Many social media users showed their creative side in reacting to the Federal Court’s affirmation of former prime minister Najib Razak’s conviction and sentence in the SRC International case.
Many took to Twitter and Facebook to praise the apex court’s decision, while others posted memes and photoshopped images of Najib behind bars.
“Najib: Game over,” said Twitter user @littledaisy_77.
Many Najib detractors also “ushered” him to Sungai Buloh. “Kedalam la awak @NajibRazak,” said Twitter user @nasuhajua, while another user with the handle @dauspacito said: “Najib to Sg Buloh, here we go!”.
Many users said that the decision was akin to a Merdeka gift.
Netizens such as Twitter user @Tuahseven7 poked fun at Najib’s potential activities in Sungai Buloh prison.
However, Najib’s supporters questioned the Federal Court’s decision.
Twitter user @HakeemBahari said Malaysia’s justice system was not transparent and that Najib was a victim of slander.
“Hidup Najib,” he added.
Facebook user, Takdir Yg Terindah, urged Najib to be patient and that Allah was with him.
“We will continue your fight and all your good deeds will be remembered,” he said.
Earlier, the Federal Court upheld Najib’s conviction and sentence in the SRC International trial. Najib, who was convicted on charges of abuse of power, criminal breach of trust and money laundering will now serve 12 years in jail and pay a RM210 million fine.
With the decision, Najib will be the first former prime minister in the country’s history to be jailed. – FMT
