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.
