Ex-Malaysia PM takes the stand in 1MDB scandal

Dec 03, 2019 13:58 IST

Former Malaysian prime minister Najib Razak took the stand to defend himself in the 1MDB scandal on Tuesday, in the first of several trials linked to the multi-billion-dollar fraud. Razak faces charges of abuse of power, breach of trust and laundering of over 10 million US dollars. Huge sums were stolen from sovereign wealth fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad, allegedly by the ex-prime minister and his cronies, and spent on everything from high-end real estate to artwork.
