ATTORNEY-General Tommy Thomas said he was shocked today by his office’s apparent disobedience in appealing the High Court’s November decision to acquit Rafizi Ramli of charges under the Banking and Financial Institutions Act, in which the latter was alleged to have revealed bank accounts relating to National Feedlot Corporation.

“It was decided after a discussion I had with Election Commission chairman Azhar Azizan Harun,” he told a news portal, adding that it was his express instruction the Attorney-General’s Chambers would not be appealing and he would take action to that effect on Monday.

  • The very fact we had a law against 'data leak' that involved criminal activities like those in NFC, is an encouragement to do many corrupt things. Data leak to fight corruption should be rewarded to make this type of corruption something very evil. Has PH the balls to bell this corruption cat?
