A-G: Missing DPP not involved in 1MDB investigations

The prosecutor who mysteriously disappeared last Friday was not involved in investigations pertaining to 1MDB, said the Attorney General.

Tan Sri Apandi Ali in a statement on Monday said that DPP Anthony Kevin Morais was transferred back to the chambers from MACC in July last year, where he assumed the post of deputy head of the appellate and trial division of the AG chambers.

"It is further clarified that he was not involved in any investigations pertaining to the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB)," he said adding that the MACC cases currently handled by Morais were brought along with him for purpose of continuity of prosecution.

Apandi had also urged the public not to speculate on the disappearance of Morais as police investigations are still ongoing.

"The friends and colleagues of Mr. Morais in Chambers share the concern of his family on his reported disappearance. Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this difficult time. The Attorney General’s Chambers is also giving its fullest cooperation to the police in their investigation," he said.

Morais has not been seen since he left his Menara Duta home for work on Friday morning.

A burnt Proton Perdana car, the same make as the one used by Morais was found in Kampung Sungai Samak, Hutan Melintang, Perak on Saturday but police have not confirmed whether it was his.
