SRC review: Apex court denies Najib's bid in 4-1 verdict


Najib Abdul Razak will continue to serve his 12-year jail term in the RM42 million SRC International corruption case.

A five-person Federal Court bench chaired by Chief Judge of Sabah and Sarawak Abdul Rahman Sebli in a majority 4-1 verdict today denied the former prime minister's review application.

Abdul Rahman made up the sole dissenting ruling to allow the review.

The majority ruling was courtesy of the other bench members namely Federal Court judges Vernon Ong Lam Kiat, Rhodzariah Bujang and Nordin Hassan as well as Court of Appeal judge Abu Bakar Jais.

This verdict is in line with a previous decision on Aug 23 last year by a different Federal Court bench chaired by Chief Justice Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat to uphold Najib's guilty verdict as well as a 12-year jail sentence and RM210 million fine.
