Malaysian ex-leader Najib Razak's most significant 1Malaysia Development Berhad trial begins today, centering on allegations that hundreds of millions of dollars linked to the state fund ended up in his bank account.

Claims that Najib and his cronies pilfered massive sums from the fund, and spent it on everything from real estate to artwork, contributed to the defeat of his long-ruling coalition to a reformist alliance.

He is expected to face several trials, but today’s will be the biggest, with Najib facing 21 counts of money-laundering and four of abuse of power, including allegations that 2.28 billion ringgit was funnelled to his account in transfers from overseas banks.
