Nancy: RM1k 'officially' paid to Shafee, not privy to AGC's dealings
As far as Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Nancy Shukri is aware of, senior lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah was only paid an official sum of RM1,000 for his role as prosecutor in the Sodomy II case at the Court of Appeal and Federal Court.
However, the Batang Sadong MP said she could not weigh in on allegations of other payments made to Shafee, as she was not privy to the arrangements made by the Attorney-General’s (AG) Chambers.
Nancy said that her answer to Parliament in 2015 that Shafee had only received RM1,000 was based on information given to her as then-de facto law minister by the AG’s Chambers, and it remains unchanged...
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.
