The High Court in Kuala Lumpur has denied Datuk Seri Najib Razak's request to skip a day in court to attend Parliament.

High Court judge Justice Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali refused the request after hearing an application from Najib's lead counsel, Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah and counter arguments from Attorney General Tommy Thomas, who objected it.

Earlier, Shafee had applied for an adjournment after Najib's trial involving abuse of SRC International Sdn Bhd funds resumed for the day on Monday.
