KUALA LUMPUR: The prosecution in former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s trial of three money-laundering charges involving RM27mil of SRC International Sdn Bhd funds has served 26 documents containing more than 200 pages related to the trial to the defence team.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Budiman Lutfi Mohamed told the High Court during Najib’s case management that they had given the trial-related documents to Najib’s legal team yesterday.

Najib was represented by lawyer Syahirah Hanafiah.

Justice Mohamed Zaini Mazlan set April 7, 2020 for the next case management.

Budiman said the prosecution would call about 30 witnesses to take the stand in the trial, which was set to take place from June 2 to 25 next year.

“So far, we have handed over 26 documents containing more than 200 pages to the defence team,” he said.

On Feb 8 this year, Najib pleaded not guilty to the three additional charges of money laundering by receiving money totalling RM27mil, which was proceeds from unlawful activity, in three AmPrivate Banking accounts belonging to him. — Bernama
