KUALA LUMPUR, 12 March 2009: Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has slammed the decision of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to clear Attorney-General (AG) Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail and Inspector General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Musa Hassan of any wrongdoing in the fabrication of evidence relating to the “black-eye” incident.
Anwar said he felt disgusted that the two were not charged despite strong evidence and documents provided to the authorities.
“I believe there is a cover up,” he told reporters at the parliament lobby yesterday.
Anwar said he had recently written to every member of the Advisory Panel of the MACC highlighting his plight, adding that he hoped the panel members would look at the “black-eye” evidence thoroughly and reopen the case.
“I think it is very unfortunate that in a case like this, they (MACC) just brush it aside,” he added.
