High-level conspiracy to topple Najib, says Azalina

Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said today said there was a high-level conspiracy to topple Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak in what would have been a coup against democratic process and the decision of the people at the last general election. The Umno Supreme Council member said former deputy prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin had said he was briefed by the former attorney-general (A-G) Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail about the alleged criminal "proof" against the Najib. She said a sitting A-G privately briefing and sharing classified legal information with Muhyiddin, a member of the Cabinet and Umno member, who clearly had vested interests, was unethical. "The fact that a sitting A-G is privately briefing and sharing classified legal information with Muhyiddin is not only unethical but also a breach of the Official Secrets Act," she said in a statement to media yesterday. Azalina said Muhyiddin was not only in breach of the Official Secrets Act, but was also complicit in a politically-motivated conspiracy to manipulate and abuse our legal system in order to overthrow a democratically elected prime minister. Based on his statement Muhyiddin was also indirectly questioning the credibility of the current A-G and the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), she said.        Azalina said A-G Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali on January 26, 2016 cleared Najib of any wrongdoing regarding the donations.    "So if any quarters are not in agreement with the A-G's action in handling a prosecution, they do not have any basis to challenge it, it is important to note that the A-G's decision was made after a detailed investigation from all angles on the report submitted by MACC," she said. Azalina questioned why was Muhyiddin was making such a confession, only now, just after he was suspended as the deputy president.     "Can his act be seen as abetting since he claims to have information on an alleged criminal act, but did not report to the authorities until today," she added. – Bernama, February 28, 2016.      ]]>
