Senior lawyer Shafee Abdullah, representing Najib Razak in his abuse of power and criminal breach of trust case, defended the interim gag order he had obtained from the High Court today.
He said the gag order was to preserve the “integrity” of the criminal cases from public comments against Najib before the trial began.
“The primary aim is to stop anyone from making statements in the media that are seen as unfair to Najib.
“Statements like ‘Najib is guilty’ or even ‘Najib is innocent’ must not be made,” he said, after accompanying Najib to post bail for his four charges.
