No evidence 1MDB money misused says Apandi

1195

The Malaysian Attorney General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali has rebutted claims that no 1MDB money has been diverted and misused, adding that no agency has delivered such evidence.

He said the law enforcement of various jurisdictions provided no evidence that the sovereign fund’s money was used wrongfully.

But he apparently said his chambers (that of the Attorney General indeed, takes cognizance of the civil lawsuits by the US Department of Justice or DOJ.

But however expressed his disappointment over the DOJ move.

“This second act (DOJ) took place on the anniversary of the first act (When the Sarawak Report broke the story), and apparently it is an action replay.

“We would like to express our disappointment because once again the AGC was not informed or notified by the DoJ regarding these actions.

“We also found that there was no evidence of any investigation conducted by any law enforcement agency for a variety of jurisdictions showing misused money from 1MDB and that no criminal charges against any individuals for misappropriation of funds from 1MDB (were pursued), “he said in a statement.

Apandi said 1MDB is a Malaysian company and was the subject of several internal investigations, including that of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, the Auditor General and the Public Accounts Committee of the State.

“After review, we found that no crime was committed. At the moment, there is still an ongoing investigation by the Royal Malaysian Police on 1MDB,” he said.

  1. Malaysia and Singapore are shiny examples of what a good, clean government should. There is absolutely no corruption. If you need to take, just be sure to make it “legal”.

  2. I smell something similar about to happen over in Singapore soon.

    Interesting facts about Lucien Wong:

    1. Lucien Wong was PM Lee Hsien Loong’s personal lawyer and represented him during the dispute with his siblings over LKY’s estate.

    2. Shortly after the dispute started, he was quickly nominated to become Attorney General (AG).

    3. The Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC), which Lucien Wong now heads, represented the Government and successfully fended off legal challenges by LKY’s estate (see http://www.straitstimes.com/politics/court-of-appeal-reserves-judgement-in-appeal-over-lee-kuan-yews-interview-transcripts for example)

    4. Lucien Wong is the first ever AG to have no experience on the Bench, and to have never acted for the State in legal matters. He was a corporate lawyer (see http://www.todayonline.com/singapore/top-corporate-lawyer-lucien-wong-succeed-v-k-rajah-attorney-general-january)

    5. Lucien Wong was appointed AG at age 63, to replace V. K. Rajah, who had to retire at age 60. When asked about Article 35(4) of the Constitution, which states that the Attorney General shall hold office until he turns 60 years old, Law Minister Shanmugam argues that the Government can arbitrarily decide to appoint someone above the age of 60. (more details at http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/parliament-shanmugam-sylvia-lim-clash-over-age-of-incoming-attorney-general)

    6. Lucien Wong spent 30 years in private practice, and was chairman and senior partner at top law firm Allen & Gledhill. Shanmugam was also a senior partner at the same firm for many years before entering politics.

    and Bonus Fact (not about Lucien Wong):

    7. The role of ‘Deputy Attorney General’ was only recently created to reflect the “increasing volume and complexity of legal work of the Government”. Earlier this year, and for the first time ever, an ex-PAP MP, Hri Kumar was appointed the Deputy AG (http://www.todayonline.com/singapore/hri-kumar-appointed-deputy-ag-march-1)

    The more you know!

    1. At least most of the lower level supporters get paid. Singapore 69.9% of the morons only get more hardship and GST voucher. Intelligent society isn’t it? Lol!

  3. You say No Evidence means No Evidence ah? KNN fuck u Apandi whoever the fuck u r … Allah taught u to lie and work for the biggest swindler of all ah???

    Sloppy editing in the opening first sentence… The writer intended to say: The AG has rebutted claims that (or charges of) 1MDB money being diverted or misused… Instead, the above writer used double negatives to make the point thus making it into a positive statement of expression.
