Ex-Perak MB Nizar apologises to Najib
The Changkat Jering assemblyman openly apologised to Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at the Sessions Court here before judge Ikmal Hishan Mohd Tajuddin on Wednesday.
"Based on the remark made against the Prime Minister, I realise it is baseless.
"Therefore, I sincerely apologise to him," he said in court. "I will be careful with my remarks and it will not recur," he added.
Deputy Public Prosecutor Yusaini Amer Abdul Karim said Nizar has also sent a letter to apologise to Najib on Oct 22.
He said Najib has accepted the letter and asked the case to be compounded with an open apology.
Nizar was alleged to have defamed Najib during a rally at Taman Desa Pakatan here on April 23. He was charged in January this year.
