THREE of the four investigation papers in connection with the Datuk V.K. Lingam video clip case have been closed, and of the three, two have been classified “no further action” due to insufficient evidence, said Datuk Seri Nazri Abd Aziz.
The Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department said the then Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) opened four investigation papers, of which three were sent to the Attorney-General’s Chambers.
Another paper was with the ACA, he said.
Of the three sent to the Attorney-General, two were classified under “no further action” due to insufficient evidence while the remaining one was still awaiting further investigation.
The director of the prosecution division of the ACA had also classified the paper under “no further action.”
“This is also because there was insufficient evidence to prosecute under the then ACA Act,” said Nazri in his written reply to Wee Choo Keong (PKR – Wangsa Maju).
A Royal Commission of Inquiry was conducted into Lingam’s video case which showed the prominent lawyer purportedly involved in brokering a deal that manipulated the appointment of judges.
The video implicated five people including Lingam, former Chief Justices Tun Eusoff Chin and Tun Ahmad Fairuz Sheikh Abdul Halim, tycoon Tan Sri Vincent Tan and the then Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor who was in charge of legal affairs.
