Najib is in jail – so… what next?

Prisoner Najib Razak

Follow us on our Malay and English WhatsApp, Telegram, Instagram, Tiktok and Youtube channels.

So the Federal Court has upheld the guilty verdict in Najib Razak’s SRC International case. Najib has been sentenced to 12 years in prison and fined RM210m ringgit.

While there may be some narrow escape routes left for Najib, the fact is Umno’s kleptocrat poster boy is currently behind bars, as we head towards the general election.

So what does this mean for our political landscape? BFM speaks to Dr Bridget Welsh, honorary research associate of the University of Nottingham Asia Research Institute – Malaysia.

Not 12 years as may be eligible for remission with prison less than 8 yrs or lesser if pardoned.
If pardoned will it not nullify all the efforts to bring him to justice even after being found guilty after almost four years of investigations and court procedures
Bless all
