KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Azmin Ali (pic) and a businessman have obtained leave to initiate judicial review proceedings in order to declassify the audit report on 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB).

High Court (Appellate and Special Powers) judge Justice Hanipah Farikullah decided on the application for leave after hearing submissions by the parties in chambers on Wednesday.

In the first application for leave filed on Aug 5, last year, businessman Muhammad Zahid Md Arip, 50, sought to declassify the document, which is under the Official Secrets Act 1972.

In the second application, Selangor Mentri Besar and PKR deputy president Azmin Ali became the first MP seeking the same.
