Yesterday (19 September 2018), Datuk Seri Najib Razak was arrested again by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) over the RM2.6 billion he received from an Arab Royal. This arrest comes days after the former prime minister released the receipts for the money he had received from the Royal.
Today (20 September 2018), Najib was charged 21 counts of money laundering and four counts of power abuse, as reported by Malay Mail. That’s 25 charges in total!
These charges were filed against him over the receipt, as well as the alleged use and transfer of RM2.6 billion from 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).
Earlier this afternoon, the charges were read to him in front of Sessions Court judge Azura Alwi. Following that, Najib has pleaded not guilty to all 25 charges and he maintains that the money was donated by an Arab royal in 2013.
Prior to this, the ex-Umno president was charged with three counts of criminal breach of trust and one count of power abuse over RM42 million worth of funds on 4 July 2018. On 8 August 2018, Najib was again charged with three counts of money laundering over the same amount.
Najib’s lawyers better start working hard and fast to defend their client because they have got a huge case ahead of them. What do you think of our former leader denying these charges against him? Share your thought in the comments below!
