前马来西亚总理纳吉布对所有腐败指控不认罪 Ex-Malaysian PM Najib Charged with Corruption, Pleads Not Guilty

前马来西亚总理纳吉布被正式指控在涉及国家投资基金一马发展有限公司(1MDB)上百亿美元的丑闻中有犯罪行为。

纳吉布星期三在一家初级法庭被指控与违反信托约定有关的三项刑事犯罪和一项腐败罪。纳吉布一天前在家中被马来西亚反腐委员会的人员逮捕。这位64岁的前总理被控从陷入麻烦的一马发展有限公司前子公司SRC国际转走了104亿美元。

每一项控罪都可判最高20年刑期。纳吉布在星期三法庭聆讯上表示对所有指控不认罪。

纳吉布被捕后,他的一段录音在社交媒体上公布。他说,他不是完人,但是对他以及他家人的被指控的罪行都不是事实。纳吉布的发言人称这些指控“出于政治动机”。

Former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak has been formally charged in connection with a multi-billion dollar scandal involving sovereign wealth fund 1MDB.

Najib was charged Wednesday in a lower court with three counts of criminal breach of trust and one count of corruption, a day after his arrest at his home by agents with the country's anti-corruption commission. The 64-year-old ex-prime minister is accused of siphoning $10.4 billion from SRC International, a former unit of the troubled 1MDB.

Each of the charges carry a maximum prison sentence of 20 years. Najib pleaded not guilty to the charges during Wednesday's hearing.

In a recorded message posted on social media hours after his arrest, Najib said he was not perfect, but said the charges against him and his family were not all true. His spokesman called the charges "politically motivated."
