Former prime minister Najib Razak was today sent back to Kajang Prison after undergoing treatment and monitoring at the Cheras Rehabilitation Hospital (HRC) in Kuala Lumpur.

HRC said in a statement that the consultant specialists from Hospital Kuala Lumpur and HRC had given Najib a medical release and allowed him to be sent to prison again.

According to HRC, since his admission to the hospital on Monday, the Pekan MP had undergone several examinations and rehabilitation treatments.

"From the latest examination conducted on him by HRC rehabilitation specialists, it was found that he was in good health.

"He was also given lessons by HRC physiotherapists to carry out exercise techniques on his own," it said. 
HRC said the consultant specialists had also held a family conference with Najib and his close family members who were informed of the latest situation as well as the health monitoring plan for the former prime minister.

Najib was sent to Kajang Prison on Aug 23 after the Federal Court upheld his 12-year prison sentence and RM210 million fine for misappropriating RM42 million in SRC International funds.

On Sept 12, the prison department informed the Kuala Lumpur High Court that it had ordered for Najib to be taken to hospital for a medical examination after being informed that his health condition was unsatisfactory.
