DAP Lim Kit Siang asked the perfect question.
“I have come to know the solicitor-general has concluded that the AG had indeed abused his power to fabricate evidence against the Permatang Pauh MP (Anwar Ibrahim) and I am asking him to resign immediately now. How can we allow a criminal (to serve) as AG? What is happening to Malaysia?” – Kit Siang @ Budget 2009, Parliament.
It’s a 10 year old story but the allegation that Abdul Gani and inspector-general of police Musa Hassan (right) fabricated evidence in Anwar’s trials 10 years agois fresh in most people’s mind. And like all truths or scandals, it wormed its way into a retired cop’s court documents.
According to Mat Zain Ibrahim, who headed the investigation into Anwar’s ‘black eye incident’ in 1998 implied that Abdul Gani had delayed the investigation process and concealed important facts in the case from then AG, the late Mohtar Abdullah. Abdul Gani was a senior deputy public prosecutor at the time.

How can we allow someone so mired in controversies, from corruption to murder, to become next Prime Minister? That, too, is the perfect question, but no one can give us the perfect answer.
