SINGAPORE (Dec 9): On Dec 3, former Malaysian prime minister Najib Abdul Razak took the stand as the first witness in his trial for seven counts of abuse of power, criminal breach of trust and money-laundering of RM42 million from SRC International, a subsidiary of the beleaguered 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB).

For the first time in the country’s history, a former premier is in the docks and giving sworn testimony in his defence. Najib is on trial for what is believed to be the biggest and most wide-ranging graft scandal in recent years.

In a packed courtroom, Najib read out a 243-page sworn statement in Malay, in a question-and-answer format with more than 300 questions.
