The trial of Malaysia’s former leader Najib Razak has been delayed indefinitely, after previously being set to start on Tuesday.

The trial will remain on hold pending an appeal from Najib, said his lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah. Najib was set to face seven of the 42 counts of corruption and embezzlement over his role in state fund 1MDB on Tuesday, before the Monday ruling by the Court of Appeals to delay the trial. He has pleaded not guilty to all the charges.
