‘AG, MACC chief must explain why SRC case not prosecuted’

‘AG, MACC chief must explain why SRC case not prosecuted’

Attorney-general Mohamed Apandi Ali and Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission chief Dzulkifli Ahmad must explain why the SRC International case was never brought to court, lawyer Haniff Khatri said.

This was after Special Operations Division director Bahri Mohd Zin, 58, opted for early retirement last Friday reportedly dejected over failure to bring the case to light.

“Apandi and Dzulkifli must give an immediate, true and transparent explanation to all Malaysians on Bahri’s statement.

“Otherwise, both must resign immediately for their part in the conspiracy to cover up a crime related to SRC,” Haniff, who is former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s lawyer said.

Bahri told Malaysiakini he opted to retire because he could not serve “spider web laws” where small fries get caught but bigger players escape.

The special division Bahri headed was formed in 2010 to investigate high-profile cases, especially those involving corruption of more than RM1 million.

SRC, which was previously a subsidiary of 1MDB and now under the Finance Ministry, came under the spotlight after RM42 million of its money was found in Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s personal bank account. Najib also helms the Finance Ministry.

While MACC’s 1MDB investigations were complex and involved many overseas jurisdictions – with the attorney-general refusing to issue a mutual legal assistance to the commission to work with foreign investigators – the SRC case was clear-cut as it involved mostly local entities.

The SRC money was deposited into Najib’s accounts in two transactions – on Dec 26, 2014 and Feb 10, 2015 – after being routed through two companies, Gandingan Mentari Sdn Bhd and Ihsan Perdana Sdn Bhd.

Najib has reportedly claimed to be unaware about the money from SRC.

Apandi cleared the prime minister on both the RM2.6 billion found in Najib’s account, which was described as a donation, and the SRC cases.

Malaysiakini reported last week that the Special Operations Division had been allegedly downsized and that six of its officers who were involved in the SRC probe were transferred out of the division.

Among those transferred was Bahri’s deputy, Tan Kang Sai, thus leaving the special investigation unit without two of its top officials.
