This time is not about the need to account for the disappearance of RM42 billion from the coffers of 1MDB, the nation’s investment arm – it is now the entry of US$700 million (MR$2.67 billion) into the private accounts of Najib Tun Razak, the prime minister of Malaysia, as alleged by the Wall Street Journal.

If this revelation is true, then Najib will go down in the history of the country as the most corrupted prime minister. What is more, he will have to resign from his post and if prosecuted and found guilty, he will have to spend some years in prison.

While Najib has dismissed the revelation by AWJ as something plotted by his enemies to see his downfall, it is not confirmed for sure yet whether he will take the publication to court.
