(Petaling Jaya, Saturday): Malaysians are not surprised at Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gan Patilís announcement today clearing Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan and former Anti-Corruption Agency director-general Datuk Seri Zulkifli Mat Noor from allegations of wrongdoings, misconduct and corruption.  

Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patailís instructions to the ACA to close their investigations against both men has long being expected despite the seriousness of the charges made by former Sabah ACA Director Mohamad Ramli Abdul Manan early this year against Zulkifli. 

Questions have been raised about the thoroughness and intensity of ACAís investigations on both men in view that they occupy such high positions. Were only their personal bank accounts checked? What about their family members or any possibilities of proxies being used? 

Public doubts about the independence and reliability of ACAís investigations are also unfair to the innocent who have been cleared by the ACA because they will still be subject to innuendos of a cover-up. So long as the government can not restore public confidence in the ability of the ACA to discharge its obligations to combat corruption without fear or favour, the public would only have been surprised if both men were charged. 

DAP calls on the Attorney-General to make public the investigation papers into both men to prove that a thorough probe was conducted in accordance with principles of integrity, transparency and accountability.
