Police to call Thomas for alleged slanderous book

20210205 195510

Former attorney-general Tommy Thomas will be called soon by the Royal Malaysian Police to give his statement regarding his recently released memoir.

This came after several parties lodged police reports saying that Thomas has allegedly slandered them in his book titled My Story: Justice in the Wilderness.

Deputy Inspector-General of Police Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani said two investigation papers regarding the case will be submitted to the Attorney-General’s Chambers for further investigation.

“The matter will be handed to the investigating officer to take all the necessary actions needed,” he told reporters in an event today.

Former attorney-general Mohamed Apandi Ali is among other who lodged police reports yesterday complaining that Thomas’ book contained slanderous materials against him.

Mohamed Apandi made the report at the Sentul District police headquarters, in the presence of his lawyer Baljit Singh Sidhu.

Former solicitor-general Hanafiah Zakariah has also lodged a police report on Feb 2 against Thomas for what he said a criminal defamation.

In his recently released book, Thomas exposes alleged wrongdoings of many other former high ranked officials including the two former Prime Ministers Najib Razak and Tun Dr Mahathir.

Najib has demanded Thomas an apology and seeks RM10 million in damages, over allegations made against him in the book concerning the murder of Mongolian translator Altantuya Shaariibuu in 2006.

While Dr Mahathir said he regretted appointing Thomas as the AG of the country during his reign as the Prime Minister. – Malaysia Wkrkd News
