Report on Mahathir with ACA

(NST) – Police have referred the report Karpal Singh lodged on May 23 to the Anti-Corruption Agency.

The report was in relation to former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s admission that some judges had lobbied him for promotions.

Karpal had claimed lobbying by judges for promotion or lobbying the prime minister for an appointment as a judge was an offence under the Anti-Corruption Act 1997.

He said Dr Mahathir may have fallen foul of Section 17 of the Act for not having lodged a report about the overtures of judges and others.

Yesterday, Karpal said he had asked in Parliament about the progress of police investigations into his report and was told that the matter was in the hands of the ACA because lobbying was categorised as an abuse of power.
