Malaysiakini quoted sources as saying that the charges are related to the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001

"There will be at least three charges under money laundering... he (Najib) will be charged tomorrow morning (8 August) in Kuala Lumpur," a source told Malaysiakini. 

According to Malay Mail, Najib was already set to appear at the Kuala Lumpur High Court tomorrow, 8 August, for case management of the four charges against him.

The fresh charges are in connection with the SRC International Sdn Bhd case, a former subsidiary of 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB)

Najib is currently charged with three counts of criminal breach of trust and one count of abuse of power in relation to the SRC International Sdn Bhd case as well. 

He has claimed trial to all of them.

According to sources, Najib may be arrested after delivering his statement at the MACC office later today

"He (Najib) might be detained when he goes to give his statement to the authorities later," a source was quoted as saying by Malay Mail. 

The source further alleged that Najib will be questioned as an accused today, rather than a witness for the SRC International Sdn Bhd case.

It was also said that the former premier may spend the night locked up in the MACC office before heading to the Kuala Lumpur High Court tomorrow.
