On Dec 8, 2021, the Court of Appeal upheld Najib Razak’s conviction and the 12-year jail sentence and RM210 million fine for misappropriating RM42 million belonging to SRC International.PUTRAJAYA: Former prime minister Najib Razak will be filing an appeal petition to set aside his conviction in the misappropriation of RM42 million of SRC International Sdn Bhd funds at the Federal Court today.
This followed a unanimous decision by the apex court’s three-member panel, led by Chief Judge of Sabah and Sarawak Abang Iskandar Abang Hashim, in allowing Najib’s application for an extension of time no later than today (April 25) to file the appeal petition.
The other judges on the bench were Federal Court judges Nallini Pathmanathan and Mary Lim.
The matter was confirmed by deputy public prosecutor Ashrof Adrin Kamarul after the online hearing of the application.
“For the application (by Najib) for the extension of time to file the petition of appeal today, the unanimous decision (is given) by the Federal Court to grant the extension from April 11.
“The applicant (Najib) is to file the petition of appeal for the SRC main appeal by today, April 25,” Ashrof told reporters after the hearing.
On April 11, the Pekan MP, through Messrs Shafee & Co, applied for an extension of time no later than April 25 to file the appeal petition.
According to his supporting affidavit, Najib said the grounds of the judgment prepared by the judges of the appeals court contained 176 volumes in total and the defence only received them on March 31.
“It is impossible for my defence team to study all the records of appeals and prepare a complete appeal petition in such a short time to address all issues raised by the Court of Appeal judges.
“The grounds of judgment should be scrutinised by examining the notes of the proceedings at both stages of the proceedings to ensure accuracy in the findings, inferences made and applicable laws,” said the Pekan MP.
