Malaysia’s Former Leader: Najib Razak has been hit with 25 new charges of Money Laundering and Abuse Of Power, linked to the ‘1MDB mega-scandal’, including allegations that hundreds of millions of dollars were transferred to his personal bank account.
Since his shock election defeat in May, he has now been charged with a total of 32 counts related to the state fund ‘1MDB’, which he and his cronies allegedly looted!
He was accused of receiving illegal transfers from the fund to his own accounts, totalling nearly 555 million dollars. The suspicious transfers were a key chapter in the scandal, although Najib had previously insisted they were a donation from Saudi royalty. Najib pleaded not guilty to all the charges, during a court appearance in Kuala Lumpur.
