Media gag order unnecessary, says Rewcastle-Brown on Najib trial

Briana Leong

THERE’S no need for a gag order on the media over Najib Razak’s graft case as the judge will know better, Sarawak Report founder and editor Clare Rewcastle-Brown said today.

Rewcastle-Brown, who was at the Jalan Duta court complex in Kuala Lumpur today, told reporters that the judge would know how to stay above news coverage of the former prime minister, who faces a total of seven charges related to SRC International Sdn Bhd, a former subsidiary of 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB).
