PETALING JAYA: Claiming miscarriage of justice, Datuk Seri Najib Razak has filed for a review of the Federal Court’s decision to uphold his conviction and sentences in the SRC International Sdn Bhd case.

The former prime minister's daughter Nooryana Najwa said her father's team of lawyers filed for the review of the decision based on "miscarriage of justice" and Najib's right to counsel, among other issues.

The motion for the review was said to have been filed by his lawyer Tan Sri Shafee Abdullah on Tuesday based on a close source to Najib.

“The motion for a review states that a miscarriage of justice has taken place and that Najib’s right to defend himself at the Federal Court has been denied,” said the source.

On Aug 23, the Federal Court upheld the Kuala Lumpur High Court's decision to convict Najib to 12 years’ jail and fine of RM210mil.

Najib is currently serving his sentence at the Kajang Prison.
