Gani finally opens up, says removal as AG was 'up to PM'

In his first ever remarks over his sudden removal as the attorney-general last year, Abdul Gani Patail today said that it was done in accordance with the government's General Orders.*

This despite a recommendation by a senior member of the Malaysian Bar that Gani should take action against the removal.

Lawyer Syahredzan Johan, during a question and answer session, asked whether there was a breach of the Federal Constitution for removing a person from civil service without being provided a fair hearing.

*Editor's note: Ragunath Kesavan, who moderated the forum has clarified that Gani did not concede that his removal as AG was lawful.
