Former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has been given a clean bill of health and has been discharged from Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL).

This was amid complaints from Najib’s family that the former prime minister – whose condition deteriorated today – was discharged despite being in ill health.

Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said Najib was admitted to HKL on Friday and his treatment was categorised as an elective case, which was non-urgent.

“His examinations and tests were conducted by heads of their respective fields.

“HKL also held two family conferences that were attended by the former prime minister and his family members.


“The results of the tests were conveyed during these conferences in line with professional medical practices,” he said today.

He said Najib’s family was informed about the specialists’ unanimous decision to discharge him.

“He was healthy when he was allowed to be discharged from HKL.

“The medications prescribed to him during his admission were the same type as the ones he had been given previously.”
