PETALING JAYA，Oct 22: Former prime minister Najib Razak has called on the government to bring a minister to court for flouting Covid-19 SOPs after police said no further action (NFA) would be taken against him for not undergoing home quarantine upon returning from Turkey in July.
The Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) and Bukit Aman CID chief Huzir Mohamed yesterday said the decision not to take further action against Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister Mohd Khairuddin Aman Razali was because he had not been issued the form to undergo quarantine upon returning to the country.
“As I have suggested before, the Perikatan Nasional (PN) government should rescind the NFA and continue its charges against the PAS minister as many consider it to be unfair and a double standard.
“Don’t gift Pakatan Harapan with free political modal. Let the judge decide,” said Najib in a Facebook post today.
He was responding to a news report in which DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang tied Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s move to reaffirm his party’s support for PN with the decision not to prosecute Khairuddin.
Najib also said the classification of NFA on cases during PH government’s time in power should be reviewed.
“The PN government should also rescind the NFA during PH’s time and continue with the court charges for Bank Negara Malaysia’s RM33 billion foreign exchange scandal and the (alleged) embezzlement of RM1.5 billion of Air Sabah funds by Shafie Apdal.
“That’s only fair. The NFAs for these three cases should be rescinded,” he said.
Yesterday, the AGC said Khairuddin was not issued a home surveillance order by the health ministry officer at the airport.
