A-G will not prosecute Ibrahim Ali

Yesterday, online news site Free Malaysia Today reported Attorney-General Abdul Gani Patail as saying that he would not prosecute Perkasa’s Ibrahim Ali unless the burning of the Bible took place. [Re: My blogpost on Monday]

"I am not concerned with such statements. I will look at it (the issue) if the act (of burning) is done and if there is an investigation," FMT quotes Gani as saying.

DAP chairperson Karpal Singh (above) blasted Gani for having abdicated his function and duty by saying he is not doing anything until the Bible is burned. He also cited Article 145 (3) of the Federal Constitution and maintained that the AG is bound to take action against Ibrahim. He also called for Ibrahim to be investigated under the Sedition Act and the Penal Code.

Wake up, DAP! Did you really believe that Gani would take action against Perkasa? Tell me, please, who is Perkasa’s patron? Don’t make threats like UMNO – you have more class than that!

Leaders Celtic returned from the SPL two-week winter break and saw off Heart of Midlothian 4-1 at Parkhead on Saturday to stay nine points clear at the summit.

A pass from Adam Matthews ricocheted off Mehdi Taouil, constituting a perfect one-two for the full-back, who squared for Gary Hooper to prod home from close range (2). Celtic claimed a second goal when Kris Commons waltzed past Kevin McHattie before racing past Danny Wilson; his strike was parried by Jamie MacDonald into the path of Georgios Samaras, who simply had to roll the ball into the empty net (12). Hearts did manage to get one back as Jason Holt raced through the middle of the park, bursting into the box and his strike towards goal smacked off of Mulgrew and past Celtic goalie Lukasz Zaluska and into the net (69). Hooper then earned his twentieth goal of the campaign, firing low past the Hearts keeper (85) after a powerful run by Scott Brown down the right. As the game entered injury time substitute Lassad Nouioui put the icing on the cake getting in at the back post to an Emilio Izaguirre cross, to finish off the scoring.
