Court orders Najib and Zahid to file defence over RM2.6b suit

The High Court in Kuala Lumpur instructed Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak and his deputy Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to file their defence in Khairuddin Abu Hassan’s suit over violating their oaths of office.

The direction was made by High Court deputy registrar M Pavani following case management today.

Pavani also instructed Najib and Zahid to file their applications to strike out the suit, should they choose to do so, before Nov 10.

The case management will be heard before High Court judge Ahmad Zaidee Ibrahim on Nov 15.

Khairuddin was represented by Syed Iskandar Syed Jaafar Al Mahdzar, while the prime minister and his deputy were represented by Yazid Mustaqim.

Former Umno man Khairuddin filed the suit against Najib and Zahid last month for allegedly violating their constitutional oaths of office in relation to the origin of the US$681 million (RM2.6 billion) in Najib’s personal bank account.
