Kenyataan Akhbar - Sirul

KENYATAAN AKHBAR 20 Januari 2015

"Peguam Negara perlu meletak jawatan dan bertanggungjawab untuk Sirul yang melarikan diri"

20 Januari 2015

Selepas keputusan Mahkamah Rayuan pada  23 Ogos 2013 yang membebaskan Ketua Inspektor Azilah Hadri dan Koperal Sirul Azhar Umar, dua orang bekas anggota UTK untuk pembunuhan wanita Mongolia Altantuya Shaariibuu, saya telah mengeluarkan kenyataan akhbar mempersoalkan mengapa Jabatan Peguam Negara tidak membuat segera permohonan di bawah seksyen 56A Akta Mahkamah Kehakiman 1964 untuk waran tangkap untuk mengekalkan tertuduh di dalam tahanan atau melepaskannya dengan jaminan sementara menunggu pendengaran rayuan Peguam Negara terhadap keputusan tersebut.

Saya telah menegaskan bahawa permohonan sedemikian biasa dibangkit oleh Timbalan Pendakwa Raya dalam keadaan apa-apa pembebasan untuk memastikan kehadiran tertuduh apabila rayuan Peguam Negara didengari. Hakikat itu tidak dilakukan dalam kes profil ini sangat tinggi menimbulkan persoalan tentang kelakuan perkara itu.

Selepas rayuan Peguam Negara telah difailkan di Mahkamah Persekutuan, terdapat satu lagi peluang untuk membuat permohonan yang sama menggunakan seksyen 66 di Akta yang sama untuk perintah jenis yang sama. Sekali lagi ini tidak dilakukan bertentangan dengan amalan biasa. Saya mengeluarkan satu lagi kenyataan mempersoalkan mengapa ia tidak dilakukan. Adakah ini disengajakan? Ketinggalan yang ketara tersebut adalah sukar untuk diterangkan sebagai akibat daripada kecuaian. Kedua-dua tertuduh harus sekurang-kurangnya dikenakan syarat-syarat ikat jamin seperti menyerahkan pasport mereka dan melapor denga kerap kepada pihak polis. Permohonan kepada mahkamah untuk mendapat perintah tersebut tidak pernah dibuat oleh Peguam Negara.

Kegagalan ini oleh Peguam Negara kini telah akibatkan keadaan di mana Sirul telah dibenarkan untuk meninggalkan negara ini dan melarikan diri dari pendengaran di Mahkamah Persekutuan di mana pembebasannya telah diterbalikkan dan sabitannya dipulihkan.

Proses pentadbiran keadilan telah dihina melalui cara Peguam Negara telah mengendalikan perkara ini.

Mesti ada siasatan penuh oleh Jemaah Menteri kepada peranan Peguam Negara telah membenarkan perkara ini berlaku.

Dalam mana-mana negara lain di mana budaya akauntabiliti diamalkan, Peguam Negara akan meletakkan jawatannya dengan serta-merta.

Press Statement re Sirul

PRESS STATEMENT 20th January 2015

 

“AG should resign and be held responsible for Sirul fleeing”

 

16 January 2015

 

Shortly after the Court of Appeal decision back in 23 August 2013 acquitting Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri and Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar,  two former UTK members for the murder of Mongolian AltantuyaShaariibuu, I issued a press statement questioning why the Attorney General’s Chambers had not made an immediate application under section 56 A of the Courts of Judicature Act 1964 for a warrant of arrest to keep the accused in custody or release him on bail pending the hearing of the AG’s appeal against the acquittal.

 

I had pointed out that such applications are routinely done by DPP’s in such instances of acquittals to ensure the attendance of the accused  when the AG’s appeal is heard.  The fact it was not done in this very high profile case raised questions about the conduct of the matter.

 

After the AG's appeal was filed in the Federal Court, there was yet another opportunity to make the same application using section 66 of the same Act for the same kind of order.  Again this was not done contrary to common practice. I issued another statement questioning why it was not done. Was this deliberate? Such an obvious omission was difficult to explain simply as a result of negligence. Both the accused should at least been subjected to bail conditions such as surrendering their passports and regular reporting to the police.  All that required was an application to court which was never made.

 

The result of this today is that Sirul was able to leave the country and abscond from the Federal Court hearing where his acquittal was reversed and his conviction restored. 

 

The process of administration of justice has been made a mockery by the manner the Attorney General has conducted the matter.

 

There must be a full inquiry by the Cabinet into how the Attorney-General permitted this to happen.

 

In any other country where a culture of accountability is practiced, the Attorney-General would tender his resignation immediately.

Repatriate Amalilio quickly to the Philippines for prosecution there

PRESS STATEMENT 

“Repatriate Amalilio quickly to the Philippines for prosecution there”

5 January 2015

It was recently reported widely in Philippine media that the Philippine Department of Justice is sending a legal team to Malaysia soon to arrange for the extradition of Amalilio. 

We welcome this initiative of the Philippine’s Department of Justice to bring suspected scam mastermind Manuel Amalilio, back from Malaysia to the Philippines to face a string of syndicated fraud charges next month. In our fact-finding trip to Manila in February 2013 we established that Amalilio, also known as Mohammad Kama bin Said, was sought by Filipino authorities for embezzling up to 15,000 investors of around RM 935 million (12 billion Pesos) in a Ponzi-type investment scheme under his company Aman Future Group back in 2012. The 15,000 victims of Amalilo include many Malaysians particularly from Sabah. 

In January 2013, Philippine law enforcers were prohibited from boarding a plane with Amalilio from Malaysia back to the Philippines. Sabah police acting supposedly on the instructions of Musa Aman, the Chief Minister, and Attorney General Gani Patail, stopped his extradition claiming that Amalilio is a Malaysian citizen, and secondly, there is no extradition agreement between Malaysia and Philippines. He was subsequently charged for holding a fake Philippine passport to which he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to a period of two years in Kota Kinabalu.

At that time, we had questioned why the Malaysian authorities would be so interested in prosecuting Amalilo purportedly for having a “fake” Philippine passport. If Amalilio did in fact have a fake Philippine passport, the aggrieved party would have been the Philippine government and he should have been handed over to them. Was Amalilo’s prosecution for the so-called fake passport simply done in order to frustrate the Phillipppine government’s efforts to repatriate him?

Amalilio is a family relative to Sabah Chief Minister Musa Aman and also his brother Anifah Aman, the current Foreign Minister. 

Although Amalilio was released in October this year, our government has yet to hand him over to the Philippine authorities for prosecution. 

We urge Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak to give the necessary instructions immediately so that all our local agencies cooperate fully with the Philippine government and ensure that Amalilo is extradited quickly to the Philippines to face the criminal justice system there. 

We remind Prime Minister Najib that Amalilio remains on Interpol’s list of wanted criminals. We must not be seen to be harbouring wanted criminals. We must also not be seen to continue to frustrate the wishes of the Philippine people who want justice for the crimes of Amalilio.

Kenyataan Akhbar

PENDIRIAN PEGUAM NEGARA BAHAWA BELIAU BERTINDAK SECARA PROFESIONAL DI DALAM TUDUHAN-TUDUHAN HASUTAN ADALAH SANGAT MERAGUKAN

31 Oktober 2014

Saya merujuk kepada kenyataan Peguam Negara Tan Sri Gani Patail pada 30 Oktober  2014 bahawa beliau tidak mendakwa dengan "sesuka hati" beliau. Ini adalah sebagai jawapan kepada kritikan meluas tentang tuduhan-tuduhan hasutan bertubi-tubi baru-baru ini.

Pendirian Peguam Negara bahawa beliau telah menjalankan kuasa pendakwaannya dengan betul adalah sukar dipercayai. Lebih 30 orang telah didakwa atau disiasat di dalam tindakan keras ala Ops Lalang baru-baru ini -  yang kebanyakannya adalah berdasarkan kepada laporan polis yang dibuat oleh ahli-ahli Umno atau kumpulan ekstremis pro-BN.

Pada 14 Ogos, hanya beberapa hari sebelum tindakan keras hasutan bermula, Peguam Negara telah mengadakan pertemuan tertutup dengan 60 ketua-ketua bahagian Umno. Walaupun terdapat desakan orang awam untuk beliau mendedahkan kebenaran mengenai mesyuarat tersebut, Peguam Negara hanya mendiamkan diri.

Selain itu, pada 10 September, kerana kritikan awam, Peguam Negara telah mengeluarkan kenyataan yang berjanji untuk mengkaji semula tuduhan-tuduhan hasutan baru-baru ini. Tetapi tidak ada tindakan lebih lanjut sama sekali. Sebaliknya lebih ramai orang didakwa di mahkamah untuk disiasat atau didakwa di bawah Akta Hasutan yang zalim.

Peguam Negara mendakwa ada 'konteks' semasa Ibrahim Ali membuat ‘kenyataan membakar bible’ beliau yang kontroversial, dan oleh itu beliau tidak didakwa. Namun Gani Patail jelas tidak peduli dengan 'konteks' apabila beliau mendakwa Ahli Parlimen Khalid Samad bagi pendapat beliau mengenai kuasa MAIS atau peguam dan Ahli Parlimen N Surendran bagi kenyataannya yang mempertahankan anak guam beliau Anwar Ibrahim di dalam kes Liwat II atau Profesor Azmi Shahrom bagi pendapat undang-undang beliau.

Tuduhan-tuduhan tersebut dilakukan di dalam tempoh masa yang singkat dan, kami percaya, sebagai tindak balas kepada tekanan langsung dari pimpinan Umno lapisan atas, menunjukkan tidak ada apa-apa yang profesional tentang cara di mana Peguam Negara telah memutuskan untuk memulakannya.

Tuduhan-tuduhan hasutan tersebut adalah perkara yang sangat membimbangkan untuk rakyat Malaysia dan telah dikutuk di peringkat antarabangsa. Kami mendesak Peguam Negara untuk melakukan perkara yang sewajarnya dengan segera mengkaji dan menggugurkan semua tuduhan-tuduhan hasutan yang telah dibawa ke mahkamah.
