Dr M, Anwar's legal teams to join hands on bid against NSC Act

Former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad has instructed his lawyer to liaise with jailed former opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim’s legal team on the best option to support Anwar’s application to challenge the National Security Council Act 2016 (NSC Act).

Lawyer Haniff Khatri Abdulla told Malaysiakini that he received the instructions yesterday, just one day after Mahathir made a surprise appearance at the High Court in Kuala Lumpur, at a hearing on Anwar’s bid to obtain a temporary injunction to stop the implementation of the NSC Act.

“I am instructed to liaise with Anwar’s lawyers to consider in which way Tun (Mahathir) can contribute to support the challenge to the NSC Act,” Haniff Khatri said.
