Latheefa appointment: Mahathir is after a PH Minister, not Anwar

Mahathir already has the people he needs at the highest rungs in the police force and judiciary and only needs one of his own men to replace Tommy Thomas as Attorney General before he can afford to put a spoke in Anwar’s wheels. Source (pic): TTF

Speculation is rife that the appointment of Lawyers for Liberty co-founder Latheefa Koya by Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is to dig up the dirt on Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim in a bid to put the PKR president on the witness’ stand and send him to jail.

But that is not the case.

A very senior government Minister is said to be the target, and he is someone Tun Daim Zainuddin can no longer tolerate and wants put in the witness’ box for a number of reasons.


PETALING JAYA: Speculation is rife that the appointment of Lawyers for Liberty co-founder Latheefa Koya by Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is to dig up the dirt on Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim in a bid to put the PKR president on the witness’ stand and send him to jail.

But that is not the case.

Mahathir already has the people he needs at the highest rungs in the police force and judiciary and only needs one of his own men to replace Tommy Thomas as Attorney General before he can afford to put a spoke in Anwar’s wheels.


It follows, the evidence that is set to do Anwar in has nothing to do with corruption or bribery, isn’t likely to involve Latheefa or the MACC but will most certainly see the replacement of Thomas as Attorney General.

Latheefa’s appointment is said to have been incentivised by something of an entirely different nature, having to do with a corruption scandal that was previously brushed aside by Thomas and former Chief Justice Richard Malanjum.

A very important government Minister is said to be the target, and he is someone Tun Daim Zainuddin can no longer tolerate and wants put in the witness’ box for a number of reasons.

Dato’ Seri Mohd Shukri Abdull was incapacitated to do anything about that Minister because the party from which the Minister helms had its grip on Shukri’s neck owing to two previous conspiracies several personnel in the MACC linked to Shukri were said to be involved in.

Latheefa is linked to Daim by virtue of her associations with Messrs Daim & Gamany, a law firm co-founded by Daim where he began his profession as a private legal practitioner.

Daim is currently listed as the 14th most senior lawyer in Malaysia, having been admitted to the Malayan Bar on the 27thof February, 1961.

According to the Bar Council website, he obtained his certificate to practise law on the 12thof January the same year.
