KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 26, 2015:
Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali reiterated that the late deputy public prosecutor, Anthony Kevin Morais, had never been involved in the 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) case.
In a report by The Star Online today, Mohamed Apandi was quoted as saying that Kevin was never involved in the 1MDB investigations.
“In fact, when he was transferred back to Attorney-General’s Chambers in early July 2014, there was no report in respect of 1MDB yet!” he said in a text message from Nanning, China, today.
This had been previously clarified by Mohamed Apandi in a media statement on Sept 7.
His remarks followed a statutory declaration made by Kevin’s younger brother, Charles Suresh Morais, on Wednesday.
The latter claimed he had some information on the murder of Anthony Kevin and that that the information in question was stored in a pen drive in the possession of an individual in the United States who had been instructed to make public its contents if anything untoward happened.
In dismissing the claims by Charles Suresh, Mohamed Apandi said the latter was seen as interfering in the pending trial by insinuating that the current accused persons were not linked to Kevin’s murder.
At the same time, the police would call up the brother, Charles Suresh, over a claim that he had some information on the murder of Anthony Kevin, according to Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar.
Khalid said he (Charles Suresh) could face prosecution for withholding information.
“If the brother really has some information, he should surrender it to the police for investigation. Withholding such information can be regarded as an offence.
“I suggest that he (Charles Suresh) share the information with the police so that action can be taken. The police will be unable to act without information on the late (Anthony) Kevin,” he said when contacted by Bernama last night.
The body of Anthony Kevin, 55, was found in a drum filled with concrete near Persiaran Subang Mewah in Subang Jaya on Sept 16 after he was reported missing on Sept 4.
He was last seen leaving his condominium in Menara Duta for work at the Attorney-General’s chambers in Putrajaya.
