Money laundering charges must fall as CBT charges has not been proven, says defence

KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 23): The defence team in Datuk Seri Najib Razak's SRC International Sdn Bhd graft trial involving RM42 million of the company's funds has argued that the prosecution must first prove that the former prime minister indeed committed the predicate offences — criminal breach of trust (CBT) — in order for the money laundering charges to stand, as the two offences are related.
