Former Malaysian PM Najib's corruption trial delayed at the last minute

Former Malaysian PM Najib's corruption trial delayed at the last minute
CNN:

Malaysians will have to wait a little longer for their trial of the century.

Disgraced former Prime Minister Najib Razak was due to appear in the dock Tuesday on multiple corruption charges related to the 1MDB financial scandal, but the country's Court of Appeal issued a last-minute stay Monday afternoon, his lawyer Shafee Abdullah told CNN.
Najib's defense team has filed multiple appeals over procedural issues in the run-up to the trial, and judges ruled that it should be delayed until one of them can be heard.
Tuesday's trial was on just a handful of the many charges facing Najib over the billions of dollars allegedly embezzled from the 1MDB fund. Other trials are scheduled for later this year, and the entire legal process could last months, if not years.
The delay will be seen as something of a victory for Najib, who has consistently maintained his innocence. Since the prosecution began, he has attempted to paint it as a political vendetta against him, led by his former mentor Mahathir Mohamad, who turfed him out of office in a shock election victory in 2018.
A date has not been set for the trial to resume and Najib's lawyer told CNN the appeal process could take weeks.
