Trial of Najib’s SRC RM27m money laundering case starts September

KUALA LUMPUR – The High Court here has set five days in September to hear Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s (picture) three other charges of money laundering involving SRC International Sdn Bhd (SRC) funds amounting to RM27 million.

Judge Muniandy Kannyappan fixed the dates after deputy public prosecutor Mohd Ashrof Adrin Kamarul informed the court that the prosecution is still considering the representation sent by the former premier last August.

At the start of the proceedings, Mohd Ashrof informed the judge that the prosecution needed time to consider the representation, thus, he requested another date for case management.

“Due to circumstances, the prosecution cannot make decisions in representation sent by Shafee & Co. We humbly request for more time, My Lord,” said the prosecutor.

To this, Najib’s lead counsel said since the case has been hanging for many years, the court shall order acquittal and discharge of his client. – BERNAMA / pic TMR FILE
