The Court of Appeal has allowed an application by Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to temporarily stay the hearing of his SRC International trial which is supposed to take place on Tuesday.

Justice Ahmadi Asnawi, who chaired a three-man panel said the court was satisfied that the former premier has shown special circumstances for the court to grant a stay on the trial.

The SRC International trial is stayed pending the disposal of Najib's appeal on the prosecution's withdrawal of the certificate of transfer.
