Support motion to drag AG to Parliament

SHAH ALAM, MAR 2: All parliament members are urged to support the motion to drag the Attorney-General (AG), Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali to Parliament to explain his decision to ‘release’ the Prime Minister concerning the RM2.6 billion donation case.
DAP Parliament Head, Lim Kit Siang said, there is no reason why parliament members who uphold the values of integrity, responsibility and transparency should reject the motion.
He said the motion which was filed by Shah Alam Member of Parliament, Khalid Samad is also timely.
“In fact, if Apandi is committed to the principles of good governance and sovereignty of law, he actually don’t need any motion to force him to it.
“He himself should offer to clarify all questions pertaining to 1MDB (1 Malaysia Development Berhad) scandal in Parliament,” he said in a statement.
At the same time, Kit Siang who is also the Gelang Patah Member of Parliament said, King Salman’s silence throughout his visit in this country relating to the RM2.6 billion donation is a big slap to Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s integrity.

“The silence is understandable in view of Saudi Arabia’s integrity is at stake.
“Unless they can prove that the claim by United State of America’s (US) Department of Justice (DOJ) concerning the RM2.6 billion is not true,” he said.
Last February 28, Khalid who is also Amanah Information Head announced that the motion was made for AG’s clarification in the Parliament regarding discrepancies in statements on the RM2.6 billion issue.
He claimed that, international investigations and courts’ decisions in fact showed that the fund was really from 1MDB which have been misappropriated, as decided in Singapore.
These are in contrary to Apandi’s statement that the fund had supposed been donated by Saudi royal family.
