TALK is rife within legal circles that the Attorney-General’s Chambers is on the cusp of adding another senior litigator from the private sector to its team for Najib Razak’s first corruption trial.

Sources told The Malaysian Insight that in addition to Sulaiman Abdullah, another senior lawyer is likely to be tapped to join the team to prosecute the former prime minister for allegedly pilfering RM89 million from SRC International Sdn Bhd, a former subsidiary of scandal-ridden 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

  • Do whatever you can. We want to see the Crook in orange outfit and behind bars asap. It would be a belated CNY for all.

  • Don't talk about the amount of time to get the case heard when you are incapable of even following standard operating procedure in getting the biggest crooks dressed in orange garb for their court appearances.
    Please provide a credible excuse for the double standards.

  • Public perception is that AG and Mahatir are paper tiger. They are afraid of Najib and his goons repelling all the charges and have no answer to tame the lanun if ever there is a mayhem created by his small band of supporters. They do not know how to move in on the lanun and keep on piling up charges hoping that one will stick.. Looks like another waste of effort and AG is seen as a sandiwara in the guise of buying time . Public sentiments and wagering on the Najib outcome are very very disturbing as at this juncture coffee shop talks are that Najib is actually a free man. With his free roaming and condemnation of PH looks like it is an affirmation of his status.

  • He should be put behind bars as his crime is non-bailable offence and why is there a double standard. I believe this is what most of the people want to see.
