KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 27, 2016:
Tabling the Attorney-General Chambers’s decisions to an Operation Evaluation Panel (PPO) is a normal procedure, says the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).
Its Strategic Communications Director Datuk Rohaizad Yaakob explained that referring a case to the panel when the A-G had decided not to prosecute a case was a procedure that was within the provisions in managing a case that had been closed.
“Therefore the action to refer the Prime Minister’s case to the panel is a normal process and should not be interpreted as rejecting the decision made by the Attorney-General,” he said in a statement today.
Yesterday, Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali had cleared Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak of any wrongdoing in relation to the RM2.6 billion donation deposited into his personal account and the 1Malaysia Development Berhad-linked company SRC International.
Rohaizad added the MACC had stressed that any statement made by any individual was not its official stance.
