In keeping with the lofty office he holds he has the unenviable task of following orders from the Cabinet. The Cabinet, after a magnanimous move to allow the report of the RCI to go public, also agreed that investigations should be carried out into all the allegations against former PM, and 5 other VIPs.
This is a gargantuan task that could decide whether this assignment would be his "waterloo".
From past reports of his modus operandi I fear for him. Wasn't he the one who declared before the Alltantuya case that there were ONLY 3 suspects. Wasn't he the one who changed the judge and the prosecution team at the eleventh hour? Wasn't he sitting beside EC chief Rashid when it was announced that the indelible ink will not be used ‘following legal advice and looking at the issue of public order and security…’. Cabinet advise or Patai?
AND WASN'T HE THE ONE WHO ON THE ONSET OF THE ROYAL COMMISSION OF INQUIRY INTO THE LINGAM TAPE SAID:
“no criminal offense appears to have been committed” and that Lingam “was in a monologue over his mobile phone and it was unclear who he was talking to”
Such keen perception reels one into a heady spin and thus to question his eligibility to conduct this probe. The above remark is sufficient to question his understanding of and commitment to judicial independence, integrity and accountability; and his fitness to continue as Attorney-General.
BETCHA PEOPLE, SOMEBODY WILL HAVE HIS FAMILIAR NFA* RUBBER STAMP WITHIN REACH.
*NFA,,,don't know ah? No Further Action, lah.
