Pakatan Harapan politicians and journalists who brought the 1MDB financial scandal to light have deemed today’s High Court’s decision on the RM42 million SRC International case as a vindication and justice for all Malaysians.

In a series of tweets, Damansara MP Tony Pua said it was “justice for Malaysians” that former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak was found guilty on all seven charges.

The DAP politician also deemed it a “vindication” that Najib was convicted for abuse of power.

The Wall Street Journal journalist Tom Wright, who co-authored the book Billion Dollar Whale on the 1MDB scandal, simply called the decision “justice”.

Sarawak Report’s Clare Rewcastle Brown told Free Malaysia Today that judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali’s verdict was “devastating” for Najib.

“At least the court has remained independent.

“I especially liked that the judge made the point that surely Najib would have sent the king of Saudi Arabia a thank-you note if he thought that was where the money came from,” she was quoted as saying about the judge’s comments when delivering his ruling this morning.
