Can Najib seek judicial review of his conviction and sentence after submitting a pardon petition?

Can former Prime Minister, Najib Razak, seek a judicial review of his Federal Court appeal in the RM42 million SRC international corruption case after submitting a pardon petition?

Will Najib’s earlier pardon petition affect his subsequent action to seek a judicial review from a new apex court bench on the Federal Court’s rejection of his appeal and/or will the submission of a judicial review affect his earlier pardon petition?

With Najib’s two actions, these legal conundrums will have to be resolved by the relevant authorities.
