KUALA LUMPUR: Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail says that he has been in good health since leaving the Attorney-General's Chambers.

Responding to queries during a question-and-answer session at the Malaysian Bar Council's "Sosma – Wolf in Sheep's Clothing" forum here on Tuesday, he said: "I am OK. I am on dialysis three times a week. I still read. I still work."

"But I am not in the office. I do work like look after my grandchildren, and sometimes, entertaining my good friends around here – or rather they are entertaining me. I am functioning normally," he added.

The former A-G said that he was on dialysis while he was in office as Attorney-General.

"When I was sitting in the office, I was already on dialysis. I am okay. I am all right," said Abdul Gani.

Tuesday's event marked his first public function since his retirement as Attorney-General in July.

On July 27, Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Dr Ali Hamsa announced that Abdul Gani’s tenure as A-G had been terminated due to health reasons.

He continued to serve as a judicial and legal service officer until his mandatory retirement on Oct 6.

He was replaced as A-G by former Federal Court judge Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali.
