Kuala Lumpur, Nov 19 – Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Nancy Shukri has brushed aside a claim that the Attorney General’s Chambers employed two CIA agents and added that the matter was also denied by the department.
“If you are not satisfied with the answer, you are free to visit the A-G’s Chambers,” she said when winding up debate on the Supply Bill 2014 at the Dewan Rakyat here Monday.
She was responding to the issue raised by Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (PKR-Permatang Pauh).
In another development, Nancy said the A-G’s Chambers was not appealing against former transport minister Dr Ling Liong Sik’s acquittal in the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) cheating case as the evidence presented was difficult to rebut.
“If the case is brought to the Appeals Court, it will involve the question of facts again, rather than the question of law. Under such circumstances, rebuttal will be hard to succeed.
“The possibility reversing the finding of the trial judge is rather slim, so the A-G’s Chambers decided not to file an appeal in the PKFZ case,” she said when responding to a question from Lim Kit Siang (DAP-Gelang Patah).
On Oct 25, Dr Ling was acquitted over three charges of cheating the government in relation to the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) land deal in 2002.
