“Why did you sign it? Why did we not appeal to His Majesty to give us time to think?”

This was the reaction of convicted former prime minister Najib Razak after he heard the explanation from former 1MDB director Ismee Ismail on the postponement of a RM5bn bond issuance.

Ismee, the 13th prosecution witness, testified on 17 November 2021 that Najib appeared to really want the issuance to continue.

However, Ismee said it was a problem outside his jurisdiction, as he would not question the wish of the Sultan of Terengganu, Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin.
