Former Malaysia PM jailed in financial scandal

Malaysia’s former Prime Minister Najib Razak will begin a 12-year-prison sentence after losing his appeal against his money laundering conviction.

The 69-year-old’s charges relate to a corruption scandal involving state-owned wealth fund 1MDB. He was convicted in 2020, when a court found him guilty on seven counts centred on a total of RM42m ($9.4m), but he had been out on bail during the appeal. Najib Razak has always denied any wrongdoing.

The views expressed in Aliran's media statements and the NGO statements we have endorsed reflect Aliran's official stand. Views and opinions expressed in other pieces published here do not necessarily reflect Aliran's official position.
