KUALA LUMPUR - The trial involving former Malaysian premier Najib Razak has been regarded as"the worst kind" of abuse of position, criminal breach of trust and money laundering by the High Court judge who convicted the former prime minister.

Mr Nazlan said based on how the crimes were committed, the huge sum involved and its public impact, he would not hesitate to characterise the case as"the worst kind" of abuse of position, CBT and money laundering. Najib was sentenced to 10 years' jail each for the three counts of CBT and three counts of money laundering.Najib, in his mitigation speech where he directly addressed the judge, had described his achievements over his nine years as premier, and cited the Muslim oath to deny any knowledge where the money came from.

Mr Nazlan said whether the moral compass of the nation required some recalibration was deserving of a separate discourse.
