KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 27, 2016:
While the Attorney-General (A-G) has made the decision that there is no wrongdoing involving the RM2.6 billion donation to Datuk Seri Najib Razak, it is hard to say whether this means the end of the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) issue, says Gua Musang Member of Parliament Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah.
When asked on the matter by reporters in Parliament today, he said, “it is hard to say because the PAC report is not yet tabled in Parliament. So this will go on.”
On the A-G having cleared Najib of any element of wrongdoing, he said a decision had been made, hence the matter should be left at that.
“That is the process of law. If the A-G makes a decision that there is no case in the matter brought to his consideration, then there is no case,” he said.
Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali yesterday cleared Najib of any wrongdoing involving SRC International issues and the RM2.6 billion in donation.
Commenting on the fact that the public were still unconvinced despite the decision, Tengku Razaleigh, more fondly known as Ku Li, said in the public’s eye, the matter was undoubtedly different, but the fact remained that there was no longer a case.
“Up to now, the answers satisfy the present situation because there’s no case to answer. Legally, that is the position.
“But in the court of public opinion, probably things are different,” he said briefly.
