Former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak pleaded not guilty at the Kuala Lumpur High Court on Wednesday to three charges of money laundering as part of a probe into money missing from state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB). The charges were related to three electronic transfers amounting to RM42 million from SRC International, a former 1MDB unit, into Najib's personal bank account and will be merged with his other charges of bribery and breach of trust.
