A donation campaign to fund former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s legal fees will be launched today (July 5).
The campaign, spearheaded by a group of Najib supporters, will be launched at his house at Langgak Duta, Kuala Lumpur, according to The Star.
All supporters of Najib can donate to the campaign, according to the group calling itself ‘Solidariti Bersama Datuk Najib’.
“We want to give moral and financial support to Datuk Seri Najib,” said its spokesman Datuk Mohd Razlan Mohamad Rafii, who was the former Federal Territories Umno Youth chief.
“We know that he has been charged and his bail has been set at RM1 million.
“However, Najib can only pay RM500,000 and to fund the balance, he has to surrender his house title deed as security.
“We therefore want to offer our moral and financial support to him,” Mohd Razlan was quoted saying.
Najib’s bail was set at RM1 million with two sureties. The court agreed for the bail payment to be in two instalments.
Najib left the court complex after paying RM500,000 on Wednesday. The remainder will be paid next Monday (July 9).
It is not known how much Najib will be paying in legal fees to his team of seven lawyers led by “hotshot” lawyer Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah.
