Welcome to our bi-weekly podcast where we aim to empower people to express themselves through speech! In each episode, we will seek to speak about ways to better verbalize ourselves and our stories. We will also have topical interview sessions with special guests and share select speaking tips, useful for the casual and competitive speaker.
Episode 11 is joined by Deputy Public Prosecutor for the Attorney General’s Chambers, Izzat Fauzan! Former criminal lawyer, Izzat now dedicates his time representing victims and prosecuting wrongdoers. Izzat was part of several high-profile prosecution teams like Najib Razak’s SRC trial which saw our former Prime Minister sentenced to 12 years in prison for abuse of power, money laundering, and breach of trust. He was also part of the prosecution team behind the tragic murder of Datuk Anthony Kevin Morais and the freezing of 1MDB-linked funds, USD$340 million, belonging to PetroSaudi International Ltd.
In this episode, we talked about what it takes to represent the state as well as those who have been wronged under the law. In fulfilling his duties, we discussed how to balance objectivity and emotional attachment, how to extract and present information, how to tune out negative externalities in the process, and how to deal with unexpected issues in court. Izzat speaks passionately about his purpose, his loyalty to the law, and the sacrifices he’s made on the job. This is definitely a conversation not to be missed!
