At Najib's Pekan do, visitors say ex-PM innocent until proven guilty

About 500 people were at former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak's residence in Pekan, Pahang today for his Hari Raya open house, which he had described as a "modest" affair.

Though this was starkly different from the Hari Raya celebrations he used to hold at Seri Perdana in Putrajaya when he was still prime minister, many of those who turned up today appear to still be hugely supportive of him, clamouring to greet and take pictures with him.

Many of the attendees whom Malaysiakini spoke with did not seem too bothered with the allegations against him by the new government and the fact residences linked to him were raided and cash and jewellery seized.

They opined that it was the government's right to investigate and Najib should be presumed innocent until proven guilty.
