PUTRAJAYA: Judge Abdul Karim Abdul Jalil is heading a three-member Court of Appeal bench to hear Najib Razak’s SRC International corruption appeal.

Also on the bench are Has Zanah Mehat and Vazeer Alam Mydin Meera.

The public and the legal fraternity had been waiting to know who would feature in this appeal.

The judges’ identities had not been revealed earlier although appeal records and grounds of judgments would have been handed to them for their perusal.

Court of Appeal president Rohana Yusuf, as the administrative head of the appellate court, is entrusted to empanel judges for all criminal and civil cases.

On July 28 last year, High Court judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali sentenced Najib to 12 years’ jail and ordered him to pay a RM210 million fine after finding him guilty on seven counts of abuse of power, criminal breach of trust and money laundering in relation to RM42 million belonging to SRC International Sdn Bhd.

Najib, who is the Pekan MP, is appealing against the conviction and sentence.

Nazlan allowed Najib’s application to stay the jail sentence and fine but the former prime minister was asked to post a RM2 million bail, which he did.

Shafee had earlier appeared in the appeal hearing against Najib’s conviction and jail sentence for misappropriation of RM42 million SRC International Sdn Bhd funds.

“Please use polite words like ‘erred in law’, ‘misdirected’ to show where he (Nazlan) had gone wrong.
