Klang MP Charles Santiago today urged fellow MPs and civil society groups to lodge police reports against former attorney-general (AG) Mohamed Apandi Ali over alleged abuse of power to cover up investigations into SRC International and 1MDB.
He called on other political parties to come on board to prevent abuse of power, adding that DAP has lodged six police reports on the matter and Pejuang had lodged one.
“Other political parties should come on board. Let’s make this a national momentum so that there is no abuse of power anymore,” said Charles.
The lawmaker said this after he was called into the Klang Selatan district police department to assist in the investigation of his police report, which he lodged on Wednesday.
He was questioned by the police for about 45 minutes. His lawyer John Fam was also present.
Charles said the report will be forwarded to Bukit Aman for further investigation.
The DAP lawmaker had accused Apandi of having the intention to free former premier Najib Abdul Razak from facing his corruption trial.
In lodging his report, Charles cited a May 23 judgement delivered by High Court judge Azimah Omar in dismissing a defamation suit filed by Apandi against DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang.
Free Malaysia Today reported yesterday that Bukit Aman’s classified investigation unit (D5) had started an investigation into Apandi after receiving three reports against him.
Apandi was in the spotlight again recently after he was reported to have acted as a “middleman” in talks between the government and fugitive businessman Low Taek Jho.
