Thomas said Sri Ram, a former Federal Court judge, enjoyed all powers of the public prosecutor as his appointment was made under Section 376(3) of the Criminal Procedure Code. Thomas noted in the affidavit that Rosmah's husband, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, had also challenged Sri Ram's appointment at all levels, including the Federal Court, and failed. Thomas said he had asked Sri Ram to prosecute the cases, and that no letter was necessary for his appointment. They said the letter cannot be used for the prosecution over Rosmah's case as Sri Ram was only appointed a senior DPP for cases involving 1MDB. Thomas said Sri Ram could not appear in the trials without the sanction of a public prosecutor and that he was appointed as a matter of fact and law.
