KUALA LUMPUR: After more than a year of having left government service, former Attorney-General (AG) Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail today conceded that the termination of his services as AG followed the government’s General Orders.
Abdul Gani, whose services was terminated due to health reasons on July 27, 2015, said that the AG was deemed to be a government servant unlike judges and the Auditor-General.
He was responding to a question on the matter by lawyer Syahredzan Johan on the last day of the International Malaysia Law Conference here today.
Abdul Gani, who was one of the speakers in the last session on the third day of the conference entitled “Independence of Institutions in a Democracy“, served as AG for 13 years from 2003.
He was succeeded by former Federal Court judge Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali. --Bernama
