KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak on Wednesday pleaded not guilty to three charges of criminal breach of trust and one charge of abuse of power.

Najib was earlier charged in court as part of an investigation into missing money at scandal-tainted state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

He has denied wrongdoing.
