Images and videos shared by mostly the press on social media spotted a large mob assembled at the court’s steps and surrounding areas, along with law enforcement authorities keeping an eye on the scene.

Also spotted were public health authorities who were said to be there to maintain Covid-19 SOP and safety.

Many of the people in attendance were believed to be fans of Najib as they sported t-shirts and even carried signs in support of the man they affectionately call “Bossku” assumingly in hopes that his appeal goes well.

“He’s a son of a nobleman, not a robber, not a bandit!” one lady was heard screaming in a video, praying for justice to prevail.
