    Former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak is set to return to court on Monday for the second of four trials involving money allegedly stolen from a state investment fund.

    He is accused of using his position to illegally obtain funds totalling $550m between 2011 and 2014.

    But he denies the charges, calling them politically motivated.
