NAJIB Razak said his stepson Riza Aziz agreed to a plea bargain settlement so that he would not have to spend the next 10 years of his life in court.

“If you ask me, I would have preferred Riza to continue the process in court. If he continued the process in court, the real facts would have surfaced,” said the former prime minister yesterday on Facebook live.
