From Hafiz Hassan

DAP chairman Lim Guan Eng has criticised Attorney-General Idrus Harun for allowing meetings between his chambers (AGC) and lawyers representing fugitive Low Taek Jho, better known as Jho Low.

Lim said Idrus was wrong to allow the AGC to meet with Jho Low’s representatives. He expressed his worries that the AG was sending the wrong message that “Malaysia’s top law officer is willing to deal with crooks and wanted fugitives instead of steadfastly upholding the law without fear or favour”.

He has also questioned if Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob was aware of the meeting or meetings between the AGC’s and Jho Low’s representatives and whether Ismail gave the green light for the meetings.

Explain role as Jho Low’s ‘middleman’, Pejuang tells Apandi

SHAH ALAM: Pejuang has demanded former attorney-general (AG) Apandi Ali explain his involvement as the “middleman” in talks between the government and fugitive businessman Low Taek Jho, or Jho Low, to negotiate a settlement over the 1MDB scandal.

Party lawyer Rafique Rashid Ali said Apandi’s role as AG during then prime minister Najib Razak’s tenure meant he had full access to the investigating papers for the 1MDB and SRC International cases.

He said it also raised questions as to whether Apandi was aware of the fugitive businessman’s current whereabouts as well as his role in the 1MDB case.

“Apandi had himself admitted to arranging a meeting with the lawyers representing Jho Low, and it is alleged that he offered the government RM1.5 billion to settle the charges against Jho Low.

“As a former AG, Apandi had full access to the investigating papers for the 1MDB and SRC cases. Isn’t he now in a position of conflict of interest by helping Jho Low?,” Rafique said.
