KUALA LUMPUR: An online petition on Change.org has been launched asking the government to revoke former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s privileges to be revoked.

This came after the Court of Appeal found that the High Court was correct to find Najib guilty for all charges involving corruption over the SRC International funds.

Najib was convicted with seven counts money embezzlement amounting to RM42 million with a sentence of 12 years imprisonment and a fine of RM210 million.

The petition which was started by Mohd Ashraf Mustaqim Badrul Munir yesterday has as of 2pm today garnered almost 10,000 signatures.


“We Malaysians demand that all the privileges enjoyed by Najib must be withdrawn such as salaries, allowances, pensions, escorts, bodyguards, assistants and so on that are paid with the people's money.

“All ranks and medals must also be revoked because, as the judge said, Najib's actions; A SHAME ON THE COUNTRY!” the petition stated.


The petition also mentioned a request to the Malaysian Government led by the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong, the Council of Rulers and the National Palace to urge the Attorney General's Chambers to act decisively in this matter.

This, it said, is so that the dignity of the country can be upheld on the core of the Constitution and Rukun Negara Malaysia.
