Attorney General Should Focus on Criminal Cases, Not Prosecute PR Leaders


KUALA LUMPUR, July 29: The Attorney General allegedly is making selective prosecution when he was directly involved in cases involving leaders of Pakatan Rakyat (PR).

This claim was made by PKR De Facto Leader, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim when Tan Sri Abdul Ghani Patail was seen to be directly involved when PR leaders are prosecuted in court.

Anwar stressed that the original responsibility of the Attorney General is to handle bigger cases such as abuse of power and criminal violence.

“It is lower than the authority of the Attorney General’s office, I feel that there are unhealthy motives and they want to express hatred when all good cases on the other side or here all needs to be managed and it hurts me,” he told reporters in his media statement at the PKR headquarters this morning.

Previously, the Pandam Member of Parliament, Rafizi Ramli and the Seremban Member of Parliament, Anthony Loke were charged for not complying with the conditions set by the Dang Wangi District Police Chief, ACP Zinuddin Ahmad to obtain permission from the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) to assemble at Padang Merbok.

They allegedly failed to give a 10 days’ notice to the police before organising the Black505 assembly.

According to Anwar, the charges imposed today on the 33 people who participated in the rally is another example of abuse of power clearly and plainly carried out by the Attorney General.
