KUALA LUMPUR – The heirs of Allahyarham Tun Razak Hussien will discuss if they want to pursue legal actions against former Attorney-General, Tan Sri Tommy Thomas.
This is related to his new memoir book, My Story: Justice in the Wilderness, which alleged that the 13 May incident did not break out spontaneously, but it was with premeditation or prior planning.
On page 27 of the book, Tommy pointed that the incident was a power coup agenda by Tun Razak.
Nevertheless, according to the former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, they are considering the options of what can be done.
“It is obvious that Tommy Thomas’s book did not only create controversies but it also breached the ethics of a former Attorney-General.
“Secondly, on the issue if his revelation is against the national law such as the Official Secrets Act (OSA) or the Sedition Act or other legal aspects, it is up to the relevant authorities to decide,” he said during an exclusive interview with MalaysiaGazette today.
According to Najib who is also the eldest son to the second Prime Minister of Malaysia, several police reports have been lodged against Tommy.
His writings had tarnished the Attorney-General and legal institution, which is very respected in the country.
Najib added that Tommy’s baseless accusation towards Allahyarham Tun Abdul Razak is too much.
He said that it not only involved the family of Allahyarham Tun Abdul Razak but also the party, UMNO, led by him.
“It is truly too much when he made an accusation towards a person who is no longer around and cannot defend himself.
“Furthermore, he did not provide any solid proof on his accusations.
“We’ll see… it depends. Our family will decide (to take legal actions or not),” he said. –MalaysiaGazette
