PETALING JAYA: The Attorney-General has confirmed that all access to his office in Putrajaya has been cut off by a complete lockdown, The Sun reported today.
The AG, Mohamed Apandi Ali, had been asked about a viral photo showing barbed-wire road-blocks on the roads leading to the building that houses the Attorney-General’s Chambers.
Earlier today, newly-appointed prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad had said that the AG and the former inspector-general of police, Khalid Abu Bakar, would be investigated for their roles in aborted investigations into 1MDB.
He had said the AG might have undermined his own credibility by hiding evidence of wrongdoings in the case involving 1MDB.
“If he has hidden evidence, that is a wrongdoing. That is wrong in law,” Mahathir said after announcing a list of 10 key ministries for which ministers would be appointed in his Pakatan Harapan administration.
Mahathir had said that the government would investigate all government agencies and their heads for corruption.
