Najib’s first 1MDB trial won’t start tomorrow after all

Author:   |    Publish date:

PUTRAJAYA, Feb 11 — Datuk Seri Najib Razak today succeeded in deferring his first trial linked to the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal that was due to start tomorrow at the High Court.

The Court of Appeal today unanimously allowed Najib’s application to stay the trial, until the end of an appeal linked to the case’s transfer from the Sessions Court to the High Court.

The panel was chaired by Datuk Ahmadi Asnawi, and comprised judges Datuk Mohamed Zabidin Mohd Diah and Datuk Yew Jen Kie.

Najib, wearing a grey suit, was accompanied by his son Noorashman in court.

Najib was scheduled to face his first 1MDB-related trial tomorrow. The charges were three counts of money-laundering, three counts of criminal breach of trust and one count of power abuse over RM42 million of funds belonging to 1MDB’s former unit SRC International Sdn Bhd.

In a last-ditch attempt, Najib had on February 8 filed an application to stay his trial tomorrow, pending his appeal against the prosecution’s withdrawal of a certificate of transfer to shift the seven charges from the Sessions Court to the High Court.

Najib’s lawyers had previously mounted an unsuccessful bid at the High Court to defer his trial tomorrow.
