KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 23): The prosecution in ex-prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak's (pictured) SRC International Sdn Bhd case had not filed its petition of appeal against the High Court's sentencing within the specified 10-day duration after the record of appeal was filed on Sept 10, 2020, a source familiar with matter told theedgemarkets.com today.
The source said the 10-day duration to file the petition of appeal had lapsed.
“The prosecution without filing the petition of appeal, means its appeal on the sentence is now done and dusted already," the source claimed.
On July 28, 2020, it was reported that the High Court had on that day found Najib guilty for abuse of power and misappropriating over RM42 million from 1Malaysia Development Bhd’s (1MDB) former subsidiary SRC.
It was reported that Najib was fined RM210 million and sentenced to 12 years in prison by Justice Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali.
At the time of writing this report, the Attorney General's Chambers of Malaysia could not be immediately reached for comment on the matter.
