KUALA LUMPUR (AFP): Former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak will go on trial this week over an extraordinary financial scandal that contributed to the downfall of his long-ruling coalition and reverberated around the world.

Najib and his circle are accused of stealing US$4.5bil (RM18bil) from Malaysian sovereign wealth fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) in a mind-boggling fraud that stretched from Switzerland to the Seychelles.
