Najib’s lawyers submit additional evidence allegedly withheld from defence

The alleged fresh evidence in the RM42 million SRC International corruption case was kept from Najib Abdul Razak, the apex court heard. The former prime minister’s lead defence counsel Hisyam Teh Poh Teik submitted that the evidence relating to trial judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali’s purported conflict of interest was not made available to them during the criminal trial. The lawyer pointed out that if not for the anonymous envelopes sent to Najib between May 9 and July 7 - allegedly containing the fresh evidence - then the defence team would not have been aware of its existence. Hisyam told the Federal Court that the former finance minister was at the time unaware of Nazlan’s alleged knowledge and involvement in the establishment of SRC through his (Nazlan) then position as general counsel of Maybank Investment.
