We respect King’s decision, says Umno on Najib’s reduced sentence

Umno pledges to continue efforts to seek justice for former prime minister Najib Razak within the country’s legal framework.

(FMT) – Umno says it respects the decision made by the former Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Al-Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah over Najib Razak’s commuted prison sentence and fine in the SRC International case.

“While we uphold the Federal Constitution, Umno is saddened by the decision,” it said in a statement.

“Umno will continue its efforts to seek justice for the party’s former president (Najib) in accordance with the country’s laws, and in line with the decision made at the last Umno general assembly to continue defending Najib.”

Yesterday, it was announced that Najib’s prison sentence in the SRC International case has been reduced from 12 years to six, while his fine was reduced from RM210 million to RM50 million.

The Federal Territories Pardons Board also said Najib will be released on Aug 23, 2028.
