AG under fire for failing to secure conviction in yet another high-profile case


After yet another big failure in court, calls for the removal of the Attorney General are getting louder.

DAP strategist Liew Chin Tong (pic) said Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail should step down for consistently failing to bring culprits to book in many high-profile cases. In the latest failure, the AG failed to prove his case against former transport minister Tun Dr Ling Liong Sik in the PKFZ scandal. “It is most unjust that the PKFZ has turned out to be yet another scandal without a criminal,” he said today.

Another lawmaker said that there were many reasons why Gani should resign apart this loss. Mohamed Hanipa Maidin (PAS-Sepang) said that the poor drafting of recent laws passed in Parliament is another reason why Gani should make way for new blood. (more…)

Attorney General draws flak for saying Allah decision only applies to Herald

Attorney General Abdul Gani Patail says the Herald is accessible to Muslims, which is why it is banned from using the word Allah.V. ANBALAGAN AND LEE SHI-IAN

Attorney General Abdul Gani Patail says the Herald is accessible to Muslims, which is why it is banned from using the word Allah. Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail’s explanation that the recent court decision on the Allah issue only applied to Catholic weekly Herald has drawn criticism from two DAP lawmakers.

Veteran lawyer Karpal Singh told Abdul Gani to go back to law school to interpret the Court of Appeal’s verdict.

“Abdul Gani is holding the wrong end of the stick and is completely off the mark in the statement he issued yesterday. Even a first year law student knows the principle which has been established in this case,” Karpal told The Malaysian Insider. (more…)

PM and AG using Sabah RCI to suppress the truth?

Hafiz Yatim

Is the present royal commission of inquiry (RCI) in Sabah a whitewash and a “sandiwara” exercise by Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak and attorney-general (AG) Abdul Gani Patail?

Former Kuala Lumpur CID chief Mat Zain Ibrahim posed this question, asking if the duo were trying in fact to suppress the truth in the saga of foreigners being given identity cards to enable them to vote.

He pointed out that none of the RCI’s eight terms of reference are directed to identify those who are allegedly responsible for this treacherous act to the country or for the RCI to propose any actions to be taken on those responsible. (more…)

From Musa's RM40mil to Nazri's Hummer, BN hums a CONFUSED TUNE


The United Malays National Organization, Malaysia’s biggest ethnic political party, has found itself embroiled in yet another politically debilitating scandal, leaving the de facto law minister trying to explain why his son was driving around in an expensive SUV owned by a man whom the minister had just cleared of money laundering.

The affair began several months ago when Sarawak Report, a London-based NGO, alleged that in 2008 an international web of bank accounts controlled by a Kota Kinabalu timber trader named Michael Chia was funneling tens of millions of dollars into the UBS personal bank account of Sabah Chief Minister Musa Aman.
