On social media, Najib Razak has thousands of fans but in jail, he only has one.
Far from the comforts of a prime minister, he is now in a Kajang Prison cell eating the same food as other prisoners and has to take cold showers – according to Prisons Department sources.
Be that as it may, Najib was present on 8 September at the Kuala Lumpur High Court in a well-dressed suit, but unlike other prisoners, Najib was not handcuffed as he was not deemed a “dangerous criminal”.
The prosecution’s 37th witness, R Uma Devi, told the High Court of Kuala Lumpur that the former prime minister once appointed the former SRC International CEO, Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil, as the authorised person with access to his personal bank accounts.
