KUALA LUMPUR, 13 Nov 2008: Bukit Gelugor Member of Parliament Karpal Singh today lodged a police report on the statement by Chief Justice Tan Sri Zaki Azmi that Zaki had bribed court staff during his days as a lawyer.
Karpal lodged the report at the Dang Wangi police station at 3pm.
He said that Azmi’s statement, which was reported in the New Straits Times on 8 Nov, exposed him to prosecution under Section 4(b) of the Prevention of Corruption Act 1961.
