AG rapped for repeated failure in conviction in Dharmendran's death
The attorney-general (AG) has been asked to explain why his department has failed to secure a conviction in the custodial death case of N Dharmendran.
This follows another acquittal of the four policemen charged with his murder, this time by the Court of Appeal on Tuesday, April 18, said the family's lawyer N Surendran.
"The police, being the body that carried out the investigation, as well as the AG's Chambers which prosecuted the case, must accept full responsibility for the continuing failure of justice in this case."
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
