Probably these two "New Evidence"
that can save Najib ...
I am reading the news reports about the Court of Appeal practically slamming the cell door on Najib's face. All rational thinking and honest people agree with the judgement. The vast majority of public opinion fully concurs with the decision by the Court of Appeal.
As Prosecutor Dato Sithambaram said 4 judges now concur that Najib is guilty - the High Court Judge Nazlan and the 3 very senior Court of Appeal judges.
The grounds of the judgement are really solid. Najib will be appealing the case to the Federal Court but I doubt the Federal Court will see anything different than what these FOUR judges have concurred. The Court of Appeal decision was unanimous among the three Judges. There were no dissenting opinions among the Judges.
However since Najib will be appealing to the Federal Court I thought there are a couple of new areas or "new evidence" that Najib may bring up which may just save his hide.
Before that may I advise Najib to get a new set of defense lawyers. Dia macam ni bang - sekarang hang sudah kalah dua round. Do you seriously want to maintain the same team and the same defense strategies that have lost twice? I told you before (many, many times) that your defense strategy was nonsensical.
Anyway firstly here is some write up on the learned Judges quite lengthy comments about the non-existent, fabricated story about the mysterious Arab donor. This is where I feel Najib may want to introduce some new evidence. First the news report:...
Najib RM42m Arab donation fabrication, the Court of Appeal said...
Judge Abdul Karim said no evidence money from / could have come from Saudi royal nor any reasonable basis for Najib to believe in that funds came from SRC and that is well established,”
Judge Karim said...
- defence said RM42m part of donation from Arab royal family since 2011
- letters tendered purportedly written by Prince Saud Abdulaziz Al-Saud
- However letter writer was not called
- authenticity of the Arab letters not established
- the Arab letters remain hearsay and inadmissible
- Najib’s belief funds were Arab donations was unbelievable
- “We, too, found this Arab donation defence untenable ” said Karim
- evidence clearly showed funds from SRC, ended in Najib’s personal accounts
- if personal donation from Saudi there is no reason money deposited into SRC
- fourth Arab letter clearly fabrication
- appellant could not honestly believe RM42m from Saudi royal family,” he added.
So obviously here is the new evidence that Najib can present to the Court. Just get Prince Saud Abdulaziz Al-Saud to come and testify. Problem is solved.
The Court of Appeal has said : However letter writer was not called . So just call Prince Saud Abdulaziz Al-Saud .
It was made known by Najib and gang that the Arabs donated US700 million (over RM2.8 billion) to Najib because of:...
- Malaysia's commitment in fighting terrorism
- Malaysia being a moderate Muslim country with a plural society
- also because of Datuk Seri Najib's anti-Jewish stance
- If Prince Saud Abdulaziz Al-Saud could donate RM2.8 billion because of all that, surely he can hop on a private plane (you know with the gold plated toilet seats) and fly to Kuala Lumpur and testify on behalf on Najib?
I mean Najib has been found guilty twice and has been sentenced to 12 years jail. If the Saudi Prince cannot help his good friend now (worth an RM2.8 billion donation) then bila lagi? Kawan dia sudah nak masuk penjara dah.
Now is the time for Prince Saud Abdulaziz Al-Saud to make an appearance and vouch for that RM2.8 billion donation to Najib. He was such a good friend to give you RM2.8 billion. Surely he should not just stand there and watch you go to jail for 12 years?
The second piece of "new evidence" that Najib can bring to Court is Zahid Hamidi's statement in public. Here is what Zahid Hamidi said in 2015 :
Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said he has met the wealthy Arab family who had donated the US$700 million (S$986 million) that was channelled into Prime Minister Najib Razak's personal account.
He said the "king and prince", whom he did not name, had donated the money because of Malaysia's commitment in fighting terrorism, and being a moderate Muslim country with a plural society. The family, he said, was impressed by how Malaysia, with its plural society, still managed to remain moderate without sidelining any other religions.
"Those were the answers given to me when I asked them the reason for their donation. They also told me that Malaysia was not the only country they have donated money to.
The Umno vice-president, elaborating during the Kepong Umno division meeting on Sunday, said the donors were an "Arab king and prince" and the family decided to make the huge donation also because of Datuk Seri Najib's anti-Jewish stance, reported the Malay Mail Online. So Zahid Hamidi said he has met the wealthy Arab family who had donated the US$700 million !!
This is the second piece of new evidence. Just get Zahid Hamidi to testify to this effect ie that Zahid has met the wealthy Arab family who donated that RM2.8 billion!! Case closed!
But sadly throughout the first trial as well as the Court of Appeal hearing Najib did not present either Prince Saud Abdulaziz Al-Saud or Zahid Hamidi to vouch that Zahid had indeed met the Arab donor. I agree I am not a lawyer but I believe that if Najib can produce both the Arab prince and Zahid Hamidi in his next round of appeals then he may overturn the case in his favour. - Syed Akbar Ali
Still no orange suit for the appellate! What reason does he have to refer issue to Federal Court ? Pray that the Federal court will give an early date so the Malaysia can rest in peace for awhile! - Billy the Kid
Why should he be allowed to make his appeal from outside prison when he already had the privilege to be running around and even have his passport returned when Anwar Ibrahim had to make his appeal from prison?? Where’s the justice?? - Simple Truth
The best part mentioned by the Court of Appeal Judge.. Quote: "Judge Karim says that Najib's action in relating to the RM4 billion loan to SRC was not for national interest but for personal benefit.The judge states this resulted in no national interest and rather a national embarrassment." Unquote. - Dr.Jangan Main2
As long as the convicted is allowed to roam free, enjoy his perks as an ex-PM, be able to make press statements and continue as a parliamentarian, dressed in designer wear, while enjoying life, he is a big liability to society at large. Till he is locked up behind bars with no other options left, the saga has not ended and MALU APA bossku will always be a national embarrassment we have to put up with. - Maya
Crux of the matter is UMNO became too dominant and powerful so it’s president treated the country’s wealth as his own so use it the way he saw fit. A blatant abuse of power to enrich himself. - JBond
