Former premier Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s lead counsel Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah maintained that his client was a victim of a conspiracy led by Low Taek Jho or Jho Low after the U.S. Justice Department struck a deal with the fugitive financier to recoup almost US$1bil (RM4.18bil) of money looted from 1MDB.

The lawyer spoke to reporters on Monday after the High Court ordered Najib to enter his defence for seven charges involving the misappropriation of RM42mil in SRC International funds.
