Lawyer: PM's threat to nail critics an abuse of power

Published:  |  Modified:

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak's threat to use the full force of the law against his critics is tantamount to an abuse of power, said human rights lawyer Andrew Khoo.

"Where the prime minister of the day is making such a statement, it implies that law enforcement agencies, which should be independent of political direction and political interference, will be used to go after political opponents," he told Malaysiakini in an e-mail today.
