SIL Should Tell FIL What He Told Selangor MB

At the Parliament yesterday:

ACA forwards probe report to prosecutors

Selangor Anti-Corruption Agency director Jaafar Ma'ahad said investigations had been completed into the matter with a report forwarded to the agency's prosecution division.

"It's up to them to charge him or not," he said.

It had earlier been reported that the ACA probe had discovered Yahya had been guilty of "improper conduct" and not of involvement in wrongdoing.

Yahya had been alleged to have written supporting letters for cleaning and garbage collection to be awarded to several companies in Petaling Jaya.

Meanwhile, Minister in the Prime Minister's Department, Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz, said in Parliament yesterday that the ACA had not completed investigations in the matter.

"I understand that the case is still under investigation and that there is no official statement from the agency that investigations to the matter had been completed," he said in a response to Rembau MP Khairy Jamaluddin.

Meanwhile, in a statement to Bernama, Abdul Khalid said he had never made a statement on behalf of the ACA on the case.

He said the statement which he made previously was based on a Selangor ACA letter, dated June 11, that the investigations into the case had been completed.

"As such, the claim that I made the statement on behalf of ACA was not true."

Abdul Khalid was refuting a claim by Khairy in the Dewan Rakyat that he made a statement on behalf of ACA in connection with abuse of power by a senior officer.


M'sian PM says his deputy not involved in Mongolian murder

KUALA LUMPUR - MALAYSIAN Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi on Tuesday denied that his deputy Najib Razak and the man's wife were involved in the 2006 murder of a Mongolian model.

A prominent Malaysian blogger has linked the couple to the case.

Mr Abdullah said that action would be taken against the blogger who made the allegations against Mr Najib and his wife Ms Rosmah Mansor, and who has already been charged with sedition over the issue.

'I don't believe that Najib and Rosmah are involved,' the premier told reporters.

He described blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin's actions as 'unacceptable'.

'The Attorney General has told me that an investigation will be carried out and action will be taken against him,' Mr Abdullah said.

Political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda, a close associate of Mr Najib, is currently on trial for abetting the murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu.

Two police officers from the Special Action Force (UTK), whose duties included guarding Mr Abdullah and Mr Najib, were also charged with the killing.

Raja Petra, founder and editor of the popular Malaysia Today site, last week lodged a signed declaration in court linking Ms Rosmah to the case.

He has already been charged with sedition over an earlier article he wrote on his website, linking both Mr Najib and Ms Rosmah to the murder. If convicted, he faces three years in jail.

Mr Najib, who is heir apparent to Mr Abdullah, has repeatedly denied any involvement in the death of the 28-year-old Mongolian woman, whose body was blown up with explosives.

Mr Abdullah dismissed Raja Petra's allegations that the premier had seen a military intelligence report on the murder that backed the allegations.

'No, I can't remember receiving anything. He can say anything but I have not seen it,' Mr Abdullah said.

Mr Najib again rejected links to the case in May, telling parliament that they were 'lies aimed at tarnishing my name'.

'As a responsible citizen, I will say again that I have never known or even met this woman before. I pray that the court will continue to seek justice and uphold the law without any interference,' he said at the time. -- AFP


Is the PM the Police Chief? Is the PM the AG?

Oh, I forgot. He is both indeed. And SIL has the intelligence on the murder, remember?
