Veteran lawyer Param Cumaraswamy holds the opinion that attorney-general Mohamed Apandi Ali does not hold the power to direct an investigating agency, such as the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, to close its files.

Apandi should be more transparent, considering the prevailing public perception on the investigations into the funds in Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s personal bank accounts, Param, a former United Nations special rapporteur for the Independence of Judges and Lawyers, told Malaysiakini today.
