It’s a conspiracy, lawyer Rosli tells court

(Free Malaysia Today) –  Lawyer Rosli Dahlan told the Sessions Court here today that he was the a victim of conspiracy by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

He said the then Anti-Corruption Agency wanted  to fix him up as he was  representing former Commercial Crime Director Ramli Yusuff, who was accused of various offences in 2007.

Rosli, of Lee Hishamuddin Allen & Gledhill,  has pleaded not guilty to a charge of ignoring a notice to declare his assets before Sessions Court judge Abu Bakar Katar and was testifying on the first day of the hearing.

He said the MACC claimed it gave him the notice because he was regarded as an accomplice to Ramli.
