The Attorney-General's Chambers (AGC) and two others want the Federal Court to determine whether former premier Najib Abdul Razak and his lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah’s second legal bid to oust Gopal Sri Ram from prosecuting the duo’s criminal cases amounts to an abuse of legal process and therefore is “doomed to fail”.

These are among the five questions of law that the AGC, former federal court judge Sri Ram and the government intend to submit to the Federal Court on Oct 15 in their application for leave to appeal against Najib and Shafee’s judicial review bid to disqualify Sri Ram as DPP.
