On 28 July last year, the High Court Judge, Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali sentenced Najib to 12 years in prison and fined him RM210 million after finding the former Prime Minister guilty for seven counts of criminal breach of trust, money-laundering and power abuse.

Among Shafee’s argument included the attitude of High Court Judge, Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali, whom he questioned, has the urge to convict Najib in all charges.

The proceeding took place before a panel of three judges led by Datuk Abdul Karim Abdul Jalil, along with Datuk Has Zanah Mehat and Datuk Vazeer Alam Mydin Meera. -MalaysiaGazette
