Malaysia: Najib’s case ‘the worst kind’ of abuse of position, says trial judge

The trial involving former Malaysian premier Najib Razak has been regarded as “the worst kind” of abuse of position, criminal breach of trust (CBT) and money laundering by the High Court judge who convicted him.

Justice Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali remarked that Najib also did not express any remorse after he was found guilty on July 28 of seven counts of corruption in the case involving RM42 million (S$13.8 million) that was deposited into his personal bank accounts.

The funds belonged to SRC International, a former unit of state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad.

The judge made his remarks in a 801-page grounds of judgment, with the report dated Aug 21.
