The case of Rosli Dahlan: The MACC On Trial
by Din Merican
Today 18 June 2015, Muslims in Malaysia start the Ramadan Fast. Ramadan has a special but sad significance for my young friend, Lawyer Rosli Dahlan.
It was 8 Ramadans ago that the MACC conspired with then Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan and Attorney-General Tan Sri Gani Patail to fix up Rosli – brutally arresting him before his staff at his office, threw him into their underground dungeon, refusing to give him medical treatment for the injuries he suffered and then hastily charging him in the most humiliating way just one day before Hari Raya of 2007.
Musa Hassan, Gani Patail, Abu Kassim
Gani Patail, as the Public Prosecutor, then delayed Rosli’s criminal trial until 2010. When Rosli was acquitted, Gani kept up the false facade of an appeal until 2012 because Gani wanted to use it as a bargaining chip to force Rosli to withdraw his civil suits against Gani, the MACC Chief Commisioner Abu Kassim, Musa and a few other MACC officers including the lying faggot Kevin Morais.
They then delayed all of his civil suits after all the mainstream media have either apologized or were held liable for defaming Rosli :http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2015/04/06/rosli-dahlan-receives-grovelling-apology-from-utusan/
Meantime, the KL High court had also delivered a damning judgment against the MACC and NST for defamation against Rosli and ordered them to pay RM300,000 : http://www.thestar.com.my/News/Nation/2013/10/18/Court-Defamation-MACC-NST/
This was a first in Malaysian legal history and the annals of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC). Already, since it’s formation the MACC had topped the charts as the law enforcement agency where people die in custody as in the deaths of Teoh Beng Hock and Ahmad Sarbaini. But, no one from the MACC were charged for these deaths because all theMACC officers said they didn’t know what happened.
Finally, after 8 long years of waiting, Rosli’s civil suit goes to trial, read here:
When the MACC’s witnesses came to testify before the tough High Judge, Malaysians were exposed to alarming revelations of the contradictions in their evidence. It became more shocking when the MACC top officers brazenly switched their answers from “Tak tahu” (Don’t know) to “Tak Ingat” (Don’t remember) to “Tak Kisah” (Don’t care). So, that is how TeohBeng Hock and Ahmad Sarbaini died while in custody because the MACC just did not care:
But more than the case itself, the trial unearthed so many sheenanigans of rogues in government, resurrecting the story of Anwar Ibrahim’s Black Eye incident, the MAS Tajuddin Ramli case, the cover up of the Along loans shark syndicate and the suspicious Haj Trip of A-G Gani Patail with that shadycharacter Shahidan Shafie, read: http://www.malaysia-today.net/taking-the-good-lord-for-a-ride/
Rosli had repeatedly and publicly called Musa Hassan and Gani Patail liars for fixing him up. These are defamatory words, yet Musa has not sued Rosli and neither has A-G Gani charged him for criminal defamation:
Rosli’s case tells a chilling story of what can happen to an innocent private citizen if the institutions of government are turned against you. The case raises the question- Is the MACC really an independent commission out to eradicate corruption in Malaysia? Or is it just a tool of oppression to orchestrate conspiracies against the opposition and those perceived to be anti-establishment?
Anwar Ibrahim has filed an application to review Sodomy II, read:
We also ask why was the MACC Chief Abu Kassim in Doha on promotional roadshows to improve the MACC’s image overseas and using that as an excuse to not attend the trial? This sounds very much like Prime Minister Najib being in Saudi Arabia when Sabah was mourning the earthquake deaths:
We sincerely ask what has become of the MACC’s lofty slogans about investigating corruption without fear of favor?
If Ramli was investigated based on false allegations of living beyond his means, why is the MACC not investigating Rosmah’s open and defiant display of full range of the Hermes Birkin handbags, one pink one even said to cost RM820,000? Is that within the means of a Prime Minister’s wife? Where did the Prime Minister and his wife get all that wealth? Certainly not from Najib’s father, Tun Abdul Razak, who was known to be a frugal, upright and honest man. Is Abu Kassim so deaf that he cannot hear that the Razak brothers (Johari, Nizam, Nazim and Nazir) have already denied that they inherited huge wealth from their father?
If Rosli was just a witness who can be brutally arrested, how come Abu Kassim has not even brought in any of the 1MDB board members for questioning? Dr Mahathir says Arul Kanda Kandasamy lied about the US1 billion in Singapore, yet Abu Kassim has done nothing about it.
The Sarawak Report and The Edge have already marked the missing money trail, did the MACC bother to do anything about it? Or was Abu Kassim’s trip to Doha also to meet Jho Low’s Arab’s friends to see how they can cover this big hole in 1MDB’s unexplained RM42 billion?
This case is no longer about Rosli. This is case is much bigger than that. It is about a rogue government. It is about the rogue government of Prime Minister Najib blatantly abusing its powers and betraying the people’s trust. It is about this rogue government spinning falsehood to the people and the MACC with all its lofty slogans doing absolutely nothing.
This case puts the MACC on trial. No one, not even the Prime Minister is above the law and nobody should be allowed to act with impunity. Corruption and abuses of power will lead to the eventual collapse of our wonderful country.
