The Najib Razak 1MDB Trial Ep 2: Before it was 1MDB, it was TIA


Before it was 1MDB, it was the Terengganu Investment Authority (TIA). Patrick Teoh reports for the Malaysian Insight.

On Day Two of the 1MDB trial on 29 August 2019, three witnesses took the stand.

The first two were recipients of Najib’s cheques, from the ousted prime minister’s personal accounts said to contain illicit funds.

The third witness gave the court a history lesson on 1MDB’s formation.
