Lingam case: Opposition presents 'key witness'
Nov 10, 09 1:37pm
Opposition MP R Sivarasa brought Jayanthi LG Naidu, who is said to be the 'key witness' sought by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in the VK Lingam case, to Parliament today.
This was to disprove Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Mohd Nazri Abdul Aziz's statement yesterday that MACC could not contact a key witness in the probe.
Nazri had said that further investigations into the matter cannot be undertaken by the MACC as the key witness could not be located.
Hence, the anti-graft body had classified the case as 'no further action'.Jayanthi however claimed that she has been available to assist MACC in their investigations at all times."The ACA (now MACC) have at all times been able to contact me earlier for my statement...
"After the announcement (written reply) by Nazri on Oct 23 (that no action would be taken), I called and asked the MACC who the key witness was that they were looking for."They were unable to answer me," she told reporters at Parliament.
