KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein hopes that his cousin former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak stays strong in the midst of his court cases.
"I pray that Najib and his family stay strong in such trying times," the Defence Minister told reporters at Wisma Pertahanan here on Wednesday (Aug 17).
Hishammuddin was asked to comment on Najib's final appeal in the RM42mil SRC International Sdn Bhd case where the hearing proper starts on Thursday (Aug 18).
This is after the Federal Court on Tuesday (Aug 16) turned down his application to adduce new evidence and to delay the hearing by three to four months.
Hishammuddin added that it was important that the legal process continues.
"I hope the process is being conducted fairly," he said.
