Did the Kajang prison warden invite Najib Razak to his home, after he was convicted and jailed?!
Take a look at the viral video, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : Kajang Prison Warden Invited Najib Razak To His Home!
People are sharing a video that purportedly shows the Kajang prison warden showing former Prime Minister Najib Razak around his home, even though he was supposed to be in jail!
Truth : Kajang Prison Warden Did NOT Invite Najib Razak To His Home!
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp and social media, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : That Is Not The Kajang Prison Warden
The only person that I can visually identify is former Prime Minister Najib Razak, who is seen wearing a peach coloured Baju Melayu.
The person showing him around the house is not the Kajang prison warden, but a Felda settler called Ithnin Abdullah.
That is actually a homestay that Ithnin Abdullah owns, and is not the home of the Kajang prison warden.
Fact #2 : The Video Was Posted On 17 June 2022
The video was originally posted on TikTok on 17 June 2022 – more than 2 months before Najib Razak was jailed 12 years for corruption.
You can also see the name of the original poster in the viral video – @DatoNajibRazakFan. This was the description of the original TikTok video (with my English translation) :
Fact #3 : Najib Razak Only Allowed To Go To Hospital / Court
Najib Razak started serving his 12-year prison sentence on 23 August 2022. Since then, he has only been allowed to leave the Kajang prison only to go to the hospital, or to court.
On August 25 and 26, 2022, he was brought out of prison to attend two ongoing criminal trials :
- Aug. 25 : Misappropriate of RM 2.28 billion from 1MDB
- Aug. 26 : Tampering of the Auditor-General’s audit report on 1MDB
On September 4, 2022, he was admitted to Hospital Kuala Lumpur, allegedly for intestinal bleeding.
On September 5, 2022, he returned to the High Court to continue with the main 1MDB trial.
