Thousands Protest Against Malaysia's Najib Razak - WSJ
- The planned protest, due to run through the weekend, follows a report in The Wall Street Journal last month that Malaysian investigators had traced nearly $700 million of deposits into what they believed were Mr. Najibâ€™s personal bank accounts after the movement of cash among agencies, banks and companies linked to 1MDB. Mr. Najib is head of 1MDBâ€™s advisory board.The Journal reported that the original source of the money was unclear and that the government investigation hadnâ€™t detailed what happened to the money that allegedly went into Mr. Najibâ€™s personal accounts. Mr. Najib has denied any wrongdoing or taking money for personal gain. The countryâ€™s antigraft agency said the money in Mr. Najibâ€™s account was a donor contribution that originated from the Middle East. The donor wasnâ€™t specified.
