Bar takes AG to court for not pressing charges against Najib
The Malaysian Bar has filed for a judicial review on attorney-general Mohd Apandi Ali's decision not to press charges against Najib.
In its application, the Bar is seeking orders from the High Court to set aside Apandi's Jan 26 decision exonerating Najib and his instructions to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to close its investigations.
It also wants the court to bar the attorney-general from making any further decisions on the matter, and allow the solicitor-general to make those decisions instead, including on whether or not to prosecute Najib.
It is also seeking court orders to allow the MACC to continue with the investigations previously ordered to be closed by Apandi.
