Ex-Umno man lodges report against A-G, alleging abuse of power

Former Umno grassroots leader Datuk Seri Khairuddin Abu Hassan has lodged a police report against Attorney-General (A-G) Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali and wants him investigated for abuse of power.

Khairuddin lodged the report at the Dang Wangi district police headquarters in Kuala Lumpur today at 1.30pm and posted a photo of the report on his Facebook page.

"I urge the police to investigate the attorney-general for any element of abuse of power, criminal negligence, for manipulating facts and for disrupting public officers from performing their duties," the former Batu Kawan Umno division leader said on the social media site.

In his police report, he said Apandi should be investigated for offences in relation to alleged financial scandals involving 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak's RM2.6 billion donation and SRC International Sdn Bhd.

Apandi yesterday announced that there was not enough evidence to show Najib had committed any wrongdoing in receiving the political donation from the Saudi royal family, nor did he abuse his power in the Cabinet, which approved the government's guarantee of a RM4 billion loan for SRC International.

Apandi also said he was satisfied that Najib had shown he had no knowledge of nor did he instruct the transfer of funds from SRC International to his personal accounts.

Khairuddin on his Facebook today said the A-G owed the public a more detailed explanation about Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission's (MACC) investigation papers on these matters, which the anti-graft agency had submitted to him.

"A comprehensive explanation from the A-G is very important to ensure the integrity and credibility of the attorney-general's office and in view of lack of credibility the government has in the eyes of the public."

Khairuddin has been a staunch critic of Najib and 1MDB and is facing a charge of attempted sabotage of the economy after lodging several reports against state-owned 1MDB with police in various countries.
