MACC must let cops probe into judge Nazlan’s report first, says lawyer

Judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali has on April 21 lodged a police report to deny allegations of corruption made against him by blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin in the Malaysia Today site. – The Malaysian Insight file pic, April 27, 2022.

THE Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) should let police investigate judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali’s report against a blog that made corruption allegations against him, and only then take up the case if there are grounds to suspect graft, a prominent lawyer said.

Mohd Haniff Khatri Abdulla was responding to the probe by the anti-graft agency against Nazlan – now a Court of Appeal judge – who found former prime minister Najib Razak guilty of corruption as a High Court judge in 2020.

  • First of all, MACC should not even be probing the judge. Its unconstitutional. The police should also not probe the judge but RPK, that scum of a liar, based on the Judge's police report. Then extradite him for trial because he is being paid to spread falsehood and lies. Living a wonderful life in UK.
