Astro Awani and The Star reported that Datuk Seri Najib Razak, who is serving his 12-year jail sentence, is currently hospitalised and undergoing treatment at Hospital Kuala Lumpur.

According to Malay Mail, an unnamed aide to the convicted former prime minister confirmed the hospitalisation to be recent. However, the reason for admission is undisclosed.

Ya Datuk Seri’s condition is stable and he is currently undergoing all the required medical investigations.

Najib has been in prison since 23 August when a five-judge panel at the Federal Court upheld his conviction, RM210 million fine and 12-year prison sentence for embezzling RM42 million belonging to SRC International Sdn Bhd.

He faces another four criminal trials related to the 1MDB financial scandal, including two that have yet to start.

He has been brought out of prison twice so far to attend two ongoing criminal trials; the first on 25 August for the misappropriation of RM2.28 billion from 1MDB, and the next day for the resumption of his alleged tampering with the auditor-general’s audit report on 1MDB.

Najib is scheduled to return to the High Court tomorrow to continue the main 1MDB trial.
