He reasoned that it was because he had allegedly been in close contact with a Covid-19 case, along with a few members on his legal team.

He asked for another hearing held yesterday to be postponed as well.

The Malaysia court was originally set to hear his application on 7 December to adduce new evidence being presented as the former prime minister appealed against his conviction in the RM42 million SRC International case.

The 8 December hearing was supposed to see Najib receiving the verdict for his appeal.

The Court of Appeal judge Abdul Karim Abdul Jalil said that “this is not a coffee shop, this is the court of law”.

His application to postpone the hearing was rejected and was directed to be held via a Zoom conference call instead.
