Malaysian ex-PM Najib faces bankruptcy over tax bill

KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) – Malaysia’s scandal-plagued former prime minister Najib Razak is facing bankruptcy for allegedly failing to pay more than USD400 million in taxes, which could bring his political career to an end.

Najib lost power in 2018 when his party, which had governed the Southeast Asian nation for six decades, was defeated at the polls after he became embroiled in a financial scandal.
