IPOH – A Perak state assemblyman has lodged a police report against Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali for allegedly not carrying out his duties when he was the Attorney General.
“He did not appropriately execute his responsibilities in his capacity as the Attorney General, in the investigation involving SRC International and the RM2.6bil donation,” said Malim Nawar assemblyman Leong Cheok Keng, urging the police to investigate the former AG under sections 217 and/or 218 of the Penal Code.
Mohamed Apandi had said the probe into the case showed no evidence that the donation was an inducement or reward for Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to do (or not do) anything in relation to his job as the then prime minister, explained Leong.
He added that sections 217 and/or 218 of the Penal Code referred to a public servant who disobeyed the direction of law with intent to save a person from punishment or property from forfeiture, and/or framing an incorrect record or writing, with similar intent.
Leong said this to reporters after lodging the report, along with some DAP members including Keranji state assemblyman Chong Zhemin, at the Ipoh district police headquarters here on Monday (June 11).
He made the report in response to Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s statement that action could only be taken against Mohamed Apandi if a police report was made.
Meanwhile, Chong said an investigation was necessary to find out if the former AG had committed misconduct when he was in office.
“We hope that newly appointed Attorney General Tommy Thomas will act on the police report,” he said.
Ipoh district police chief ACP Mohd Ali Tamby, when contacted, confirmed receiving the report at about 10.30am. – BERNAMA
