So, the High Court judge sentenced Najib to 12 years jail and over RM200 million fine.
He said the defence had failed to raise reasonable doubt to the prosecution case.
I did follow the case and held a different view, but who am I to dispute the learned judge's opinion.
It may even be a contempt of court if I try to do that.
Then again, Najib will appeal his case to the Court of Appeal and it may even goes to the apex Federal Court.
In Court of Appeal, there will be a penal of three judges who are more learned than that single High Court judge.
In the Federal Court there will be a penal of seven even more learned judges than the three Court of Appeal and single High Court judges.
Lets see what will happen there.
Till then, I think everybody should remain calm.
Pakatan people should not be too cocky yet while Umno people, especially Najib's supporters should not be too sad or angry.
The fight is far from over, okay.
Well, politically, I think the court's decision today is not really good for the Muhyiddin's government.
I think Najib's supporters in Umno may likely feel that Muhyiddin is somehow responsible for what happened in court today.
It's the same as how Anwar's supporters felt when their idol was sent to jail for abuse of power and sodomy.
I believe Umno people who support Najib will want their party not to support Muhyiddin anymore because they would believe that Muhyiddin is actually the one behind the court's decision.
With its super thin majority in parliament, Muhyiddin's government may not survive if the Umno groundswell is so great that its leadership succumbed to pressure and pull out of the informal Perikatan Nasional coalition.
I believe the Najib supporters wouldn't even care if Muhyiddin turns around and rejoins Pakatan Harapan to form another government.
They would prefer to bid their time till the next general election.
If things get so bad, Muhyiddin may even be forced to call for a fresh poll as early as later this year.
Umno leaders who became ministers and GLC bosses may want to stick around with the Muhyiddin's government but Umno MPs who support Najib may cause a lot of problem to the effect that a fresh election would need to be called.
For instance, they may vote against the budget to be tabled later this year.
I don't think the Umno leadership can force them to vote otherwise. It would be politically suicidal for them to do that.
Hopefully, it wouldn't come to that but I believe Najib has enough supporters among the Umno MPs to pull off such a stunt if they choose to do that.
Personally, I don't mind a fresh election.
Settle the whole nonsense once and for all.
After all, we do need a strong government now to recover from the Covid-19 crisis.
