Najib’s appeals thrown out by Federal Court

PETALING JAYA: The Federal Court has today dismissed all three of former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak’s appeals on interlocutory matters related to his SRC International case.

The three interlocutory appeals were a demand for evidentiary and investigative documents from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), including witness statements; the legality of the SRC International case transfer to the high court following the attorney-general’s withdrawal of his transfer certificate; and a demand for gag order on the media and public from discussing Najib’s criminal cases.

A seven-judge panel, led by Chief Justice Richard Malanjum, also ruled in favour of Attorney-General Tommy Thomas by allowing his appeal against a court order to show the appointment letter of fiat prosecutor Sulaiman Abdullah.

The other judges were Chief Judge of Malaya Tan Sri Zaharah Ibrahim, Chief Judge of Sabah and Sarawak Datuk Seri David Wong Dak Wah, Tan Sri Ramly Ali, Datuk Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat, Tan Sri Idrus Harun and Datuk Nallini Pathmanathan.
