Najib's RM27m SRC trial set for case management on July 27

KUALA LUMPUR (June 2): The High Court has fixed July 27 for the case management of Datuk Seri Najib Razak's (pictured) money laundering case involving RM27 million of SRC International Sdn Bhd funds.

Justice Mohamed Zaini Mazlan had previously decided that the trial would begin this month, although the dates initially set have been taken over by the other RM42 million SRC trial before Justice Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali and the 1MDB-Tanore trial before Justice Collin Lawrence Sequerah.

Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP) Muhammad Izzat Fauzan, on behalf of the prosecution, informed the judge that the RM27 million trial will have to be delayed in view of the other cases.

"We will set July 27 as the next date for case management," said the judge.

Also present was lawyer Syahirah Hanafiah on behalf of the accused.

At first, the prosecution in Najib's SRC case wanted the three money laundering charges involving RM27 million to be tried together with the former premier's seven other charges involving RM42 million in SRC, but the plan was changed due to a procedural issue.

Najib is alleged to have received the RM27 million at AmIslamic Bank Bhd's Jalan Raja Chulan branch on July 8, 2014.

SRC is a former subsidiary of the now-defunct 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) sovereign wealth fund.
