What the Attorney General should do is to issue a statement to tell the MACC to shut the fook up because the power to launch criminal proceedings is the sole discretion and prerogative of the Attorney General and not the power of corrupted MACC officers who are serving the interests of the opposition.

Basically, the week of the 3rd to the 10th of August 2015 tells the whole story (see the news items below). A number of officers within the MACC were identified as working with the opposition and of selling classified documents and information to the opposition, which was then used in the effort to bring down Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak.


A more recent and interesting development is regarding the wife of one of the key MACC officers involved in the whole plot, Datin Noor Haslina Abdullah, who appears to also be involved in the MACC investigations and is privy to classified files and documents. She even had the gall to post her legal opinion on her Facebook page.

By law, investigations conducted by the MACC and PDRM are classified and are protected by the Official Secrets Act. But this has not stopped the MACC from selling this information to the opposition. And since December 2014 a lot of classified information and documents have surfaced on opposition websites and news portals.

And now even the wives of the MACC officers have access to this classified information and can talk about it on their Facebook page. The MACC might as well hold its meetings in the stadium and invite the opposition leaders and supporters to attend those public meetings.

After all, the MACC is already giving the opposition an hourly report on what is going on. They hold joint press conference with the opposition leaders. They drafted a charge sheet against the Prime Minister even before the investigation was completed and even before a decision was made. They recommended that the Prime Minister be charged for a crime even before it can be determined that a crime had been committed. When the Attorney General announced that it is his ruling that no crime had been committed they openly defy the Attorney General even though he was within his powers.

Article 145(3) of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia gives power to the Attorney General regarding criminal proceedings. By openly challenging the Attorney General, the MACC is making it appear like he was wrong and that he does not have this power.

The MACC knows that legally they do not have a leg to stand on but what they want to do is to play their game in the court of public opinion. They are trying to make it appear like there is something wrong with the hope that this will work up public sentiments.

This is no longer about the law, the Constitution, or the powers of the Attorney General. This is about a smear campaign to make it seem like the Attorney General is a crook and has committed a crime and is collaborating with the Prime Minister to cover up a crime that he has committed.

I suppose if the MACC can manipulate the system to cover up a RM8 billion crime in MAS, which was in turn to cover up the RM30 billion Forex loss, then the MACC is capable of doing anything under the sun.

What the Attorney General should do is to issue a statement to tell the MACC to shut the fook up because the power to launch criminal proceedings is the sole discretion and prerogative of the Attorney General and not the power of corrupted MACC officers who are serving the interests of the opposition.

  1. Inilah masalahnya apabila anda berkongsi maklumat dengan isteri anda yang tidak tahu menahu berkenaan dengan prosiding perundangan sesuatu agensi kerajaan. Maka dia pula berkongsi maklumat dengan orang lain melalui fb. Kalau sektor swasta ni pegawai terbabit telah dipecat. Mohon kerajaan gubal akta etika kakitangan awam supaya tindakan pemecatan boleh dilakukan seperti sektor swasta.
