Najib was back in court on the morning of 16 October after pulling a no-show the previous day. Patrick Teoh presents for the Malaysian Insight.
The court heard about another non-appearance: how a joint venture was birthed out of Najib’s personal relationship with Saudi royalty which led to 1MDB having to scramble and skipping out on carrying due diligence to get the joint venture signed in time for a Saudi prince’s royal visit.
