All eyes on Najib’s case at apex court — timeline

ALL eyes are on former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Razak’s final appeal over the SRC International Sdn Bhd case, which resumes tomorrow following his lawyer’s refusal to make any defense submissions.
 
Last Friday, Najib’s lead counsel Hisyam Teh Poh Teik informed a five-member bench of the Federal Court, led by Chief Justice Tun Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat, that he would not even present oral submissions for Najib.
 
Tengku Maimun said the court would deal with the matter on Tuesday (Aug 23). The court had set Aug 23 to 26 to hear the appeal.
 
It is said that the apex court could immediately make a ruling even without submissions from Najib’s counsel. — by TMR
