Malaysia's Najib quizzed over scandal, graft fighter reveals threats 22.5.2018 General News
Former Malaysian leader Najib Razak was questioned by anti-corruption authorities today over a financial scandal after his shock election loss, as the country's top graft fighter revealed he faced harassment and threats during an earlier probe of the controversy. Najib's coalition suffered a defeat at the May 9 poll, beaten by a reformist alliance led by Mahathir Mohamad, which broke their six-decade stranglehold on power. Mahathir, who first served as premier from 1981-2003 and came out of retirement aged 92 to take on Najib, campaigned on claims that the former leader and his cronies looted sovereign wealth fund 1MDB. Billions of dollars were allegedly stolen from the fund in a sophisticated fraud, and used to buy everything from artworks to high-end real estate. Najib and his reviled, luxury-loving wife Rosmah Mansor have had a swift fall from grace. They have been barred from leaving the country, and police have seized handbags, jewels and cash during raids on properties linked to

Malaysia ex-PM Najib quizzed by graft agency 22.5.2018 General News
Scandal-tainted former Malaysian leader Najib Razak arrived today at the anti-corruption agency for questioning over a massive financial scandal that helped to bring down his long-ruling regime.

Former Malaysian PM Najib questioned by anti-graft agency 22.5.2018 General News
Former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak was being questioned today by anti-corruption police about a graft scandal that could lead to criminal charges against him. He was summoned nearly two weeks after the defeat of his long-ruling coalition in national elections, a loss partly due to public anger over alleged corruption at the 1MDB state investment fund that Najib set up. U.S. investigators say Najib's associates stole and laundered USD 4.5 billion from the fund, some of which landed in Najib's bank account. Swarmed by reporters, Najib looked calm and smiled as he was escorted into the agency's building. Najib has denied any wrongdoing since the scandal erupted in 2015. He sacked critics in his government, including a deputy prime minister and the attorney-general, and muzzled the media to try to survive the fallout. Najib and his wife have been barred from leaving the country after the new government reopened an investigation into the case. Police have raided his home and other
