Dr Mahathir: I'm shocked that Najib is shocked

Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad did not share former premier Najib Abdul Razak's sentiments over the ruling by Kuala Lumpur High Court for the latter to enter his defence on seven charges related to SRC International Sdn Bhd.

Najib's lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah had said the Pekan MP was shocked with the decision, and Mahathir, when quizzed about the matter at a press conference this evening, said: "He was shocked? I am shocked that he is shocked."

Mahathir also pointed out that Najib has been allowed bail, unlike individuals previously arrested for exposing the 1MDB scandal, including lawyer Matthias Chang and politician Khairuddin Abu Hassan.
