Shafee rubbishes claims of special treatment for Najib

PETALING JAYA: Datuk Seri Najib Razak is not receiving special treatment in prison, says his lawyer.

Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah rubbished allegations that the former premier was given the codename “merpati” (pigeon) as a prisoner and that he was given special treatment.24-09- 2022 05:12 PM PETALING JAYA : Former prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has reiterated his criticism towards Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob for allegedly failing to address the economic slide being experienced by the country.Source: Zahid Hamidi/FBPIX PETALING JAYA : Umno has denied issuing a statement nominating its president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi as its prime ministerial candidate.Source: BERNAMAPIX PETALING JAYA: DAP’s secretary-general Anthony Loke Siew Fook reminded Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob to choose a proper date and not fall to pressure from Umno chief Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Shafee said “merpati” could mean transsexual and that “bird” could mean a woman and not a man."What is ‘merpati’ and how can you say a man is a bird.He pointed out that the country’s overall household income has shrunk since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic.If I say he is a nice bird, won't he run away,” he said.Zahid is still facing 47 charges involving 12 counts of criminal breach of trust in relation to RM31mil of charity foundation Yayasan Akalbudi’s funds, 27 money laundering charges, and eight counts of graft over RM21.Shafee pointed out that Najib is not even given a specific room for his meals during breaks in court proceedings.Meanwhile, the M40 (middle 40%) household income group consists of less than 20% of the population while the T20 (top 20%) group has been reduced to no more than 10% of the nation’s people."If he is special, they don't even give him a room here to sit down and eat," MalayMail quoted him as saying when met at the court complex in Kuala Lumpur.We are not asking Ismail to dissolve (parliament), but we need to prioritise the people,” said Loke.

He dismissed the notion that Najib was given a first class ward at Hospital Kuala Lumpur or the Cheras Rehabilitation Hospital (HRC), saying it was only a standard room.“I’m not trying to teach anyone but take it as a matter of great importance,” he reportedly said this in a speech during an event celebrating Bersatu’s anniversary today.."I myself had a better room when I was at the National Heart Institute."Maybe because of his ulcer, he gets food which is not spicy or oily and outside food is not allowed due to the need to monitor his diet in relation to his health condition..Shafee said while Najib's blood pressure has returned to the normal range, the former prime minister has lost weight and suffers from stomach ulcer and knee problems.Najib was referred to HRC for further treatment and monitoring by HKL on Monday (Sept 19).

On Sept 23, the HRC gave Najib a clean bill of health and sent him back to Kajang prison.He is serving a 12-year sentence in Kajang Prison following the Federal Court's decision on Aug 23 to uphold his corruption conviction involving RM42mil of SRC International funds.Article type: free.
