KUALA LUMPUR, July 1 — High Court Judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali today reminded the Former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak that he is facing serious criminal charges.
Mohd Nazlan and the high court then rejected Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s application to allow him to attend Dewan Rakyat (Parliament).
“Even though the accused is an MP, he is also an accused facing seven charges in this court. I therefore refuse the application for adjournment,” he said.
Najib’s lawyer, Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah earlier argued that his client must be in Parliament to do his duties.
“My client is an MP and he has a statutory duty to attend the Parliament session,” he argued.
Najib is currently on trial over seven charges of abuse of position, criminal breach of trust and money-laundering over RM42 million of SRC International’s funds.
