Controversial blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin says Dr Mahathir Mohamad's attacks against AG Apandi Ali is aimed at painting the latter as PM's “attack dog.”
PETALING JAYA: Controversial blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin has suggested that former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s on-going attack on Attorney-General Apandi Ali may be intended as a pre-emptive strike.
In a blog post yesterday, Raja Petra, also known as RPK, had alleged that the Securities Commission was investigating Mahathir’s second son, Mokhzani.
According to RPK, Mahathir is worried that charges may be preferred against Mokhzani.
“So this is why Mahathir is running down Apandi,” the blogger writes. “He wants to smear Apandi’s reputation and make people think that the Attorney-General is Prime Minister Najib Razak’s attack dog.”
This way, RPK says, if Mokhzani is charged, Mahathir could claim that it was a political conspiracy in very much the same way de facto Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim had claimed after he was convicted of sodomy and sent to prison.
FMT has sought confirmation from the SC regarding the allegations against Mokhzani and is awaiting a response.
