Najib’s challenge against prosecutor’s appointment dismissed  

KUALA LUMPUR: Prominent lawyer Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah has filed an application to recuse lead prosecutor Datuk Seri Gopal Sri Ram from heading the prosecution team in his money-laundering case involving RM9.5mil.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Muhammad Izzat Fauzan said the defence had filed a notice of motion and affidavit to cancel the appointment of Sri Ram.

He said the documents had been served on prosecution team.

“The court later fixed Jan 24 as the next case management before High Court judge Justice Collin Lawrence Sequerah,” said Izzat after meeting High Court deputy registrar Farah Azura Mohd Saad in chambers.

On Sept 13, Shafee, 66, applied for Sri Ram, retired Federal Court judge, to disqualify himself from leading the prosecution team.

He said he was filing a formal application to disqualify him because Sri Ram was also the counsel acting for Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim at the Court of Appeal in the civil case pertaining to the same RM9.5mil issue.

Shafee is facing four counts of money laundering involving RM9.5mil that he received from Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

He was accused of receiving proceeds from unlawful activity totalling RM4.3mil on Sept 13, 2013, and RM5.2mil on Feb 17, 2014, via two AmIslamic Bank Bhd cheques issued by the former prime minister.

The cheques were remitted into Shafee’s CIMB Bank account.

He allegedly committed the two offences at CIMB Bank Bhd, J2 & K1, Taman Tunku, Bukit Tunku.

The charges under Section 4(1)(a) of the Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorism Financing Act 2001 carry a fine not exceeding RM5mil or up to five years in jail or both upon conviction.

The fourth charge relates to the same offence involving the RM5.2mil received from Najib.

Both offences were allegedly committed at the Inland Revenue Board at Kompleks Pejabat Kerajaan, Jalan Tuanku Abdul Halim here on March 3, 2015, and June 29, 2015, respectively.

The third and fourth charges come under Section 4(1)(a) of the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activity Act 2001.

    With My Body Under U.S. Control:

    On a trip to NS and PEI – Lisa Ward rented a Cabin. During one evening those who had control of my body – programmed via hypnosis / induced “dream machine” the sexual molestation of Ali and Mia – the exact equivalent of forcing me to watch “Kiddie Porn” of my own daughter’s.

    In the morning, upon wakening, Lisa Ward commented to me “Far Fetched?!?” referring to the same.

    Those in control of my body that evening are Pedophiles and Evil defined.

    I NEED JUSTICE NOW!!!
