PETALING JAYA: Former attorney general Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali (pic) should disclose the details and aim of the meeting between fugitive financier Low Tek Jho's representatives and the Attorney General’s Chambers (AGC) in May, says Ramkarpal Singh.

The Bukit Gelugor MP said that the former AG should reveal whether the meeting that he helped arrange between the two parties was with the intention to drop criminal charges against Low by the Malaysian Government.

“Mohamed Apandi said he was approached by Kobre & Kim, from Washington DC, which represents Low, to assist in setting up meetings on their behalf with the AG at the end of May,” he said.

The AGC had, on Saturday (July 16), said that Low had made attempts to settle the charges against him related to the 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MBD) scandal, but all offers tabled were rejected.

“Any attempt to settle Low’s criminal cases in exchange for a sum of money can be a form of corruption and Mohamed Apandi must disclose if he was informed by Low’s representatives that this was Low’s intention,” Ramkarpal said.

He added that Mohamed Apandi, the AG who cleared former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak of any wrongdoing during the height of the 1MDB scandal, should not have engaged with Low’s representatives but instead, should have demanded his surrender.
