Happy Belated Bossku Day!

Yesterday morning, all eyes were on our former Prime Minister, Najib Razak as he was convicted of all seven charges at the trial of cases involving the 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) scandal.

The charges include one count of abuse of power, three counts of money laundering, and three counts criminal breach of trust (CBT) amounting to RM42 million. Each charge carries up to 15-20 years in jail along with fines that total 5 times the amount of bribery – you can read more about it by clicking, here.

In a more recent update, The Star reported that Judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali sentenced Najib to 12 years imprisonment and RM210 million fine for one count of abuse of power. For three counts of criminal breach of trust, Najib was sentenced to 10 years jail for each of the charges.

For three counts of money laundering, another 10 years jail each. The court ordered for the jail time to run concurrently.

While the ex-PM was being convicted inside the Duta Court Complex, many of his supporters outside, mostly clad in blue and red, were emotional as their Bossku was found guilty. According to Malay Mail, veteran actor Sulaiman Yassin, better known as “Mat Over”, said he was disappointed over the verdict.

“This is nothing but a political decision. I feel that he (Najib) was sabotaged in an unfair political game,” he said outside the court.

Wangsa Maju Division Wanita chief, Noriah Ibrahim, who was also present, tearfully said, “I am very angry over the decision… I have supported him since his cases started in 2018 until now. I supported him not for the glamour or money but for the sake of ensuring a brighter future for future generations”.

As the display of emotions was happening outside the court, netizens on social media, on the other hand, can’t help but notice that many were present without wearing face masks and were concerned that a new COVID-19 cluster would emerge from the congregation.

Even health director-general Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said that he was disappointed to witness the situation.
