|Is the IGP trying to protect this WANTED man?|
27/9/16: For some time now the Indian government has been keen to bring in Ananda Krishnan for questioning over some business deals that may have gone rotten in the sub-continent. Last week, a warrant of arrest for Ananda. The fact that Ananda became one of Malaysia's richest men during Dr Mahathir Mohamad's era got a lot of people very interested to his arrest.
Naturally, our reporters asked IGP Khalid Abu Bakar if PDRM was going to help their Indian counterparts. This was what Khalid had to say:
“India’s arrest warrant cannot be enforced in Malaysia. India needs to apply for extradition via mutual legal assistance through the [Attorney-General’s] Chambers.” - IGP: India must get extradition order for billionaire Ananda Krishnan, lieutenant, Malay Mail Online 26/9/16
If you're thinking that I'm thinking that Khalid may be protecting the billionaire, you are wrong. I am totally with the IGP on this one.
Read the last para of the story:
Bloomberg noted that India has previously issued “unrealistic” court orders including in 2014 when its Supreme Court ordered Samsung Electronics Co Chairman Lee Kun-Hee to appear before judges in a still-pending dispute over a US$1.4 million (RM5.7 million) payment.
However, Bloomberg should have noted that "unrealistic" court orders are not confined to just India. The authorities in so-called developed countries are guilty of such high-handed, bullying conduct against non-citizens, including Malaysians!

One case that has been brought to my attention involves a Malaysian businessman, who stands to lose every property that he'd invested in Down Under since 2001 after the Australian authorities - and media - accused him of tax evasion (a claim the businessman denies).
The businessman has filed an unprecedented lawsuit against the Australian government in the Kuala Lumpur courts. The case is up for mention next this Thursday 29/9/16.
Now that ought to be interesting, don't you think?!
