A review of the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) project is now necessary after a witness in the ongoing 1MDB trial told the court that it was mooted by the previous administration to bail out 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB), says Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

The testimony was given at the High Court by Datuk Amhari Efendi Nazaruddin, ex-special officer to former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, on Wednesday (Sept 4) during the 1MDB trial.
