Datuk Seri Najib Razak will file an application to intervene in former police commando Azilah Hadri's review application to set aside his 2015 conviction for the murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu.

Lawyer Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, representing the former prime minister, said that his client has a "direct interest" in the matter.

Shafee was speaking to reporters after the case management for the review application at the Federal Court before Deputy Registrar Azniza Mohd Ali on Tuesday (Dec 17).
