SR reader apologises to senior Aussie lawyer


(Malaysia Outlook) – Below is a letter of apology by a Sarawak Report blog reader to Quintin Rozario, a prominent Malaysian-born litigation lawyer in Brisbane

The apology is made by King Leong, a Malaysian from Penang working in a senior position in a bank in Australia.

The lead to this was the Bernama report written by Azman Ujang quoting Rosario as saying that the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) forfeiture action was flawed.

The Bernama article  published in Malaysia Outlook titled ‘US DOJ action on 1MDB legally flawed, says senior Aussie lawyer’ (Read Here), Rozario alleged that the move by the DOJ to seize assets allegedly linked to 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) is legally flawed. The Malaysian-born Australian lawyer Rozario said by making public statements  alleging that certain Malaysian individuals had laundered and channeled illicit funds into the US, its Attorney-General Loretta Lynch had herself committed “excesses and breaches of natural justice”.

The article was put in Sarawak Report under the title – ‘Top Lawyer in … Brisbane?’ at 2139hrs on Aug 8 with a Kuching dateline.

King Leong had allegedly made certain unsavoury remarks in that Sarawak Report article against Rozario.

A search by MO however, could not find King Leong comments under the article in Sarawak Report.

Perhaps Sarawak Report has withdrawn King Leong’s alleged nasty comments against Rozario.

King Leong published this retraction and apology, which the Sarawak Report apparently has concealed in its Facebook posting on the article by Azman Ujang.
