“I do not give up,” Najib wrote on Facebook on Monday, one day before the verdict, as he swore on Allah’s behalf his innocence. “If the Court finds me guilty, I will not stand by,” he said.

During the trial that began in April 2019, defense lawyers assured that the former Prime Minister would appeal

Najib was convicted of seven crimes. Of these, three are related to money laundering, three to abuse of trust, and one to abuse of power.  

I very rarely commented on anything political nowadays

But I did spend many years on the frontline dealing with 1MDB and SRC scandals as an MP

I never expected much from those years, but I did feel that all the heartbreaks were well worth it today

Well done Malaysia. pic.twitter.com/eopOVT7vXX

Najib claimed he was misled by Malaysian businessman Jho Low and other 1MDB advisers to believe that the millionaire funds received were a donation from the Saudi royal family

The sentence will have drastic political consequences. Najib will not be able to run for elections, although he will keep his seat in Parliament while the appeal is being held
