MACC probe into judge Nazlan did not follow protocol, Federal Court rules

THE Federal Court ruled today that Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) probe into Court of Appeal judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali was done without regard for judicial independence and protocols.

A seven-member panel of the court, led by Chief Justice Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat said the manner in which the investigation was conducted, which included publicising it through a press statement, did not appear to preserve confidence in the judiciary’s independence.
