PETALING JAYA: "Bossku does not end here" - these were the words mentioned by former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s daughter Nooryana Najwa after the Federal Court dismissed her father's appeal to quash his conviction and sentence in the SRC International Sdn Bhd trial on Tuesday (Aug 23).
“Maybe we didn’t fight hard enough, maybe we placed our fullest trust in our justice system and maybe we too believed whole-heartedly in our cause and purpose so we stood defiantly these four years,” said Nooryana.
"Yet you did not get your day of justice today and we did not stand a fighting chance," she added in an Instagram post following the decision of the Federal Court.
“I promise to you that Mummy, Ashman, Abang Jaja, me, the family and your people will never rest until you are safely back with us and justice is served. We are so proud of your strength. Bossku does not end here,” she added.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Federal Court affirmed Najib’s conviction and sentence in the SRC International case.
This means that the Pekan MP is set to begin serving his jail term immediately.
On July 28, 2020, Justice Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali (now a Court of Appeal judge) convicted and sentenced Najib on seven charges involving criminal breach of trust (CBT), money laundering and abuse of position involving SRC funds totalling RM42mil.
He was sentenced to 12 years' jail and a fine of RM210mil.
The conviction and sentence were upheld by the Court of Appeal.
Najib had filed 94 grounds on why the Court of Appeal had erred in its decision to uphold the High Court’s conviction and sentence.
