PUTRAJAYA: Former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak expressed his disappointment with the Federal Court’s decision to reject his bid to adduce fresh evidence relating to trial judge Nazlan Ghazali’s past employment with a bank.

“I am shocked and bitterly disappointed with the decision of the judges not to allow me to adduce additional evidence,” he said after court proceedings.

Lead counsel Hisyam Teh Poh Teik was similarly disheartened by the outcome of the case.

We had presented a strong case both in law and on the facts, he said.

“Unfortunately, the court did not appreciate our arguments,” he said.

Hisyam said the former Prime Minister’s legal team will have to decide on the next course of action before court proceedings resume on Thursday.
