DAP national chairman Karpal Singh and PKR supremo Anwar Ibrahim today challenged former Permatang Pauh Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate Mazlan Ismail to produce bank account details and cheque numbers which had allegedly implicated the duo of bribing judges and prosecutors.

“We vehemently deny the allegations as they are ridiculous, frivolous and made recklessly.

“I challenge Mazlan to produce the bank accounts and cheque numbers, as well as to reveal the identity of the person who has made the allegations,” said Karpal after lodging a police report with Anwar at the Tropicana police station today.

Mazlan had alleged that he had received more than 6,000 letters sent to his house containing allegations involving Anwar and Karpal.

Saying that he did not know the identity of the sender(s), Mazlan said each letter was eight pages long and contained allegations as well as copies of savings account numbers of various banks and amounts belonging to Anwar.

“I believe the individual wants me to be the go-between to expose Anwar’s dealings with Karpal. The person wants to expose that Anwar had paid more than RM50 million via cheques to Karpal since 2008.

“The person had claimed that besides settling legal fees, the amount was also to allegedly bribe judges and prosecutors,” said Mazlan.

Karpal said Mazlan should have gone to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and the police to lodge reports rather than make his allegations public.
