KUALA LUMPUR, July 28 – Malaysia’s former Prime Minister Najib Razak arrived at a Kuala Lumpur court on Tuesday to hear a verdict in the first of several graft trials linked to a multi-billion dollar scandal at state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

A high court judge is scheduled to open proceedings at 10 a.m. (0200 GMT) before delivering a ruling on seven charges that Najib faces over allegations he received 42 million ringgit ($9.9 million) from former 1MDB unit SRC International in 2014.
