KUALA LUMPUR: Former prime minister Najib Razak is expected to face more than 10 counts of committing criminal breach of trust (CBT) linked to the SRC International Sdn Bhd case.

Najib is expected to be charged in a Kuala Lumpur court tomorrow with Attorney-General Tommy Thomas leading the prosecution team.

A court source said Najib would be charged at the Criminal Sessions Court 2 of the Kuala Lumpur Courts Complex.

It is learned the case would be mentioned before Sessions Court judge Zainal Abidin Kamarudin and then transferred to the Criminal High Court 1 before Justice Azman Abdullah.

The 1MDB Special Task Force said in a statement today that Najib was arrested at his Jalan Langgak Duta residence at 2.35pm over investigations into SRC International and would be charged at 8.30am tomorrow.

Najib had gone to the MACC headquarters twice earlier to have his statement recorded over investigations into SRC International. SRC International was a 1MDB subsidiary placed under the jurisdiction of the finance ministry in 2012.

MACC chief commissioner Mohd Shukri Abdull said on May 22 that the MACC probe in 2015 against Najib involved RM2.6 billion and the RM42 million that was believed to have been transferred from SRC International to the former prime minister’s personal bank accounts.
