Former Malaysian Bar president Ragunath Kesavan said today in the event of any investigation is conducted against the attorney-general as chief prosecutor, the solicitor-general, who is second in command in the Attorney-General's Chambers, can decide whether to prosecute or not.

If the decision to prosecute the AG is made, any deputy public prosecutor (DPP) is competent to handle the task, Ragunath said.
