KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 15 — The hearing for Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) corruption trial scheduled for this afternoon had to be postponed to allow him to deliver a speech in Parliament.
High Court judge Collin Lawrence Sequerah pointed out that he agreed yesterday to Najib’s request for the hearing to start at 2.30pm as the Pekan MP confirmed that he would deliver his remarks in the morning.
The judge then warned against any future repeat.
“Since circumstances are such that it cannot proceed this afternoon, let this be the last time such a situation happens,” he said after hearing from both Najib’s lawyer and the prosecution.
Najib’s lead defence lawyer Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah apologised to the judge earlier when informing the court that his client was unable to present himself at 2.30pm as scheduled.
