Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah also said Sri Ram's appointment should have been made under Section 379 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CPC) first and not only under Section 376(3).
The date was fixed by Federal Court deputy registrar Rasidah Roslee during case management today.
Judicial Commissioner Ong Chee Kwan, who granted the extension, also fixed Nov 25 to hear the group’s sanction application to approve a scheme of arrangement.
“In his meeting with Najib, Shafee also informed the then prime minister that he needed RM9.5 million to purchase the Bukit Tunku home. Shafee told me that Najib had asked him (Shafee) to take the RM9.5 million first via two cheques of RM4.3 million and RM5.2 million. The RM9.5 million, Shafee said, was as a loan until Najib comes up with a rationalisation [for the payment],” said one of the witnesses.
