Najib Razak wanted to go to Parliament yesterday, Day 30 of his SRC International trial. His lawyers argued fiercely, saying that he had to fulfil his duty as an MP. But the judge didn’t allow it. Patrick Teoh of the Malaysian Insight presents.
The former prime minister didn’t let on in court, but during lunch, he took to Facebook to lament the no-win situation he felt he was in.
He said if he went to Parliament, he might face suspension. But if he didn’t, he would be accused of being a coward. Hence, he took to social media to air his opinions, where he said people were free to respond to him.
