Courts applied their own logic against me – Najib

Courts applied their own logic against me – Najib

Former prime minister Najib Razak has submitted 94 grounds in his petition of appeal for why he should be freed of the charges of misappropriating RM42 million in funds belonging to SRC International Sdn Bhd.

Among the grounds mentioned in the petition is that the Court of Appeal had erred in fact or in law in affirming the High Court’s findings that the prosecution had proved a prima facie case against him on all seven charges, and in calling for his defence.
In the petition of appeal which was filed today through Messrs Shafee & Co, Najib, 68, claimed that he is aggrieved by the serious errors in fact and law made by both courts in their respective grounds of judgment as a whole.

He said the findings in the entire grounds of judgment by both the Court of Appeal and High Court show serious errors.

“The Court of Appeal had erred in fact or in law in affirming the High Court’s factual findings or inferences that are not fully proven and do not reflect the evidence comprehensively.

“Both courts erred in fact or law by failing to properly evaluate evidence and failing to recognise the differences between proven and unproven facts, and between inferences that might permissibly be drawn and mere conjecture based on suggestion, unsubstantiated allegations, conjecture, suspicion and hearsay,” his petition said.

Najib claimed that both courts had erred in making findings on the elements of all the charges by applying their own logic or rationale contrary to the oral or documentary evidence.

He said the errors of the two courts and the actions of the prosecution had denied him his constitutional rights which resulted in serious injustice to him when he failed to obtain a fair and equitable trial.

On April 11, Najib applied for an extension of time no later than April 25 (today) to file the petition of appeal to the Federal Court and the court today allowed his application.

On Dec 8, 2021, the Court of Appeal upheld Najib’s conviction and the 12-year jail sentence and the RM210 million fine for misappropriating RM42 million belonging to SRC International.

Judge Abdul Karim Abdul Jalil, who presided with Has Zanah Mehat and Vazeer Alam Mydin Meera unanimously dismissed Najib’s appeal against the High Court’s decision on July 28, 2020.

Najib then filed an appeal at the Federal Court. FMT
