Malaysian Bar takes AG’s decision on RM2.6b, SRC International cases to court

KUALA LUMPUR - The Malaysian Bar has filed a judicial review at the High Court against the Attorney-General’s decision to close investigations on the transfers of RM2.6 billion and funds from SRC International to the prime minister’s accounts.

Malaysian Bar president Steven Thiru said the legal body was seeking to set aside Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali’s decisions on January 26, 2016, that cleared Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak of wrongdoing in both cases and that ordered the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to close the investigation papers.

“There should be no usurpation of the judicial powers of the courts, as it is for the courts — and not the Attorney General — to decide on the innocence or guilt of a suspect in respect of any alleged crime,” Steven said in a statement.
