisor


Yesterday, the court heard a short exchange of Italian words. Patrick Teoh presents for the Malaysian Insight.

Shahrol Halmi called Jho Najib’s “consigliere” – an advisor to a mafia boss.

And in return, Shafee Abdullah called the witness a “soprammobile” or a table ornament, implying that he was basically useless as the CEO of 1MDB.
