Coroner’s verdict absolves MACC
The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has been “100 per cent” cleared of blame by the coroner’s court when it ruled that a Customs officer’s death in the graftbuster’s Kuala Lumpur office was by misadventure, the commission’s lawyer said today.
Prominent lawyer Datuk Seri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, who was hired to act for the national anti-graft body, beamed as he told reporters his client has been fully absolved by the verdict on the death of Ahmad Sarbaini Mohamed.
However, the prominent lawyer said he agreed with coroner Aizatul Akmal Maharani’s observation that an MACC officer named “Kamal” had been negligent in his duty for leaving the former Customs assistant director alone at its Jalan Cochrane headquarters.
“He should not have left a person for even one second,” Muhammad Shafee said, after the verdict announcement, adding that he would advise MACC to act on the coroner’s remark.
“For sure there’ll be a follow-up on Kamal,” the lawyer told reporters.
MACC assistant superintendent Kamal Awang Besar had testified during the inquest that he left Sarbaini alone in a witness room for three to four minutes before the latter disappeared, as he wanted to get further instructions from investigating officer (IO) Abd Ghani Ali.
Kamal and another colleague with the same rank, Sheikh Niza Khairy Sheikh Mohamad, were both suspended on April 8, after the death.
Nothing surprising. This is the expected result from the UMNO's judge even before the procedure started.
the rayat already predicted the outcome of the inquest is no man is to be blame, lets blame god for this horrible tragedy.
and More MACC funds used to pay Shafee and judge rather than using it to catch crooks. No wonder Shafee has such a huge smile on his face. Any lawyer could have got MACC the win
It simply means the MACC can now carry on taking the law in its own hands. Better change name to the MALAYSIAN ABATTOIR COMMISSION where things alive enter to come out DEAD!
