KUALA LUMPUR: Judge Mohammad Nazlan said that the defence team of former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak had failed to raise reasonable doubt on a charge of abuse of power concerning monies related to 1MDB-linked company, SRC International.

When reading out his judgment, High Court Judge Nazlani did not spell out a verdict but said Najib’s lawyers had failed in “rebutting the presumption on the balance of probabilites or raising reasonable doubt” on the charge of abuse of power.

Najib faces seven charges of criminal breach of trust, money laundering and abuse of power against Najib for allegedly illegally receiving nearly US$10 million from former 1MDB unit SRC International. He had plead not guilty. – Reuters
