Malaysia faces crucial graft test as Najib’s first 1MDB verdict looms

Malaysian former PM Najib Razak faces his first verdict on Tuesday in a landmark case that tests the country’s efforts to stamp out corruption. Najib was voted out in a 2018 election amid public anger over allegations that $4.5 billion was siphoned in a scheme from 1MDB. Prosecutors allege more than $1 billion made its way into Najib’s personal accounts.
