The Court of Appeal today affirmed the High Court's conviction against Najib in the SRC case.
I was not surprised at all as the court yesterday already dismissed Najib's application to produce new evidence and even refused to postpone the trial after his defence team was quarantined due to Covid.
Guess, Anwar's Sodomy Two trial will remain as Malaysia's longest as it's quite obvious that the court system now has less tolerance for postponements than back then during that trial.
Still, we cannot discuss the decision to uphold Najib's conviction as it could lead to contempt of court.
I believe action will be taken now against those who committed the offence unlike back then when people got away with openly badmouthing the judiciary when Anwar's conviction was upheld by the appellate courts.
Well, let's just wait for Najib's next stage of appeal at Federal Court.
Anyway, Najib still have tonnes of other charges against him and then there are those other Umno leaders facing their own multiple post-GE14 charges.
So lots of fun still for those who enjoy this kind of drama.
The way I see it, we are just becoming like other countries where previous leaders ended up in jail when they are no longer in power.
Just the other day the court in Myanmar sent Nobel Prize winner Aung Sang Sukyi to jail with multiple charges more, including corruption, waiting on the side.
Najib same level as Aung Sang Sukyi not so bad, isn't it?
Really, no big deal, okay.
I'm also quite sure now that this trend of former leaders ending up in jail will continue in this country.
My prediction is that BN people in government will soon push for the next general election to be held and looking at what happened in Melaka the other day, they are going to win it big time.
Once they are fully back in power they will dig into any wrongdoing done by their opponents after GE14 in 2018.
I'm quite sure they will find something that will stand in court.
Then we will have another round of fun watching a witch hunting session.
Heck, they may even dig way back into things that happened during Dr Mahathir's first administration just to get back at the handsome old man.
Yup, they will most likely chase after those who committed offences during Muhyiddin's administration too.
Well, just wait and see lah.
Oh, by the way, Guan Eng's corruption case is still underway and that one is fun to watch too.
