Strong case to charge Najib soon: Mahathir

The Pardons Board will only convene to consider Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s possible release on Wednesday PKR communications director Fahmi Fadzil said today

He and his supporters have said the charges are politically motivated by Najib to end his career.

Several people in his People's Justice Party (PKR) expect Anwar to walk free on Wednesday itself from the hospital where he been for the last few months recovering from a shoulder surgery.

Mahathir, who built much of his campaign by accusing Najib of corruption, vowed to control corruption and cronyism after the election.

Mahathir told the Wall Street Journal he would be in power for one to two years - before an expected handover to former opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, who is expected to be released on Wednesday after three years in jail on a sodomy conviction.

Mahathir was prime minister from 1983 to 2003, when he put the country on a determined development path guided by his dominant personality and increasingly arbitrary approach to opponents.

The volatile relationship between Anwar and Mahathir, from friends to foes to allies, has dominated Malaysia's political landscape for more than three decades and is central to the future of the alliance.

Mahathir sacked Anwar as his deputy prime minister in 1998. He jailed his former deputy on charges of sodomy and corruption.

In an astonishing U-turn past year, Anwar shook hands with Mahathir and agreed to join forces to oust scandal-tainted Najib.

"We are now in process of getting into details of matters he suppressed in his time", Mahathir said of Najib.

Mahathir, asked about the possible prosecution of his predecessor, Najib, said he thought that "in a short while" the government could have a case against him.

1MDB is now under global probes in at least six countries, including Switzerland and Singapore, over charges of money laundering and bribery.

He had barred Najib from leaving Malaysia and pledged to reopen a corruption probe into state fund 1MDB. "If there is no case against him, we don't go for detention without trial", Dr Mahathir was quoted as saying in the report.

"News broke in 2015 that about $700mn allegedly stolen from 1MDB had made its way into Najib's personal bank accounts". He and the fund have denied wrongdoing. Reuters was unable to reach Najib himself, his wife, or other family members and close associates on Saturday night.Reuters had seen about 20 police officers entering the marble-floored lobby of the Pavilion Residences apartment block in the Malaysian capital, just as Mahathir was holding a news conference to announce key members of his cabinet.At least a dozen other plainclothes law-enforcement officers were there to help them.
