Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has denied that he had a hand in Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi getting a discharge not amounting to an acquittal (DNAA) for all 47 charges involving Yayasan Akalbudi funds.

He said the decision was made by the Attorney General, and he has questioned those who hurled allegations against him, including the Opposition bloc.

“The decision was made by the Attorney General. Why make baseless allegations saying that I interfered [in the decision]?


“I only asked what were the reasons,” Anwar told the Parliament today in his winding-up speech for the 12th Malaysia Plan Mid-Term Review debate.

The Mid-Term Review was passed earlier with a majority voice vote.

The Opposition MPs, however, before the vote was called, had walked out in protest of a verbal tiff between Anwar and Perikatan Nasional’s (PN) Putrajaya MP Datuk Mohd Radzi Md Jidin. – MMO
