Najib arrives at court for SRC trial, with little fanfare

KUALA LUMPUR,. Dressed in a light grey suit with a matching striped tie, Datuk Seri Najib Razak arrived at the court complex here at about 8.45am today for the third day of his trial on the SRC International Sdn Bhd case.

He walked up the stairs to the courthouse lobby accompanied by a handful of aides to the clicking sounds from press cameras.

Like yesterday, he carried two books in hand, the titles which were obscured by his hand.

And like yesterday, most of the sympathisers and supporters that had turned up for his charging last year were notably absent, bar one, a man who wore a bandanna covering the lower half of his face.

The former prime minister paused his walk to greet the bandanna-wearing man and exchange a few words.

Najib’s lead defence counsel Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah arrived alone minutes later. Wearing a dark blue suit, he headed straight into the courthouse, his ear glued to his phone.

The lawyer told reporters yesterday that he will spend today cross-examining the prosecution’s second witness, Bank Negara Malaysia officer Azizul Adzani Abdul Ghafar.

Najib’s trial involves seven charges over RM42 million of SRC International, former subsidiary of 1Malaysia Development Berhad.
