Alleged Misconduct of Attorney-General and former Inspector General of Police must be investigated

by Hafiz Yatim (03-20-12)

Allegations of misconduct by Attorney-General Abdul Gani Patail and former Police Chief Musa Hassan should be probed because these ‘affect the integrity of agencies meting out justice’.

The least the government can do is form a parliamentary select committee to investigate the allegations, PKR Youth chief Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin told Malaysiakini. “We’ve seen the government being bold in charging (those) involved in the National Feedlot Corporation and by forming a parliamentary select committee,” said Shamsul Iskandar (right), who is a lawyer.

“I call on (Premier) Najib (Abdul Razak) to compel a probe of agencies implementing justice, including the allegations that Abdul Gani, Musa and the Anti-Corruption Agency having been used to fix people up.”

“How can the public trust them if such allegations remain unanswered? The question also remains whether Najib is committed to reform.”

Shamsul Iskandar said he is puzzled as to why the government has shot down the call for a tribunal to probe allegations by former Commercial Crime Investigation Department Director Ramli Yusuff and former Kuala Lumpur CID chief Mat Zain Ibrahim against Abdul Gani and Musa.

Ramli (left) and Mat Zain have said they are willing to testify before a tribunal against the duo, while serving police officers are also willing to come forward.

Malaysiakini has twice tweeted Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein since Saturday for a response, but there has been no reply.

Text-messages to Abdul Gani and an email to the public relations office of the Attorney-General’s Chambers have similarly gone unanswered to date.

Last Monday, Hishammuddin had asked for evidence of the alleged wrongdoing. When this was provided, he said there was “no need” for fresh investigation into the matter.
