The former leader is being investigated over allegations that billions of dollars were looted from 1MDB, a state fund he founded.

Malaysia’s current prime minister, Tun Mahathir mentioned in a statement to Reuters previously that investigators have an “almost perfect case” against former leader Najib Razak, who will face charges of bribery, theft of government funds and embezzlement for his role in the 1MDB scandal.

Both Najib and the fund have denied any wrongdoing.
