Najib, the 6th Malaysian Prime Minister known fondly as Bossku, is believed to have been admitted to HKL due to a possible viral infection
KUALA LUMPUR – Former Malaysian Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak (Najib) was admitted to Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL) on Tuesday around 2.30 pm after contracting high temperature and severe sore throat, possibly due to a viral infection, a source told NMH.
It is believed that the former PM, now serving a 12-year sentence in Kajang Prison for the SRC International case, is in stable condition, but further tests will be conducted this morning.
A close associate of Najib and President of Makkal Sakthi Malaysia Party, Datuk Seri R S Thanenthiran, said that he last met the former Premier in the KL High Court last week during the 1MDB-Tanore trial and the former PM seems fine, although he was looking a bit tired.
“But he was still cheerful then, greeting his friends and family members. Such is his personality and never wanting to trouble others even if he was in any sort of pain.
“We pray that (Datuk Seri) Najib will be given the best medical treatment and that he will recuperate well,” said Thanenthiran. – NMH
