Gani, Zeti and Abu Kassim–The Upright Malaysians?
Gani, Zeti and Abu Kassim are upright citizens, says Mahathir. The old man certainly has a very weird way of looking at things. Even Satan mengaku kalah when compared to these three people. The things these people have done and are continuing to do would curl your toes if you just knew the details.
NO HOLDS BARRED
Raja Petra Kamarudin
(Free Malaysia Today, 18 December 2012) – Rosli also touched on Musa’s purported links with underworld figure Goh Cheng Poh, aka Tengku Goh, in a case known as the Copgate affair, of which Rosli has first-hand knowledge due to his role as Ramli’s lawyer.
“Musa’s links with the underworld is borne out in the affidavit of Tengku Goh who made specific mention of him when Goh sought habeas corpus.”
“Musa caused six rank and file officers to be charged so that the criminal Goh could be released.”
“I know all these because I was fixed by the AG (Attorney-General Abdul Gani Patail) on a trumped up charge whereas all I did was to help the CCID (Ramli) when the AG abdicated his constitutional duty in refusing to prepare affidavits for the police,” revealed Rosli.
I remember back in 1998 when the Anwarinas alleged that Anwar Ibrahim had been fixed up on fabricated charges. Anwar’s lawyers also alleged that certain people were threatened (one was even threatened with a death sentence, said a prominent lawyer in his Affidavit) if they did not become a prosecution witness and testify against Anwar Ibrahim.
And the man who was using this method to gain a conviction against Anwar was no other than the then prosecutor, Abdul Gani Patail, who was later rewarded with the post of Attorney -General for serving Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s interest. And the Federal Court appears to have agreed with this allegation of trial-rigging when it acquitted Anwar on 2nd September 2004 on grounds that the prosecution (meaning Gani) had failed to prove Anwar’s guilt.
In short, Gani would assassinate anyone who Mahathir wants assassinated and he does not care what laws he needs to break and what crimes he needs to commit to achieve what Mahathir wants. And Gani served Mahathir all the way from September 1998 to July 2015. And after July 2015 when he was removed as the Attorney General he continued to serve Mahathir and is still serving Mahathir until today.
Basically, Gani is Mahathir’s attack dog who will be let loose on anyone Mahathir wants eliminated. And Gani’s fellow attack dog is Abu Kassim Mohamed, as it is natural for attack dogs to work in a pack. And lawyer Rosli Dahlan found out the hard way what happens when you cross Gani and Abu Kassim.
And these are the people who Mahathir said two days ago are ‘upright’ people. Mahathir has a very weird interpretation of ‘upright’. Gani and Abu Kassim are as upright as Bentong Kali and Botak Chin. In fact, I was told that Botak Chin at least had certain principles that many people admired and who was regarded as a sort of Robin Hood by many Chinese.
Can you imagine people considering Botak Chin a better person than Gani and Abu Kassim? But then that is the reality and how can people not think so when Gani and Abu Kassim put even Satan to shame?
Mahathir’s interpretation of upright is certainly vey strange. And let me assure you that the Rulers who Mahathir is depending on to sack Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak do not think much of the old man. To the Rulers, Mahathir is just like dirt at the bottom of their shoes.
Today, HRH the Sultan of Johor spoke his mind about Mahathir. Well, a number of Rulers also said some very nasty things about Mahathir, although not openly like the Johor Sultan. One Ruler even personally told me, “Save Malaysia from who? From Mahathir? Why don’t Najib just arrest Mahathir and send him to jail where he can rot and die?”
Yes, those are the Rulers whom Mahathir is so desperately trying to meet so that he can ask them to sack Najib. The Rulers have never forgotten what Mahathir did to them 25 years ago. And that was why today Mahathir posted that ‘apology’ in his blog. He is hoping that by saying he was wrong 25 years ago the Rulers might invite him to tea. The question is will the Rulers even bother to attend Mahathir’s funeral when he dies?
‘AG Gani Patail interfered in MACC work’
(Malaysiakini, 9 April 2015) – Attorney-General Abdul Gani Patail barred the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) from stopping its prosecution against lawyer Rosli Dahlan in the ‘Copgate affair’.
This was revealed in the High Court in Kuala Lumpur today by former MACC Corruption Prevention and Consultative panel member Robert Phang, who said this was related to him by MACC Chief Commissioner Abu Kassim Mohamed (above).
Phang said Abu Kassim told him this during his tenure as a Corruption Prevention and Consultative panel member. He was on the panel from February 24, 2009, till January 27, 2011.
The witness was testifying in the RM50 million suit filed by Rosli against MACC for assault and wrongful detention.
Phang said Rosli had sent him a letter dated November 11, 2010, concerning a charge brought against him by the MACC in the sessions court in Kuala Lumpur in 2007.
“I raised this with Abu Kassim, who informed me that the MACC had no case against Rosli (pic above) in the above prosecution, but he was prevented by the public prosecutor, who is Attorney-General Gani, from discontinuing with the prosecution.
“This is despite (MACC) being aware that the case would result in an acquittal.
“I believe there has been abuse of power, selective prosecution, abuse of prosecutorial discretion, malicious prosecution and prosecutorial misconduct by Gani in the handling of the case against Rosli,” Phang said in reply to questions by Rosli’s counsel Chethan Jethwani.
He also produced a statutory declaration dated August 16, 2012, describing the meeting to that effect.
No minutes from the MACC panel
MACC’s lawyer (Tan Sri) Cecil Abraham, formerly an Operations Review panel member of the MACC, asked Phang why there were no minutes from the panel to prove this. However, Phang maintained that the meeting with Abu Kassim really did take place and he reiterated what the MACC chief told him.
On Monday, Utusan Malaysia made an apology in open court to Rosli for its defamatory article, after the lawyer filed the RM50 million suit against the MACC and the Umno-owned daily.
Rosli was arrested at his office, two days before Hari Raya in 2007, for allegedly not abiding by the MACC’s notice to declare his assets, which he described as vague.
He was handcuffed tightly in front of his partners, and produced in court on the eve of Hari Raya, and a newspaper report said the charge against Rosli was related to an investigation into a RM27 million cop.
Rosli claimed that the action against him came after he helped draft the affidavits for former Home Minister Johari Baharom, former Commercial Crime Investigation Department director Ramli Yusuf and six of his men in the arrest of triad kingpin Goh Cheng Poh.
Goh or Tengku Goh, was caught by Ramli’s men in 2007, following a blitzkrieg by the government against the illegal money laundering syndicate and he was placed under restricted residence in Gua Musang, Kelantan.
Goh filed a habeas corpus application, which was backed by the then inspector-general of police Musa Hassan.
Following the filing of the habeas corpus application, the Attorney-General’s Chambers did not want to draft the affidavit in reply, as required and is normally done, resulting in Rosli to be roped in by Ramli to draft it.
Subsequently, Rosli was charged in the sessions court but was acquitted without his defence being called. Ramli, who the authorities claimed was the “RM27 million cop” was also charged in 2007 but was acquitted.
As a result of this, Rosli and Ramli filed separate suits against Gani for malicious prosecution. Gani tried to strike out the suits, in the High Court and then in the Court of Appeal, and failed both times .
Rosli’s suit against the MACC continues tomorrow before Justice Su Geok Yiam, with a former deputy public prosecutor expected to testify.
