Najib Razak

Former Malaysian Prime Minister, Najib Razak has been found guilty of all seven charges in the 1MDB corruption scandal.

He was accused of receiving up to $10 million from the company linked to 1MDB.

High Court Judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali told the court he found “the defense has not succeeded in rebutting the presumption on the balance of probabilities or raising reasonable doubt on the charge against the accused.”

The verdict comes days after Malaysia resolved settlement talks with Goldman Sachs over the bank’s role in raising funds for 1MDB during Najib’s time as prime minister. Goldman agreed on a $3.9 billion settlement, including $2.5 billion in cash, in return for all its charges being dropped
