KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 23 (MySinchew) -- The High Court today dismissed the appeal by PKR's MP for Pandan Rafizi Ramli and maintained his 18-month jail sentence for leaking the audit report on 1MDB.

However, the court allowed Rafizi's appeal against his conviction on the charge of possessing the audit report classified under the Official Secrets Act (OSA) by the government.

The court also granted his application for stay of execution on the jail sentence pending his final appeal.

Rafizi was sentenced to two concurrent 18 months in jail last November over two charges of possessing the 1MDB audit report and leaking its contents to the media.
