Kuala Lumpur: Former Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak has claimed that he was not given a fair trial over the RM42 million SRC international case, in which he was charged guilty.
Earlier, on 28 July, Kuala Lumpur High Court found him guilty of seven charges and sentenced him to 12-years jail time, along with an RM210 million fine against the accused.
Najib has filed a petition of appeal against his conviction and sentencing over one count of abuse of power, three counts of criminal breach of trust, and three counts of money laundering. However, he was permitted a stay order on the sentence, pending the accused’s appeal to the Court of Appeal.
The cause paper claimed that on a whole, Najib will submit that the errors by the High Court judge and the acts of the prosecution, which had denied the appellant’s right under the Federal constitution, caused serious injustice against him when he failed to get a trial that is fair and just representation.
