Najib’s Last Attempt To Delay Federal Court From Process Next Month – Fires Shafee’s Lawyers & Appoints New Legal Team

Posted on

Former PM Najib Razak used to boast that he would never try to have his criminal case dismissed, but wanted to clear his name in court. His top lawyer, Shafee Abdullah, previously said that Najib wanted to be released through a court process. Of course, in reality, a serial liar knows that he is a criminal, but must act as if he is innocent.

Najib’s public relations team was paid millions to create a false narrative on social media that the former prime minister was innocent. They know Najib’s 1MDB scandal is too toxic and his trial too explosive to overturn. Therefore, they played a psychological game to trick the gullible villagers that Najib had no interest in dropping the case, when in fact it “couldn’t” be dropped.

The scandal involved a global investigation across three continents, where money was spent on high-end properties, luxury goods and luxury holidays and parties involving Najib, his family and partner Jho Low. The US-DOJ investigation said that more than $4.5 billion was misappropriated from the 1MDB fund, with some of the money used to buy private jets, super yachts, Picasso paintings, jewelry and real estate.

Therefore, it is not easy to stop Najib’s corruption and money laundering cases, even if Muhyiddin’s backdoor government wants to help him. The world, especially US authorities and foreign investors, watched with great interest. Behind the scenes, Najib secretly sent his intermediary to approach then PM Muhyiddin to interfere in the judicial process to influence his trial.

When Muhyiddin refused, not because he believed in judicial independence, but because Najib was a direct political threat to Muhyiddin, the disgraced Najib finally took steps to overthrow Muhyiddin by withdrawing support for Muhyiddin’s fragile backdoor regime. At that time, Najib had been sentenced to 12 years in prison and a fine of RM210 million by the High Court on 28 July 2020.

Since the shocking guilty verdict, Najib no longer honks his horn that he wants to clear his name in court. He was on the verge of tears when the three High Court judges upheld the High Court’s verdict on December 7, 2021. It was bad when the High Court found Najib guilty. It was even worse when the High Court not only agreed with the High Court, but also mocked Najib’s defense.

Najib’s most ridiculous lie – an Arab donation – has been debunked by the High Court. Judge Abdul Karim said the donation from the King of Saudi Arabia was “the potion”, as the defense failed to provide evidence to confirm that the RM42 million did indeed come from the Saudi royal family. Since the authenticity of the Arabic letters cannot be ascertained, the donation remains a rumor and cannot be accepted.

In fact, all the judges found the so-called letters from one Prince Saud Abdulaziz Al-Saud on behalf of the Saudi King to be so “falsified” that the letters clearly showed that they were fabrications. Worse still, the High Court also rejected Najib’s claim that he was acting in the national interest, a political propaganda crafted to deceive UMNO-Malay supporters, calling it a “national shame”.

As they say – three strikes and you’re out. Both the High Court and the High Court have given two warnings to Najib Razak. With all the evidence piled up against Najib, how likely is it that the Federal Court, the highest court and last court of appeals in the country, will deliver a shocking reverse verdict that Najib is innocent like a lamb?

Even if the Federal Court were infiltrated with pro-Najib corrupt judges, the verdict in Najib’s favor would be too obvious. The High Court has shown its full conviction that Najib is indeed guilty, so much so that no one thought the judges would dare to mock the criminal as a “national shame”. It would be very difficult for the Federal Court to overturn the four judges’ earlier decisions.

However, former prime minister Mahathir Mohamad has publicly revealed how the Federal Court could be manipulated to help Najib – with help from King Sultan Abdullah. Scraping the bottom of the barrel for a prison escape excuse, the king of Pahang, the state where Najib inherited the highest-ranking peerage as one of the “four heads”, may pardon the criminal if the final appeal is not unanimous.

Yes, after a unanimous decision by 4 senior judges (one High Court judge and three High Court judges) that former Prime Minister Najib Razak was guilty of corruption and money laundering, all it takes now is 1 in 5 Federal Court judges to disagree. The unanimous decision could move the corrupt government to approach the Palace to quickly forgive the crooked Najib.

Mahathir had every reason to launch a pre-emptive strike. A photo of the convicted criminal – Najib Razak – being invited to the Palace for a special dinner during Ramadan on April 18 has raised eyebrows over the real possibility that Agong (Raja), known for his close relationship with Najib, is poised to grant royal pardons to despicable criminals as part of power play among the Malay elite.

Not only was Najib invited to eat and drink wine with the King, the criminal sat at a high table with PM Ismail Sabri, who in turn sat next to the king. The message Raja Melayu is sending to the world is clear – every institution is corrupt after more than 60 years under one-party rule since independence in 1957. Worse, it sends the wrong message to the courts.

However, Chief Justice Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat – the first female Supreme Court Justice – presided over a panel of five judges to preside over the final appeal. And Najib, despite being armed with a battalion of expensive lawyers led by his top lawyer, Shafee Abdullah, was not at all confident of convincing the Federal Court during his 10-day appeal from August 15 to 26.

The defense team threw away practically everything, including the kitchen sink, before Judgment Day. The plan was to accuse High Court Judge Nazlan Mohd Ghazali, who found Najib guilty, of having a conflict of interest even though Nazlan’s previous work as General Counsel at Maybank was irrelevant to SRC International’s case against the former prime minister.

Not only is Nazlan’s work at Maybank publicly known, there is no evidence whatsoever that the judge was involved in the founding of SRC International Sdn Bhd, a 1MDB subsidiary that Najib used to enrich himself and his family. In addition, Najib and his legal hawk learned of Nazlan’s previous career at Maybank during the trial and never complained – until Najib was found guilty!

Najib’s desperation also led the world’s biggest criminal to try to appoint Britain’s Queen’s Counsel (QC) to argue in his final appeal. However, plans to intimidate Federal Court judges with English-language QG have been threatened after Tim Leissner’s trial. Leissner’s testimony has inflicted more damage than Najib would have wanted at this critical moment.

Leissner, former head of Goldman Sachs operations in Southeast Asia, has uncovered more dirty backroom and bedroom deals – sex, bribery and extortion – during his testimony in US federal court in the 1MDB trial against Roger Ng, Goldman’s head of investment banking in Malaysia. . . Mr Ng has received a RM35 million bribe to take part in a money laundering scheme.

While 52-year-old Leissner pleaded guilty in August 2018 to conspiring to violate US anti-bribery and money laundering laws, Ng pleaded not guilty to helping launder millions of dollars looted from Malaysia’s sovereign wealth fund 1MDB. Ng’s lawyer said he was a “fallen man” for one of the biggest financial scandals in Wall Street history, as Leissner testified as a government witness against Ng.

In April, Roger Ng was found guilty by a New York jury, making him face up to 30 years in prison. The verdict, which comes after an 8-week federal trial in the US, is not only delivered at lightning speed compared to Najib’s snail trial, but also directly implicates Najib Razak, his stepson Riza Aziz and his partner Jho Low. in the biggest heist stealing billions of dollars from 1MDB.

Mr Ng’s court revealed details of the new scheme – Jho Low stole US$1.42 billion (RM6 billion), Najib Razak also stole US$756 million (RM3.2 billion) while Riza Aziz pocketed US$238 million (RM1 billion). The US jury was also shown how 1MDB money was stolen to fund a $23 million pink diamond necklace for Najib’s wife, Rosmah Mansor.

About a week ago (July 21), the High Court rejected Queen Counsel Jonathan Laidlaw’s application to represent Najib in the final appeal, arguing that there were enough local lawyers who were more than capable of handling the former PM’s case. Everyone knows QC’s aim is not only to intimidate local judges, but also to delay the final appeal with all sorts of delays and retrials.

To make matters worse for Najib, former Attorney General Apandi Ali admitted on July 16 that he was involved in brokering a deal between fugitive Jho Low and the Malaysian government in early May this year. Jho Low apparently offered RM1.5 billion to settle the charges against him. The fact that Apandi, Najib’s appointee, helped Jho Low shows that Najib was truly at fault.

With the open disdain of the High Court, the independence of the first female Supreme Court Justice, Roger Ng’s damaging disclosures, the denial of the Queen’s Counsel’s request, and Apandi’s foolishness in representing Jho Low at such a crucial time, King Sultan Abdullah is sure to look extraordinary. the king is corrupt if he grants a royal pardon to Najib.

Desperate times require desperate action. In his latest attempt to delay the Federal Court from his trial next month, which is likely to see Najib’s spectacular imprisonment, the former prime minister has fired his lawyer Shafee and appointed a new legal team. Immediately after the appointment of the law firm Zaid Ibrahim Suffian TH Liew & Partners, new lawyers have asked for a delay.

Najib’s last-minute switch in defense was not only a disgusting delay tactic, but an insult to the justice system. The aim is to drag as long as possible so that the next 15th General Election can be held before the final decision of the Federal Court. If Najib’s UMNO political party can win big, he will either bully the court or bulldoze the King to free him.

Now, it makes sense why Zaid Ibrahim said he hopes the UMNO-led Barisan Nasional coalition wins the next election. Like the fake activist-lawyer “Art Harun” Azhar Azizan Harun, Zaid also wants to join a corrupt government. And the first step is to enjoy the free flow of projects and contracts is to ensure Najib Razak wins the final appeal.

At a time when an ordinary woman, Suhaini Mohd, was brave enough to face court without resorting to delaying tactics to steal two packs of Milo worth RM74, it is a shame that a Malaysian leader like Najib tried every trick to delay and hide. From calling his eyes hurt to his lawyer being bitten by his own dog, the world laughed at the UMNO-Malay leader.

The self-proclaimed Bugis warrior seems to be just a pathetic coward worse off than the mother of four who stole Milo to feed her children. While the woman was handcuffed and treated like a hardline criminal, Najib shamelessly walked around and pretended as if he was innocent – ​​with a police escort thrown in. If Najib is indeed innocent, why did he keep delaying his trial in the first place?
