Who will investigate Gani Patail?

Did AG Abdul Gani Patail really bury all evidence to cover up corruption scandals among ministers and senior government officials involving a hefty RM12 billion between 1994 and 1996? If so, why did he do that and who were the VIPs then?

Looks like Gani has to explain, especially when the allegations came from former senior cop like Mat Zain Ibrahim who used to be Kuala Lumpur criminal investigation chief. And of course, when conglomerates like Mas and Perwaja were brought up, it triggers an alarm. Why? Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was PM at that time.

In an open letter to Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak yesterday, Mat Zain said Abdul Gani, then a senior public prosecutor heading the prosecution division in 1994, was involved in covering up the roles of “ministers and chief ministers” in scandals such as the RM8 billion and RM4 billion losses incurred by Malaysia Airlines (MAS) and Perwaja Steel respectively.

“Between 1994 and 1996, Gani Patail was busy playing his role in closing cases or burying information that linked ministers or chief ministers who could be proven to have abused power or were corrupt. This includes the Perwaja case and also the one related to Tan Sri Tajuddin Ramli.”

He was referring to MAS’s claim that Tajuddin was responsible for RM8 billion in losses during his tenure as executive chairman of the national carrier from 1994 to 2001.

Tajuddin aka TRI, used a similar modus operandi of “signing long-term and lopsided contracts” similarly used by Perwaja Steel as well as Tenaga Nasional Berhad in its power deals with independent power producers (IPP) that is said to cost taxpayers RM20 billion a year.

“There are similarities in the MO used by all three companies. A common factor may be found and we cannot ignore the possibility that the persons involved in all the agreements are the same,” said Mat Zain, who headed the 1998 police probe into former deputy prime minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s black-eye case.

He added that the 1994-6 period seemed rife with scandals, including holidays taken by former Chief Justice Tan Sri Eusuff Chin and former Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohtar Abdullah with lawyer Datuk VK Lingam, who was implicated in fixing judicial appointments.

So, will there be investigations on this? What would be Najib's course of action to answer the allegations or will he just ignore it?

Let's wait and see...but on second thought, who does Mat Zain support now... Najib or Anwar?

if there are police reports about him, the govt must investigate. but what mat zain did was wrote a letter to najib, accusing him of such wrongdoings. so, the police wont investigate.

mat zain should also write to the macc... but why didnt he?

simple mind said...

bro,

i personally believe najib will just ignore it. if he instructs an investigation, he will have to investigate other allegations too, including that on her wife... dont u think so?

buat apa nak siasat benda lama ni? tentu ada sebab politik sebab mat zain ni dengar2nya tak suka pada kerajaan dan sokong pembangkang. malaysian insider pun portal antikerajaan. so, sama je motif diorang ni - nak buruk2kan kerajaan!

samdol punya worang!

motif mat zain juga perlu disiasat. kenapa sekarang baru nak cakap walhal dia dah pencen lama dan dah lama mengaku tahu mengenai kes ini.

kenapa sekarang baru dia tuduh gani sedangkan mereka pernah bekerjasama suatu waktu dahulu.

hairan juga kenapa surat terbuka dibuat kepada perdana menteri. jika dia ingin kes ini disiasat, kenapa tidak buat laporan kepada polis atau sprm saja?

dia ni nak apa sebenarnya?

ha ha ha... so many people are coming out of their hidings, making a revelation after revelation. all this doesnt make any sense as the timing looks a bit awkward.

by the way, who is this ex-criminal investigation chief and what is so grand about him then?

Hello Bujai

Memang la si mat zain ni nak bongkar semua sebab dia ni penyokong anwar. Kalau cam tu u minta la bongkar segala rasuah yang dibuat oleh anwar ibrahim masa dia UMNO dulu. Common la, senang je cakap bongkar bongkar!

Cant stand all these Ex-this and Ex-that making allegations when they are no longer in office and no longer enjoying all the perks of their positions. Lowlifes! Ya if you have all the proof, go straight to MACC. Stop courting cheap publicity especially if you happen to be supporting another side now and want to promote yourself.
