KUALA LUMPUR, April 24 — Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has called out the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) for investigating Court of Appeal Judge Datuk Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali over an unexplained RM1 million found in the latter’s bank account.

The Port Dickson MP said that the judiciary has its own body that is capable of being the check and balance for judges.

“However, I would like to emphasise that the judiciary itself has a body that oversees and controls the integrity of judges and this is set to ensure that there is a clear division of powers in the existing system.

“Therefore, the MACC’s intervention violates this principle,” the PKR president said in a statement here.

He further said that the judiciary system is currently on the right track after decades of confusion and stagnation without any serious government effort to rectify it.

He added that such announcements might be considered as pressure or political interference.

Guan Eng calls out MACC for speedy action against Nazlan, but not Azam

PETALING JAYA: DAP chairman Lim Guan Eng has slammed the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) for not “jumping” to investigate its chief commissioner Azam Baki over alleged ownership of shares and warrants worth millions of ringgit, just like it did with a report involving Court of Appeal judge Nazlan Mohd Ghazali.

“Following the confirmation yesterday that the MACC has opened an investigation paper into Nazlan following a report, we want to know why the MACC failed to act similarly against Azam for allegedly breaching the law in purchasing millions of shares worth millions of ringgit last year,” he said in a statement today.

This comes in the wake of allegations that Nazlan was being investigated for an unexplained RM1 million in his bank account.

Nazlan has lodged a police report over the allegations, saying it was “false, baseless and malicious,” and aimed at undermining his credibility as a Court of Appeal judge.

Yesterday, Azam confirmed that the commission had opened an investigation paper on the matter upon receiving “some reports”, and not because of claims made on portals or social media.
