Former prime minister Najib Razak has raised 307 grounds in his petition of appeal over his conviction in the SRC International case.

Among the reasons raised are that the trial judge (Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali) had erred in his findings to call Najib to defend his abuse of power, criminal breach of trust and money laundering charges, as well as subsequently finding him guilty.

In his petition, Najib also claimed the judge had failed to consider his defence that Low Taek Jho, or Jho Low, had “deceived” him and “manipulated” his bank accounts.

“The court had erred in its findings that Jho Low, Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil (former SRC International CEO) and Azlin Alias (Najib’s then principle private secretary) were responsible to manage the prime minister’s accounts,” Najib said.


PUTRAJAYA: Former prime minister Najib Razak has raised 307 grounds in his petition of appeal over his conviction in the SRC International case.

Among the reasons raised are that the trial judge (Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali) had erred in his findings to call Najib to defend his abuse of power, criminal breach of trust and money laundering charges, as well as subsequently finding him guilty.




Nazlan had on July 28 sentenced Najib to 12 years in prison for abuse of power as well another 10 years in prison for criminal breach of trust and money laundering over SRC International’s RM42 million funds. The sentences were to run concurrently. The court also slapped a RM210 million fine on him.

In his petition, Najib also claimed the judge had failed to consider his defence that Low Taek Jho, or Jho Low, had “deceived” him and “manipulated” his bank accounts.

“The court had erred in its findings that Jho Low, Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil (former SRC International CEO) and Azlin Alias (Najib’s then principle private secretary) were responsible to manage the prime minister’s accounts,” Najib said.

He also contested Nazlan’s finding on the “donation letters”, where the court said Najib’s testimony that the money was a donation from King Abdullah was “self-serving”.

“The judge had erroneously concluded that the transfers of money between 2011 and 2013 were not from King Abdullah as the bank transactions did not show the late Saudi ruler’s name,” Najib said.

His lawyer Harvinderjit Singh said the petition of appeal was filed on Oct 19, after the Court of Appeal granted the legal team a 30-day extension in September to file the petition.

Under the court’s procedure, the defence has 10 days to file the petition of appeal after receiving the records of appeal.
