‘Umno family’ still has your back, Zahid assures Najib

Umno will continue to back its former president Datuk Seri Najib Razak throughout the trials for other cases he is facing to ensure he receives justice and is not victimised by political pressure.

(The Vibes) – Party president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the “Umno family” had expressed its sadness at the end of Najib’s appeal at the Federal Court, yesterday.

“Umno feels very aggrieved that the process and space for the former prime minister to defend himself, especially the efforts to present new evidence and the delay to enable his new defence team to prepare, have been denied.

“For Umno, the decision of the Federal Court yesterday will not erase the great service of Najib as the prime minister who has brought Malaysia to the pinnacle of success and put the country on the world stage before it was blighted by the failure of two governments after the last general election,” he said in a statement today.
