No time off for lawyers in Najib's trials

The trials involving former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak are taking a lot of time out of the lives of those involved in it.

Najib's lawyer Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, who is the lead counsel in both the SRC International Sdn Bhd and the 1MDB trials, told reporters on Monday that many in his team had to bring home their work on the trials and also lacked sleep which may compromise their ability to do the best defence.
