According to Malaysiakini, four charges were read out to Najib in court in an investigation linked to the SRC International Sdn Bhd case. SRC International Sdn Bhd was a subsidiary of 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) before it was placed under the jurisdiction of the Finance Ministry in 2012. The charges are connected to how RM42 million (US$10.6 million) was siphoned from SRC International into Najib’s personal bank account.

He was charged with three counts of criminal breach of trust under Section 409 of the Penal Code and one count under Section 23 of the MACC Act where he had abused his position as a public officer.

At the time of writing, the case has been transferred to the High Court as Malaysia’s new attorney-general Tommy Thomas will lead the prosecution against Najib. They are focusing on SRC International at the moment as other 1MDB-related transactions had taken place through foreign banks and companies. Najib has claimed trial for all four charges against him.

Sit tight, because this is just the beginning! This is going to be the trial of the century in Malaysia!
