THE Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) today dismissed as fake a viral message stating it had determined a mistrial in the SRC International Sdn Bhd case involving former prime minister Najib Razak.
It said in a statement that it is awaiting the outcome of Najib’s appeal to the Federal Court, which will begin hearing the case on August 15.
On December 8 last year, the Court of Appeal upheld Najib’s conviction and a 12-year jail sentence as well as a RM210 million fine for misappropriating RM42 million of SRC funds.
Judge Abdul Karim Abdul Jalil, who presided with judges Has Zanah Mehat and Vazeer Alam Mydin Meera, dismissed Najib’s appeal against the High Court’s decision on July 28, 2020.
The Federal Court will be the final avenue for the Pekan MP to appeal against his sentence and conviction in the SRC case. – Bernama, July 8, 2022.
