TOKYO: It is not so easy to arrest former prime minister Najib Razak as there isn`t any strong evidence yet.
Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad said that today when answering a question at a dinner meeting with Malaysians living in Japan.
“People are waiting – when are we going to arrest (Datuk Seri) Najib Tun Razak?
“It’s not so easy. We have to find evidence that will stand up in court.
“If the evidence is not strong and he is not found guilty by the court, then all the things we have done and said will be questioned by the people,” he said
He added many people had ‘disappeared’ lately, including Jamal Yunos.
“But we hope that before they disappear, we can punish them accordingly to the law,” he said.
Dr.Mahathir is attending the 24th International Conference on the Future of Asia or Nikkei Conference for two days beginning today until Jun 12. He is accompanied by his wife Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah Ali and Foreign Ministry officials.
