KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 13, 2014:In a bid to remove lawyer Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah as the deputy public prosecutor (DPP) in Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s Sodomy 2 case, PKR has lodged a police report against Attorney-General Tan Sri Gani Patail, who appointed Shafee. The report was lodged by PKR supreme council members Fariz Musa and Manivanan Gowin based on evidence that Shafee had affirmed two affidavits last December in which the contents were inaccurate and false. Shafee had filed the affidavits in response to Anwar’s second application to disqualify Shafee from representing the DPP. Former Kuala Lumpur CID chief Datuk Mat Zain Ibrahim had later lodged three police reports to question the affidavits, and a deputy public prosecutor issued an order to investigate (OTI) the affidavits following the reports made. Showing reporters here a copy of the OTI, which was dated Jan 3, 2014, Fariz said it was concealed from the court until after March 7, the date Anwar was given a five-year sentence by the Court of Appeal. He added that it wasn’t until May 19 that the OTI resurfaced, when Mat Zain was called by police to record his statement on Shafee’s affidavits. “The question here is since we know the OTI was issued in January, why wasn’t an investigation done then? “Maybe then Shafee wouldn’t have been the DPP and maybe Anwar Ibrahim wouldn’t have been sentenced for five years,” said Manivanan. He added that the entire issue seemed like a cover-up of the truth. Questioning the A-G’s appointment of Shafee, PKR also wants the A-G Chambers to explain why the issue was not brought to the court’s attention when Anwar was sentenced in March.
