Dr M: Will MACC probe reach judges or will Apandi be the judge?

Former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad is sceptical whether the MACC's findings on SRC International and the RM2.6 billion donation received by Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak will ever be brought to court.

"Attorney-general (Mohamed Apandi Ali) says he would act without fear or favour. But he requires time as the report piles up to his height. How much time?

"Or is the AG to determine whether there is a case for the judges to judge or will he be the judge and dismiss the case as indeed he had done with the Bank Negara report," Mahathir wrote in his blog post today.

Apandi had last year decided that there would be no further action on Bank Negara's report on 1MDB.

On Dec 31, MACC announced it had submitted three investigation papers to the AG, two related to the probe on SRC International and another on the RM2.6 billion.

This is not the first time Mahathir had expressed skepticism on whether Apandi will pursue action on the MACC’s findings.

Apandi has dismissed this as an attempt to apply reverse psychology against him.

He stressed that he would not be pressured and that he would work according to the law.
