SRC case: Defence closes case, court sets May 12 for submission

KUALA LUMPUR: The defence in former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s case involving misappropriation of RM42 million belonging to SRC International Sdn Bhd closed its case today after calling 19 witnesses.

Judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali then set April 21 for both parties to submit their written submissions and four days, beginning May 12 for the oral submissions.

Lawyer Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, representing Najib, told the court that the defence was closing its case after Malaysian Anti-Corruption Agency (MACC) assistant commissioner (forensic accounting) Regjit Singh was called to testify.

“With this, the defence trial, which ran for 33 days since Dec 3 last year, ends today,” he added.
