Najib sues for defamation!

Readers of relevant news items about the case are entitled to ask themselves. Reputation? What reputation? How can a mega thief and worse claim to have any reputation other than one of being a mega criminal?
The answer seems to be that this case began in 2015 when Najib’s criminal behaviour was not yet public knowledge. Since all that became public the wheels of justice have ground very slowly and even now Najib is trying to get the case struck out. Why? Because he knows that the last thing he can afford to do is to give evidence on oath; even in Malaysia’s courts.
It will be interesting to see if the Courts go along with Najib’s tactics or force him to go into the witness box and provide grounds for a perjury prosecution.
