The nation cannot have a Attorney General who is seen to either practice double standards or has been described as Mr NFA (No Further Action).




Media Statement by M Kula Segaran, DAP National Vice Chairman and MP for Ipoh in Ipoh on Saturday, July 20, 2013

The nation cannot have a Attorney General who is seen to either practice double standards or has been described as Mr NFA (No Further Action).

Two days ago, in a parliamentary reply to DAP MP for Seremban Anthony Loke, who had questioned the status of the investigation on Negeri Sembilan Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hassan RM10 million transfer to London using the services of Salamath Ali Money Changer in 2008, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Paul Low revealed that the Attorney-General's Chambers has the investigation papers from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

Anthony Loke who was recently charged under the Peaceful Assembly Padang Merbok rally had said these:-

“It’s taken them (MACC) three years, but they have yet to charge him, yet they can charge me within three weeks”.

Anthony is right to question why the Attorney General has not acted upon the case involving the Negeri Sembilan Menteri Besar’s case.

Is his not selective prosecution and double standard?

Paul has also given an unsatisfactory reply as he should have asked the Attorney General reasons for the inaction and put them in his reply.

But what was revealed by Inspector General of Police yesterday on the case involving Perkasa Vice President Zulkifli Nordin’s insult of Hinduism was even more shocking.

Tan Sri Khalid said that the police had submitted its probe to the Attorney-General's Chambers but was ordered to cease investigation.

"Due investigation was done for all the reports we received and the results were submitted to the Attorney-General's Chambers (AGC).

He said that the AGC ordered the police to cease investigation due to lack of evidence. Therefore it has been classified as No Further Action (NFA

He added as for the other cases, including that involving Perkasa president Ibrahim Ali, the police have yet to receive any word from the AGC.

No evidence against Zulkifli Nordin? This is most shocking and ridiculous!

Zulkifli’s insult of Hinduism is captured on internet video and has been watched by so many people. He has in April this year even apologized to Hindus for the hurt he caused them in a speech made several years ago. Police reports have also been lodged against Zulkifli Nordin.

So how could there be lack of evidence?

There have been other cases which the AGC has not taken the necessary actions including the case where former MP Datuk Ibrahim Ali was reported to have made seditious speech which hurt the feelings of the Christian community.

It was reported that on January 18, Ibrahim Ali had said these “Muslims must unite to protect their religion. They must seize those bibles, including the Malay editions, which contained the word Allah and other Arabic terms, and burn them.

So is this case going to be classified as NFA ( No Further Action) ?

The nation cannot  have a Attorney General who is seen to either practice double standards or has been described as Mr NFA .

Unless Attorney General Tan Sri Ghani Patail can  give a satisfactory reply for the non actions on the above cases involving Negeri Sembilan Menteri Besar, Zulkifli Nordin and Ibrahim Ali , the only option left for him is to tender his resignation for failing to ensure that the nation’s criminal justice system functions with integrity.
