Former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has reportedly called for the removal of the documentary “Man On The Run” from Netflix. Directed, written, and produced by Cassius Michael Kim, the documentary delves into the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal, focusing on Jho Low. Released in October 2023, it includes an interview with Najib, who denies any involvement in the scandal.

In a press conference posted on Najib Razak’s Facebook page, his lawyer, Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, argued that the documentary is highly prejudicial to his client, especially considering the ongoing 1MDB trial. Shafee expressed concern over the potential impact on the trial and accused former Attorney General Tommy Thomas of making conclusions outside the court.

“The program is very subjudicial and in contempt of court. More seriously, former Attorney General Tommy Thomas also took part, making conclusions outside the court,” Shafee stated. He highlighted Clare Rewcastle’s statements in the documentary, mentioning the alleged misappropriation of US$681 million (RM3,160,521,000), without acknowledging the return of US$621 million (RM2,882,061,000) and other statements against Najib.

Shafee revealed plans to file an application for contempt of court proceedings against Clare Rewcastle-Brown and Tommy Thomas related to their statements in the documentary. Additionally, he intends to write letters to the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) and the Ministry of Home Affairs (KDN), urging them to take the documentary off the air.

As the legal drama unfolds, one can’t help but wonder about the broader implications of documentaries on ongoing trials and the delicate balance between free speech and legal proceedings. Stay tuned for more developments in this intriguing saga!
