Former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak was brought to court here on Wednesday to face corruption charges related to his time in office.
Najib was escorted by police to the Kuala Lumpur Court. He was arrested by the country's anti-corruption body on Tuesday over the probe into his role in SRC International, a former unit of state investment fund 1MDB.
He is expected to face multiple charges, according to state news agency Bernama.
Investigators said 42-million ringgit (10.5 million U.S. dollars) from SRC International was transferred to Najib's personal bank account.
Najib has denied any wrongdoing. His spokesman said Tuesday that the charges and other ongoing investigation against him were "politically motivated" and the former Prime Minister will "clear his name in court."
