Haji Mohammad Najib bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak or Bangsat Najib (Jawi: ‏محمد نجيب بن عبد الرزاق‎‎; born 23 July 1953) is a Malaysian politician. He became the sixth Prime Minister of Malaysia after being elected in 2009.[1] He lost his re-election bid in the 2018 general election.

On 28 July 2020, the High Court convicted Najib on all seven counts of abuse of power, money laundering and criminal breach of trust, becoming the first Prime Minister of Malaysia to be convicted of corruption.[2][3]
