How Rewcastle-Brown acquired highly confidential information.
Sarawak Report editor Clare Rewcastle-Brown asserted that murdered Senior Deputy Public Prosecutor, Kevin Morais, was the man who leaked the information about the Attorney-General Chamber’s (AGC) investigation over misappropriation at former 1MDB subsidiary SRC International.
Rewcastle-Brown told the Malay Mail in an interview that “several credible sources” told her it was Morais who fed her the information about the investigation and leaked what was allegedly a charge sheet against former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
“I believe it was Kevin Morais,” the London-based Sarawak Report editor said when asked how she had acquired the highly confidential information.
“I checked with several credible sources and…I believed it was Morais,” she added.
Three years ago Morais’ brother, Charles, issued a statutory declaration alleging his brother was responsible for drafting the charge sheets against Najib and that he had then sent copies of those charge sheets to Sarawak Report.
The papers were reportedly sent the day after Najib removed then Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail and several members of his government in what was seen as an attempt to pre-empt his purported arrest.
Charles Morais told reporters that he did not believe for a moment that the motive for kidnapping and strangling his brother was that he was acting as the prosecutor in a separate bribery case, for which several men face trial. – Malay Mail
