Profile of ex-Malaysian PM Najib arrested, to face charges in 1MDB case

Former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak will face charges of abusing his position and graft related to money allegedly siphoned off from state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad, the country’s anti-corruption agency said on Wednesday (September 19). Najib was arrested on Wednesday afternoon and will be taken to court on Thursday, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission said in a statement (MACC). Najib will face “several charges”, some of which will relate to the transfer of 2.6 billion ringgit ($628 million) into his account, the MACC said. The charges will be brought under a section of the MACC Act which deals with the offence of using office or position for gratification, the agency said.
