Najib's defence team is expected to make an application to amend his motion to adduce fresh evidence, followed by the hearing of the motion itself.
The new team, headed by lead counsel Hisyam Teh Poh Teik, will also be making an oral application to stay the proceedings of the appeal proper, as it has been said before that they needed more time to go through the appeal records.
Najib is seen sitting at the public gallery while awaiting for the panel of judges to appear on the bench.
According to Bernama, Najib had arrived at the Palace of Justice at 9.10am on Monday in a black Mercedes.
A small group of Najib's supporters could also be seen waiting outside the Palace of Justice.
His son, Mohd Nizar, is also present.
Apart from Hisyam, lawyers on Najib's defence team are Datuk Zaid Ibrahim, Liew Teck Huat, Rueben Mathiaravanam and Hannah Kam.
Meanwhile, the prosecution is lead by ad hoc lead prosecutor Datuk V. Sithambaram, deputy public prosecutors Donald Joseph Franklin, Sulaiman Kho Kheng Fuei, Mohd Ashrof Adrin Kamarul and Manjira Vasudevan.
