Thanks for this detailed explanation of how members of the Najib regime made so much money. As a follow-up, it would be good to know how this political faction was elected into power, and how it stayed there. Money goes only so far.

PS People around the world will ask me what was going on in Malaysia and how the system protected itself for so long. That's a tough job, to explain all of this while waiting for an airplane. So for a shortcut I just told him to Google the terms 'Mongolian girlfriend', and follow the links.
