“A First In the World”

This is an opinion piece purportedly written by a lawyer named Dr Syed Iskandar Syed Jaafar Al Mahdzar about our Attorney General’s recent behaviour in clearing Najib of any wrong doing. We took the liberty to publish it here: 

A First In The World

When the Malaysian Attorney General decided that there is no case to pursue against the Malaysian Prime Minister, what actually the AG was thinking? Perhaps most Malaysians are stupid, may be. Would anyone believe that the PM simply received a donation amounting to at least USD700 million (RM2.6 billion) from an unkown Arabs.

Accepting donation is an offence for a public officer under the MACC Act 2009 but surprisingly the AG didn’t even found it to be so.

Being a legal practioner myself, of course this will be of great help for any lawyers to argue for acquittal for clients who received bribes on smaller scale supplying a reason that it was a donation  while citing that it was legal for public officer to receive donation personally. Best part, from the Malaysian Parliament Hansard, one Minister was quoted to have said that there is nothing illegal to receive political donation and in the present case, nothing illegal to received multi billion ringgit donation into personal account even though one is a public servant.

A day ago, Manjeet Singh Dhillon , a local lawyer went to Court of Appeal and argued on behalf of the former special officer to the former Selangor Menteri Besar that it was not an offence to receive political donation citing the RM2.6 billion , AG decision.

The MACC in the case argued that the political donation was received using a different account purposely set up to divert the fund from the political party thus it is another criminal offence. Well, the MACC prosecutor might have forgotten the fact that the Malaysian PM has received USD700 million in political donation directly into his personal account and the AG has found it to be perfectly legal.

How this goon has managed to become AG is to no one surprise. He was formally a candidate in the General Election in Kelantan representing the ruling party. He joined the judiciary as the JC in 2003 and was speedily regularly promoted ending up as one of the Federal Court judge  the highest court in Malaysia before been appointed as the AG.

From the day of the AG announcement that it is no offence to receive bribes in the form of donation, lol behold all criminals charged with corruption, be rest assured that you will be acquitted as soon as your case comes up for hearing as your counsel will argue that you only receive donation and not bribes.

It is therefore important for the AG to propose an amendment to the MACC Act 2009 to exclude receiving donation as an offence.

Congrats Malaysia, the Zimbabwe in the making.

AG’s decision not to prosecute Najib Razak will have a lot of repercussions. Taking leave from this episode, surely some GLCs may have to rethink or throw away their no-gift policy.. We hope not. In this country, ‘kepimpinan tidak boleh dijadikan tauladan’!

  1. I pity all law students and perhaps law lecturers when answering and marking exam papers based on this issue. Congrats to AG for making our lives more colorful


  2. Politik wang?. Para perwakilan UMNO kena bersiap sedia dengan akaun bank dari sekarang. Senang untuk memasukan derma nanti. Setiausaha agung UMNO kena sedia skrip dari sekarang, kalau tidak jadilah nanti double standard macm yang berlaku di negri sembilan dan perak

    What’s there in the personality of a nation’s Attorney General the President would demand to be imperative?


  4. I believe that it is now untenable for the executives of IPIC to continue with the agreement to assume the liabilities of 1MDB bearing in mind the fallout from the Swiss investigations! Hoowah!


  5. To report to Tun Dr Mahathir, you need to achieve your KPIs and perform to your level best.

    To report to Najib, all you need is loyalty (read that as bootlicking) and pledge that you will take bullets for him.

    Tun puts Malaysia on the world map – as a model for developing countries to emulate and developed nations to envy.

    Najib sullied Malaysia’s image through 1MDB and became the second Most Corrupt Asian Country after the Philiphines.



  6. At the rate things are deteriorating for Zahid to ‘rasa habuan’ dia as a Prime Minister is to start ruling this country with an ‘IRON FIST’ and the absolute suppression of the internet net and start to imprison any RAKYAT that question the AUTHORITY. Allah help us all.


  7. When it comes to lying, cheating and all that this PM is indeed First World. This is not A First In the World. Stay tuned. More “First” in the world coming up real soon.
