It's 12 years jail, RM210m fine for Najib
6.30pm - Justice Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali sentences Najib Abdul Razak to 12 years jail and fines him RM210 million for abuse of power.
As for the three money laundering and three criminal breaches of trust charges, each charge carries a 10-year jail sentence.
All the jail sentences are to run concurrently. There is no fine for the money laundering charges.

Police arrest youth for trying to climb gate of court complex
6.25pm - A male youth in his 20s was arrested by police at the main entrance of the Kuala Lumpur Courts Complex.
While there has yet to be an official statement from the police, it is learned that the man who was clad in a pink collared t-shirt was detained when he tried to climb the complex's gate.
It has yet to be established if the man was a supporter of former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak.
The suspect was kept inside the court's security post for about 10 minutes before a police patrol car came and took him away.

Najib recites 'sumpah laknat' again, denies knowledge of RM42m
5.30pm - After the defence and prosecution completed their submissions for mitigation, Najib addresses the court.
He begins with summarising his economic achievements during his tenure as prime minister.
"I ensured a fairer and gentler society. I was responsible for abolishing the ISA (Internal Security Act), which I was never given enough credit for. I wanted to ensure the country would not (be subjected to) abuse of power.
"In this regard, I put (forward) a proposal to implement a more transparent system for political donations. That proposal, unfortunately, requires bipartisan support, but the opposition at the time did not agree and the proposal did not see the light of day," he says.
He ends his brief statement by reciting a "sumpah laknat" before declaring that he did not solicit RM42 million.
"I did not plan (the receipt of) RM42 million nor was RM42 million offered. There was no evidence or witnesses to state so.
"I had no knowledge of the RM42 million. Wallahu, Wabillahi, Watallahi," he adds.

Prosecution seeks RM420m fine, imprisonment
5.25pm - The prosecution is requesting a RM210 million fine for the abuse of power offence, approximately five times the amount involved in the crime, and mandatory jail term.
As for the crime of criminal breach of trust, the prosecution is seeking a jail term of between two and 20 years as well as a fine, at the discretion of the court.
For the money laundering charge, the prosecution is seeking a jail term of not more than 15 years and a RM210 million fine, approximately five times the amount involved in the crime. - Mkini
