Was AG TS Gani Patail Termination Another Move To Protect DS Najib

It seems it came as a shock to even TS Abdul Gani Patail to hear that he has been 'terminated' or in ither words SACKED from his Attorney General position as according to the Malay Mail:

"Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail today expressed ignorance over the announcement that his service as Attorney-General has been discontinued due to health reasons." - See more at: http://www.themalaymailonline.com/malaysia/article/gani-says-in-the-dark-over-sudden-termination#sthash.E2H0vhzA.qDZa2eOp.dpuf

And so why was TS Gani Patail sacked so quickly and unceremoniously when if he was really ill, it would make more sense for him to be allowed to graciously resign from the job with honour? Is it just me or does it not seen suspicious that TS Gani Patail is one of the 4 key senior government officers charged with investigating the 1MDB scandal or more pointedly, the Prime Minister DS Najib's involvement in it!

It should also be noted that the former AG is also famously hated by a section of the Malaysian population for his guts in persistently pursuing the much more popular former Deputy PM Anwar Ibrahim. If he was so determined to prosecute Anwar Ibrahim before, is it not likely that he has been pursuing the 1MDB investigation with just as much zeal? Is it possible that that he is bejng removed as he has shown himself now to be a threat to DS Najib's continuation as PM?

This Blogger admits this is speculation, but it is not wild, it is educated and informed speculation. Surely this shows exactly why DS Najib should step aside until the 1MDB scandal is fully investigated and resolved with his prosecution of exoneration. At least take leave as Prime Minister! Otherwise, any significant event such as the above will raise questions to continue to undermine DS Najib's leadership...

Not to protect Najib

But to protect integrity

Not many people know what he(AG) has done.

pray tell what he has done then? if he has been sacked for a lack of integrity please tell us what he has done? enlighten the rakyat..

The billion dollar question is not whether the PM still has the support of UMNO. It is whether he has the support of the rakyat @ unenlightened ones @ voters ? UMNO will go to the grave without the support of the people, contrary to what the people in UMNO would like to believe . Not everything in this world is about money.

If he's hell bent on ensuring anwar serve his time in jail, then he would certainly not going to appeal the not guilty verdict on the final minutes. Please do more research, will ya

Anon... Gani Patail's surprise reluctance to go the final mile in convicting Anwar was in my view actually for 2 reasons. 1st I believe was due to his finding out DS Najib was trying to patch things up politically with Anwar. 2nd was as after failing earlier, he was unsure of being able to secure a win with his team of prosecutors - something which was resolved by bringing in Datuk Shafee Abdullah as a DPP just to prosecute Anwar.

Interesting to note that Datuk Shafee Abdullah was not chosen to be the next AG, perhaps as DS Najib feared he would be even more tenacious and effective in pursuing the 1MDB case... better appoint an unknown judge with UMNO connections like Apandi then to the AG Chambers!
