GEORGE TOWN: The Attorney-General’s (A-G) Chambers has not closed investigation involving businesswoman Phang Li Koon (pic).

“Furthermore, the AG’s office would like to stress that we have never made any final decisions involving this case.

“It is currently under investigation,” said Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali in a press statement yesterday evening, over the case involving a statutory declaration by Phang concerning the purchase of a bungalow by Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.

Earlier in the day, Penang police chief Datuk Abdul Ghafar Rajab said he was informed by the Deputy Public Prosecutor’s office that the case was closed two or three days ago.

“The DPP said the A-G has come to this decision.

“It has been classified as No Further Action (NFA),” he told a press conference after the state police monthly gathering at the state police headquarters yesterday.

Abdul Ghafar said this meant that Phang will not be charged under Section 199 of the Penal Code.
