Najib Razak is the former Prime Minister of Malaysia, who served from April 2009 to May 2018. He served as the country’s sixth Prime Minister, where he was also the Chairman of the Barisan Nasional Coalition and the President of the United Malays National Organization.
During Najib’s tenure as prime minister, policies of economic liberalization were introduced during this period, including reducing government subsidies, removing restrictions on foreign investment, and removing priority given to Malaysians in the corporate world.
Additionally, his administration jailed opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim after he was found guilty of sodomy, prosecuted a number of her critics on sedition charges, and enacted a goods and services tax. He is now known as a convicted criminal who served as the Prime Minister of Malaysia.
Malaysia’s Supreme Court upheld Najib Razak’s 12-year sentence for corruption
Former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak has been sentenced to 12 years in prison after losing his latest appeal against a verdict linked to the multibillion-dollar 1MDB scandal. In 2015, Najib was linked to a major fraud scandal involving the government investment company 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), which sparked protests calling for his ouster, organized by the grassroots organization Bersih.
In response to allegations of corrupt practices, Najib tightened his grip on power by removing Muhyiddin Yassin, then deputy prime minister, rejecting two publications and pushing through the legislature a controversial National Security Council bill that gave the prime minister unheard of authority.
Due to Najib’s numerous subsidy cuts that contributed to the increase in the cost of living, as well as the shift in oil prices and the fallout from the 1MDB scandal, rallies to try to remove Najib culminated in the Malaysian Citizens’ Declaration by Mahathir Mohamad, Pakatan Harapan and NGOs.
As a result, he lost the 2018 general election, and the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, which was investigating how RM42 million, or US$10.6 million, flowed into Najib’s bank account from SRC International, which is linked to 1MDB, detained him on 3 July 2018.
During the search of his residences, the police seized several designer accessories worth 273 million dollars. He was then accused of abuse of power, multiple counts of breach of trust, money laundering and tampering with the 1MDB audit report.
On 28 July 2020, Najib was found guilty by the Supreme Court on all seven counts of abuse of power, money laundering and breach of trust, making him the first Malaysian prime minister to be found guilty of corruption. He was sentenced to 12 years in prison and fined RM210 million and on 23 August 2022, the Federal Court upheld the sentence and dismissed his latest appeal. He will now begin serving a 12-year sentence.
