PETALING JAYA – “It’s Malaysia Day, but it seems like we are undoing our reform agenda, backtracking on election promises, and worse, contributing to a shrinking democratic space in the country.”

These were the words of former Klang MP Charles Santiago, who said it is difficult for the people to recover from the “stinging effect” of Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s case where the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) dropped all 47 charges.

“The eleven reasons given by the AGC weren’t worth the paper it was written on.

“This case is of public interest…why is the 200-page representation paper by Zahid’s lawyers not made public?” he asked.

Santiago also said the delay by the AGC in filing for an appeal in the case of Datuk Seri Najib Razak and 1MDB’s ex-CEO Arul Kanda Kandasamy raised several questions.
