KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters): On trial for corruption that includes the multibillion-dollar 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) fraud, former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said on Wednesday that the fall of the government that ousted him meant he now expected an atmosphere more conducive to a fair hearing.

Najib was voted out in 2018 amid anger over corruption in Malaysia, but the alliance that toppled him fell apart at the weekend amid turmoil following the resignation of 94-year-old Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
