Minister guarantees safety under Act but does such Act exist in the first place? Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, an MP and head of the PKR, says she is mystified there is no such Witness Protection Act.I am mystified when I read the statement by (Nazri) who claimed there was a "Witness Protection Bill" tabled in Parliament recently.Wassup, Nazri? Read the Bernama's article, Source of Video Recording will be protected as Witness, on his guarantee that Lingam video's witness will "not only be protected by the government but will also be given a new identity and a new face through cosmetic surgery."
There is no evidence of such a crucial bill being tabled in Parliament, and my office had confirmed this fact with the Legal Division of the Parliament, that no such bill had been tabled for a First Reading in the Lower House.
The only bill which was tabled, debated and passed by the Lower House two sessions ago owas the Evidence of Child Witness Bill 2007. - Wan Azizah
[The Bernama story quoted Nazri as referring to the Witness Protection Act, no longer just a Bill].
p.s. Cosmetic surgery? Was he trying to be funny?
