Najib arrives at court to face fresh charges

KUALA LUMPUR: Former prime minister Najib Razak has arrived at the Sessions Court here to face new charges related to 1MDB subsidiary SRC International.

Najib arrived at 8.50am in a white Toyota Vellfire accompanied by two police escort vehicles.

He appeared calm as he entered the building.

Najib is expected to face more charges for money laundering offences over the RM42 million channelled to his bank account from SRC International.

Last month, he claimed trial to three charges of criminal breach of trust (CBT) and one charge of abuse of power.

He posted RM1 million bail for the four charges.

He was summoned to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) office in Bukit Tunku yesterday where he was again questioned over SRC International.

Najib is the first former prime minister to be hauled up to face criminal charges.

He and his wife Rosmah Mansor were barred from leaving Malaysia after the May 9 polls, with over RM1 billion worth of items seized from properties linked to his family.
