Cops begin investigations into leaked video snippets of Najib trial

PETALING JAYA: Police have begun investigations into the leaked video snippets on social media of former premier Datuk Seri Najib Razak's court case on SRC International.

Kuala Lumpur police chief Comm Datuk Seri Mazlan Lazim (pic) said the investigation was opened following a police report made at the Bt 9 Cheras police station.

"The matter is being investigated under Section 203A of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act," he said when contacted Saturday (April 20).

The less than three-minute clip, which can also be viewed on YouTube, shows a person who appears to be a lawyer cross-examining a witness on Najib's house renovation works, among other things.

Najib faces seven charges involving RM42mil belonging to SRC International.
