In Malaysia, former Prime Minister Najib Razak has been found guilty on multiple charges of graft and was sentenced to 12 years in jail. The charges stem from the multibillion-dollar looting of the government’s investment fund. Najib faces a total of 42 charges in five separate trials. Last week, Goldman Sachs reached a nearly $4 billion settlement with the current Malaysian government over its role in the corruption scandal. Goldman Sachs raised $6.5 billion for the fund, which was routinely looted by government officials, people working for the fund, and two senior Goldman bankers.
