KUALA LUMPUR (Feb 11): Former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s trial linked to SRC International Sdn Bhd has been postponed.

According to report from Sin Chew Daily, the Court of Appeal allowed Najib’s application for a stay of his trial that was due to start tomorrow at the Kuala Lumpur High Court.

The decision came after Court of Appeal’s three-member panel, comprising Datuk Ahmadi Asnawi, Datuk Mohamad Zabidin Mohd Diah and Datuk Yew Jen Kie, called for a 30-minute stand down, subsequent to hearing arguments presented by the prosecution and the defence.

The seven charges — three counts of money-laundering, three counts of criminal breach of trust and one count of power abuse — relate to over RM42 million of funds belonging to SRC International, a unit of 1 Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB). theedgemarkets.com
