PETALING JAYA: Datuk Seri Najib Razak's daughter Nooryana Najwa says that doctors found multiple new ulcers in his stomach after a scope on Saturday (Sept 10).
In an Instagram post Monday (Sept 12), she said that the former prime minister had been admitted to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL) for a medical procedure involving a scope on Saturday.
She said the doctor found multiple new ulcers in his stomach during the procedure.
"During the scope, the doctors at HKL also did a biopsy which led to some bleeding and the ulcer had to be clipped to stop the bleeding.
"Daddy requested for observation at HKL but was denied, the doctor discharged him and today Daddy attended court.
"The doctors also changed his medication from the usual that he had been taking for years and sent him back to Kajang," she wrote in her post.
This morning, Nooryana said a test showed that Najib's blood pressure was dangerously high, which could have been caused by the change in the medication.
"This led to the deputy public prosecutor telling the judge this morning that Daddy's health is not in good condition and he will need to be sent to the hospital.
"On humanitarian grounds, our family pleads with the prison authority, the hospital and the government to do the right thing and allow for dad to receive proper medical care and observation," she said.
Earlier, Justice Collin Lawrence Sequerah agreed to adjourn the former premier's 1MDB trial at 12.30pm this afternoon to allow Najib to seek medical attention after Senior Deputy Public Prosecutor Datuk Seri Gopal Sri Ram brought the matter to the court's attention.
"The accused's medicine for blood pressure has changed.
"It had an adverse effect on him and his condition is quite bad," Sri Ram said.
Najib was present during the proceedings here on Monday.
The prosecutor said that Najib, however, was prepared to go through the proceedings until 12.30pm.
"By 2pm, he has to see a doctor," Sri Ram had told the court.
