KUALA LUMPUR: The Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) will seek a request for the extradition of Jamalul Kiram III from the Philippines, should a case be made against him, said Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail.
He said his office had been looking into the matter (extradition) since last week. “The most important thing is that the investigation on the matter by the police must be completed first, a case must be made against a person before a request for extradition,” he told Bernama when contacted here yesterday.
The top man in the prosecution office explained that a case must be made against a person before the AGC decided to take any action, such as extradition or charge a person.
He also advised the public to enable the police to carry out their duties to investigate the case.
“If there is a case, definitely we (AGC) will go for it (request for extradition),” said Abdul Gani when asked to comment on media reports in relation to extraditing Jamalul Kiram for allegedly executing the armed intrusion into Sabah, which left eight policemen dead.
