A Malaysian court on Monday temporarily stayed the hearing of a million-dollar corruption case against former Prime Minister Najib Razak, local media reports said.

Justice Ahmadi Asnawi, who chaired a three-member bench, said the court was satisfied with Najib's appeal to grant a stay on the trial.

The former premier is accused of transferring 42 million Malaysian ringgits ($14 million) from SRC International, a subsidiary company of state fund 1MDB, into his personal bank accounts.

No new date has been set for the hearing which was scheduled for tomorrow.

Tuesday's trial would have been the first of the three trials he is due to face on charges of money laundering.

Najib has pleaded not guilty to charges of criminal breach of trust, money laundering and abuse of power.

The prosecution has submitted over 3,000 pages of documents, including the minutes of meetings of SRC International and is calling 50 witnesses to testify during the entire trial./aa
