Mr Nizam said Najib’s SRC case was just one of many cases of abuse of power, breach of trust and corruption which had yet to be exposed, investigated and judged.
“Today’s decision also proves that it’s clear that Malay political leadership should carry out a change in policy,” he said.
He added that GTA hoped that the federal court’s decisions had brought hope back to the people to continue to work to repair Malaysia for the better.
Chairman of PN Muhyiddin Yassin said that like other Malaysians who are consistent in the fight against corruption and the abuse of power, he could now breathe a sigh of relief following the Federal Court’s decision against the former prime minister.
In a Facebook post, Mr Muhyiddin said the decision shows that Malaysia’s independent judicial system can establish justice and restore the country’s honour.
He added that a free and independent judiciary is what he was fighting for as prime minister.
Mr Muhyiddin was prime minister from Mar 2020 to Aug 2021 when he led Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) to form a new government after the collapse of the PH administration.
There were not many reactions from the United Malays National Organisation, Najib’s political party.
However, Pontian MP and United Malays National Organisation (UMNO) Secretary-General Ahmad Maslan tweeted that Najib had reminded him to always be with the “rakyat” (people).
The former deputy finance minister also recalled on Twitter that while Najib was the son of a prime minister, he had appointed Mr Ahmad, a rubber tapper’s son, to be a deputy minister. Something which would not be forgotten, he said.
“This case will continue to be spoken of, the people are also judging. Hope his family and him (Najib) will stay strong,” Mr Ahmad tweeted.
