The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission recently said it was probing Court of Appeal judge Nazlan Mohd Ghazali over claims that he had unexplained wealth. The judge convicted former prime minister Najib Razak in his RM42 million SRC International case.
Fugitive blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin, who published an article about the investigation, also linked the money to Low Taek Jho, or Jho Low, the businessman said to be the mastermind behind the 1MDB scandal.
Nazlan has since lodged a police report over the allegations, saying they were “false, baseless and malicious” and aimed at undermining his credibility as a judge.
On May 4, six former Bar presidents signed a petition urging the current office bearers to hold a “walk for justice” in a bid to voice out against claims of “intimidation” of the judiciary. - FMT
