COMMENT | If Najib Abdul Razak were a washing machine, the sales pitch would sound like this: "The machine is good at laundering and has an advanced spin cycle."
On July 28, the curtain came down on one of the most infamous political families in Malaysia, and the son of Abdul Razak was shown to be nothing more than a common thief.
When the disgraced Najib was found guilty on all seven counts after the long-awaited SRC International trial, members of the Razak clan must have been humiliated. The nation had never before experienced the ignominy of having a former prime minister who was convicted, who had brought Malaysia to its knees and shamed the country.
Najib 's rent-a-mob converged outside the Kuala Lumpur High Court complex and failed to observe social distancing; but there was one notable absence.
