Former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak has been admitted to the Kuala Lumpur General Hospital (HKL).
This was confirmed by his staff. At the time of writing, the nature of his medical condition is unknown but he is understood to be in stable condition.
“He is still being treated at HKL. I wish to thank the Prison Department and hospital staff for their cooperation,” Najib’s special officer Muhamad Mukhlis Maghribi told Malaysiakini.
The Pekan MP began serving his 12-year sentence for abuse of power, criminal breach of trust and money laundering on Aug 23.
It was always said by those who know him that one night in a lock up would break the pampered Najib. Clearly, it was indeed all too much for him.
So, now he has been transported to doubtless a private wing of the KL General Hospital, where he can return to being looked after hand and foot in the comfort of a prop-up bed. No mere prison hospital wing for him!
Without doubt there will be moves to claim his undescribed condition is permanent and that he should thus remain. Much in the same way that over in Switzerland Tarek Obaid has checked into a 6 star sanatorium where he can play video games from his bed all day on the proceeds of 1MDB’s stolen money.
