Najib’s application for gag order on media dismissed

The Kuala Lumpur High Court on Friday dismissed an application by former premier Datuk Seri Najib Razak for a gag order on the media, prohibiting it from discussing the merits of the criminal cases against him. In his decision, Justice Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali said the application was unsustainable as there are existing laws available.
Najib’s lead counsel Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah said the defence would be filing an appeal on Monday.
The High Court also fixed Feb 12 to Feb 28 and March 4 to March 29, 2019 for Najib’s trial for criminal breach of trust, power abuse, and money-laundering cases.
