Will Najib present White Paper to answer two questions thrown up in the public domain in the past two days – was there a charge sheet in the AG’s office last July to indict Najib for corruption and did the then AG brief the DPM at the time about Najib’s “corruption” wrong doing?

Two questions that arose directly from Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s statement on Saturday and Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department rebuttal the same day await official confirmation or denial.

Firstly, was there a charge sheet in the Attorney-General’s Chambers before the Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail was summarily sacked on July 27 which would have indicted the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak for corruption in the RM42 million SRC International scandal?

Secondly, whether the Attorney-General Tan Sri Gani Patail at the time had briefed the then Deputy Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, about Najib’s “corruption” wrongdoing, which precipitated the “purges” by Najib on July 28, involving the sacking of the Deputy Prime Minister, a Senior UMNO Cabinet Minister and the Attorney-General as well as other grave reprecussions undermining the Rule of Law in the country.

A third question that would arise, if the answer to the first question is in the positive, is why the new Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamad Apandi Ali had deliberately told a lie when he denied the existence of the charge sheet in a statement on July 31?

The Prime Minister should present a White Paper when Parliament reconvenes on March 7 to explain to MPs and the nation the events of July last year, whether the AG’s Chambers had prepared a charge sheet last July to indict the Prime Minister for corruption, whether the then Attorney-General had brief the Deputy Prime Minister about his “corruption” wrongdoing and why the new Attorney-General Apandi had exonerated him of any corruption wrongdoing in the light of this background.
