NAJIB 1MDB TRIALThe prosecution has objected to applications by Najib Abdul Razak and two others to inspect items seized during the government's 1MDB investigation, citing security issues as well as not setting a precedent for other money- laundering accused to seek similar inspections.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Fatnin Yusof submitted before the Kuala Lumpur High Court late this morning that the act of allowing such an inspection raises the issue of trying to ensure security in bringing in the seized items from a Bank Negara vault to be inspected by Najib, his wife Rosmah Mansor and their daughter Nooryana Najwa.
