MACC probe into judge Nazlan completed, says Azam

GEORGE TOWN: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) investigation into Court of Appeal judge Nazlan Ghazali has been completed, but further details cannot be divulged, says chief commissioner Azam Baki.

Azam said he was not at liberty to disclose the Attorney-General’s Chambers’ (AGC) instructions, he told reporters on the sidelines of an MACC event here.

“We have completed our investigation. As I have said before, I am unable to announce what further instructions we (will) receive from the AGC.

“For now, I will refrain from commenting further,” he said.

Nazlan, who presided over Najib Razak’s SRC International trial in the High Court, had sentenced the former prime minister to 12 years’ jail and a RM210 million fine.

In his Federal Court appeal, Najib was prevented from arguing that Nazlan was under a serious conflict of interest when presiding over the trial. Najib lost the final appeal and is serving his sentence at Kajang prison.

On April 22, the MACC said it had opened an investigation paper following a report lodged about an unexplained sum of more than RM1 million in Nazlan’s bank account.

Nazlan had later lodged a police report over the allegations, saying they were “false, baseless and malicious” and aimed at undermining his credibility as a judge.

In May, the MACC said it had wrapped up its probe into Nazlan. However, earlier this month, Azam said the investigation paper was returned to the MACC for further investigations. - FMT
