No VIP treatment for Najib, says Prisons Dept

PETALING JAYA: The Prisons Department has denied rumours that Datuk Seri Najib Razak would be given special treatment at Kajang Prison.

In a Facebook post on Wednesday (Aug 24), the department said posted a viral photo, supposedly showing Najib's spacious jail cell with a TV, shelves, three beds and a table.

The photo was captioned “stop the spread of fake information”.

Comments about Najib's supposed VIP treatment had gone viral on social media after the Federal Court upheld his conviction and 12 years imprisonment for misappropriating RM42mil of SRC International Sdn Bhd on Tuesday (Aug 23).

He was taken to the Kajang Prison on Tuesday evening following the apex court’s decision.
