Shame on the country? Najib points a finger at the Mahathir era forex scandal  Former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak rejected judge Abdul Karim Abdul Jalil's assessment that his actions in the SRC International case were not a service to the country, but rather a disgrace to Malaysia.

For example, he said, during his tenure as prime minister, the country's assets grew from RM800 billion to RM2 trillion.  "I have created a lot of wealth for this country," he said.  According to the royal commission of inquiry into the matter, Bank Negara lost RM31.5 billion from 1992 to 1994.
