"So you will find everybody around Datuk Seri Najib and 1MDB, and SRC (company linked to Najib) are all people arranged by Jho Low (fugitive billionaire). So everything he (Jho Low) says was in fact followed."
A Malaysian judge on Monday ordered former Prime Minister Najib Razak to enter a defence at his first corruption trial linked to the multibillion-dollar looting at the 1MDB state investment fund that helped spur his shocking election ouster last year.
A calm Najib said in court he would testify in his defence when the trial resumes.
High Court Judge Mohamad Nazlan Mohamad Ghazali said the prosecution had established its case on charges of abuse of power, breach of trust and money laundering.
The seven charges relate to 42 million ringgit (10.1 million US dollars) that allegedly went into Najib's bank accounts from SRC International, a former unit of the 1MDB fund.
The judge said it was clear that Najib, who was also finance minister at the time, had wielded authority and power in SRC and taken actions for personal interest.
He said the prosecution has established dishonesty in misappropriating the funds.
Defence lawyers said Najib would be the first witness called when the trial resumes December 3.
Defense lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah told the media outside the courtroom that fugitive financier Low Taek Jho, better known as Jho Low, was the mastermind behind the 1MDB scandal.
Najib is also charged in four other cases in the 1MDB scandal that led to investigations in several countries.
His wife, several officials from his government, and the US bank Goldman Sachs also face charges related to the scandal.
