Kuala Lumpur: Najib Razak, former Malaysian PM, charged with corruption for allegedly accepting huge money as a bribe.
Najib Razak is facing court trial due to the severe corruption charges on him. However, he is accused of taking 42 million Ringgit and three charges of criminal breach of trust. In addition, each charge can jail him for up to 20 years in prison.
