High Court only indicated the possible dates to hold the trial.
The Kuala Lumpur High Court did not fix any trial dates for the trial of former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, said the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) in a statement yesterday.
According to the AGC, the High Court only indicated, based on the calendar of the High Court judge, the possible dates for the trial.
“The High Court made it clear that the trial dates would only be fixed after the next mention date in court which is Aug 8, 2018,” the statement said.
It pointed out that trial dates in “complex and document-heavy white-collar crimes” are rarely fixed on the date of the charge“, which represented the first appearance by the parties in court.
It added that the prosecution was not expected to serve documents on that day too.
“The relevant documents will be served on the defence before the commencement of trial. The prosecution team intends to apply to the High Court on Aug 8 for trial dates to be fixed in November this year,” the statement said.
