Today, we heard how Najib had basically authorised himself to raise some US$3bn — money that was meant to be poured into a joint venture which ultimately fell through, and money that, along with hundreds of millions more, is now nowhere to be found. Patrick Teoh presents for the Malaysian Insight.
You’ll also hear how government agencies tried to control the narrative around 1MDB: downplay Najib’s role and make it look like a political attack against the then PM.
