Former Attorney-General Abu Talib Othman may have opened a can of worms when he questioned how the Dewan Rakyat Speaker knew that three former ministers had revealed government secrets when they raised the 1MDB issue during debate time last week.

Abu Talib wondered how Pandikar Amin Mulia, as head of the legislature, knew that the Cabinet had discussed the 1MDB issue. Also, how did he know what was discussed was classified information.

“Did somebody tell him about it? If that is the case, the Dewan Rakyat Speaker should have lodged a police report against that very person who told him,” Abu Talib told FMT.

He said this after the Police began investigations against former deputy prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin, ex-finance minister Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah and former rural and regional development minister Shafie Apdal for allegedly divulging national secrets.

“I am going by the logic of the Speaker. How does he know what was spoken by the three was discussed in the Cabinet and that it was classified information?”

Pandikar held a press conference on October 27 where he said the three ministers may have broken their oath of secrecy when they brought up the 1MDB issue while debating Budget 2017 in the Dewan Rakyat.

Several laws such as the Official Secrets Act and the Sedition Act, could be used against such MPs, he had said.

This resulted in Jaringan Melayu Malaysia (JMM) and Sahabat N87 Federal Territory lodging police reports against the three former ministers for allegedly revealing government secrets.

 Abu Talib, who retired in 1993, said it was quite unusual for Pandikar to come out publicly over the matter because a Speaker conducted proceedings in the House in compliance with rules of procedures.

Former Court of Appeal judge Mohamad Ariff Md Yusof also felt Pandikar should not be giving his view on the law outside the Dewan Rakyat as he could have raised the matter by referring it through the Standing Orders.

“He could have raised it when the matter was being discussed with reference to the Standing Orders so that those affected could justify their action. To comment on it later is prejudicial to those affected, and uncalled for,” he told Malaysiakini.

In a separate report, Malaysiakini said Haniff Khatri, a lawyer to former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad, had accused Pandikar of inciting police reports against the former ministers.

Haniff had said that as Pandikar had made his statement outside Parliament, he did not enjoy parliamentary protection.He also alleged that Pandikar’s statement of inciting police reports against the MPs was “an act detrimental to parliamentary democracy”.

“This is because he tried to prevent MPs from carrying out their duties in debating and discussing relevant issues in Parliament, in accordance with the Federal Constitution,” Haniff told Malaysiakini.

Meanwhile, Abu Talib said the police would have to complete their investigation on the matter since reports have been lodged.

“They are duty bound to investigate if an alleged crime has been committed. It is up to the public prosecutor to decide whether to frame charges based on credible evidence to be placed before the court,” he said.

Police have postponed recording Husni’s statement to next week while Muhyiddin has been summoned to be questioned also sometime next week.

  1. Orang Malaya, Tok Cik, CLF and Conrad will have something “nice” to say about this Speaker of Dewan Rakyat. I call him a Pedukang, which is a popular label in Kedah lingo, who is a lecherous individual. Tak Mulia is the equivalent to Dishonourable in English. He brings disgrace to our Dewan Rakyat. –Din Merican

  2. Now he says he knows that Muhiyiddin, Shafie and Mukhriz did not object in Cabinet which is 1) NOT TRUE, 2) NONE OF HIS BUSINESS 3) IF HE DOES KNOW THEN SOMEONE IS BREAKING THE LAW INCLUDING HIM.

    Pandikar Amin proves he is unofficial member of the Deplorables and Knuckledraggers group Red Shirts who says “donation of Saudi” which is theft is OK while non-existence of funding by Soros is a crime..

  3. How did this clown get the job of Speaker in the first place? Did he undergo any training or just simply was told to wing it? Does he have any parliamentary experience and understand the Westminster Parlimentary system?

    This pendekar Bujang Lapok needs to be impeached and be held to the same standards that the MP’s are being held. He needs to go back to school and be retrained on how to act and behave as a Speaker. He also needs to be non partisan regardless of his affiliation while sitting as Speaker. If he can’t do that then he needs to step down.

  4. If the top police leadership is “limbeh” nothing can be done and the engine of transformation will never kick start. Police is a good base to start with to discipline the politicians.

    The Inspector General and his Deputies should go to a mosque and take a joint oath vowing to act according to law without fear or favour and to eschew corruption (this is added in case readers ask what if they are corrupt themselves) Thereafter follow through with action. Call up any Minister who stokes racial sentiments or talks recklessly bordering on sedition, for a statement. For the first time, perhaps warn and release him. For a second time lock him up and charge him. It will be nice to start with the Home Minister as symbolic gesture. Should Najib or the Attorney General kick a fuss over this, haul them up as well. The Agong, Rulers, the entire police force and the public will certainly be behind you all. Deal with both BN and Opposition pact politicians even handedly. They must be made a sample of to augur good and clean politics.

  5. Never met this dulang brain, ever. But this Tan Sri Datuk Panglima’s (dan lain-lain) mannerisms are suggestive of an anal fixated personality. Remember he was terribly upset about the condition of the jamban (dan lain-lain) in Parliament until he threatened to vamoose?

    Apparently, they upgraded his personal toilet and adorned gilded bathroom fixtures with a very powerful automatic bidet that shoots multiple oblique sprays of eau de cologne instead of plain water.. That makes him very infantile happy, to the detriment of Oppo flunkies.

    The Malusian Parliament is a ripe example of Goalkeeper Kleptocracy.

  6. Nice words for this Tamparuli tamu (pasar tani) trader? You must be joking, Pak Din. I have nothing but contempt for him. Like all speakers, federal and states, they are nothing but “kaki ampu” whose qualification means nothing to you and I. Their job is to echo what the PM, MBs and CMs say and to make sure they reamin in power.

    I was at Zambry’s residence one evening, some years ago, and there was the state legislative speaker (no name mentioned) behaving so pally, domiciled and docile. He was begging Zambry for some favours and was following him everywhere. These are the kind of idiots who walk the corridors of power. Makes me wanna puke.

    We are gone, man.
