How to Support a Grieving Friend

It's so hard to know what to do when your friends are hurting. The thing is, you can't cheer someone up by telling them to look on the bright side, or by giving them advice. 

It just doesn't work. 

Watch this video to learn the one thing that will improve all of your "I'm here for you" intentions, and be that supportive person you most want to be:

US securities regulators had alleged that former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak (right) received kickbacks involving sovereign wealth fund 1MDB, as American authorities publicly link him to the multi-billion-dollar corruption scandal for the first time. 

The one-time leader is currently on trial in Malaysia, facing a litany of charges connected to the scandal. 

The US Securities and Exchange Commission cited Najib as a key figure in a corruption case brought against Tim Leissner (left), a former Goldman Sachs executive. 

The SEC issued an order permanently banning Leissner from the financial industry as part of a settlement deal announced Monday with the former investment banker. 

Known formally as 1Malaysia Development Berhad, the sovereign wealth fund raised billions of dollars in a series of bond offerings with Goldman Sachs. Leissner worked with others to misappropriate more than $2.7 billion as part of a scheme to secure business for the American investment giant, the SEC order said. 

The money was distributed "as bribes and kickbacks to government officials in Malaysia and Abu Dhabi, including but not limited to Najib Razak", the SEC order highlighted. 

US officials had previously referred only to "government officials" without naming Najib. 

Not only that but the SEC even alleged there was an illicit transfer of $1.3 million for the purpose of paying for jewelry for Rosmah Mansor, Najib's wife. 

No “sumpah laknat” can save you, Najib! Guilty is guilty and you know it!
