Fahri Azzat, Lawyer
Considerable attention was paid to Dato Sri Najib Razak’s legal team - and their nationalities - before news broke that the former prime minister will be charged. Who are these lawyers and what are their motivations for accepting such a high profile client? Lawyer Fahri Azzat explains the predicament of lawyers who defend unpopular clients and why this is a necessary (and important) component of any criminal justice system.
