Former premier, Najib Razak, is appealing his 2020 conviction for corruption, abuse of power and money laundering. When he dismissed his long-time lawyer, and appointed a new one, they requested a postponement of the appeal trial which was turned down. The judges said they were unwilling to make the court wait just because of a last-minute change in lawyers. The new lawyer then refused to make the opening statement at the trial, as a protest over the short time he had to prepare, effectively leaving Mr. Najib unrepresented. It is unclear what the outcome will be. Pray that the judges will have wisdom and refuse to take part in legal games. Pray that justice will be the outcome. Pray for a new beginning for Malaysian politics, that does not include corruption (The Bible, Galatians 6:8).
