Attorney-General: Sarawak Report allegations false
Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali.

PETALING JAYA - The latest allegations by Clare Rewcastle-Brown in Sarawak Report are false, says Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali.

"The alleged charge sheets are not in and never reached the Attorney-General's Chambers. Furthermore, the format of the sheets is not correct or written by our Chambers," said the newly appointed Attorney-General in a statement.

‎"The Special Task Force investigation has not been completed. So it is not legally possible for charge sheets to be drafted in advance," he said.

He was referring to Sarawak Report's allegation that Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail was sacked as Attorney-General on Tuesday because he wanted to take action against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Mohamed Apandi said the alleged charge papers indicate that there was a conspiracy to topple a serving Prime Minister by criminalising him, and that the methods include doctoring and criminal leakage.

"This plot represents a threat to Malaysia's democracy and I will direct for all action possible to be taken to investigate. The full force of the law will be applied without exception to any that are found guilty," he said.
