While it may be difficult to adjust from Prime Minister to convicted criminal Najib should make the effort. Anyone less obsessed with a sense of self importance should have the sense to keep quiet while his political friends continue to obstruct the hearing of his appeal against conviction.
But not Najib who daily spouts his opinions on very conceivable topic. As though anyone is still interested in hearing what he has to say. Only one whose mental balance is so unresponsive to facts could behave as he is doing and the press does Malaysians no service by reporting what this discredited criminal has to say.
A criminal he is. So found to be by Malaysian justice. He has a right to appeal but should not assume, as he seems to, that it will prove to be his road out of years of imprisonment,
