Riza Aziz case: Sans explanation, unbecoming of minister to label Dr M 'hypocrite'

Modified 17 May 2020, 6:06 am

A DAP lawmaker has said that de facto law minister Takiyuddin Hassan should have explained the situation surrounding film producer Riza Aziz’s criminal charges to the people instead of calling former prime minister Dr Mahatir Mohamad a “hypocrite” for questioning the deal.

Bukit Gelugor MP Ramkarpal Singh said at the time Mahathir commented on the conditional dismissal granted to Riza, there had yet to be any explanation from the public prosecutor on the case.
