Kuala Lumpur: Former Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad has offered to be named as a witness in court if needed, over a Gombak voter’s legal lawsuit against MP Mohammed Azmin Ali over the alleged breach and deceit of judiciary duty, which caused the Pakatan Harapan government to collapse in February 2020.
Earlier, the suit, filed by 10 voters, claim that Azmin Ali made false representation and deceit them in the 14th general election campaign to gain their support.
They accused him of breaching his judiciary power, as the voters bestowed their trust on him and chose him as their elected representative.
In a statement, Dr M promised to help and present himself as a witness if needed in court. He said that court is the best available forum to establish the validity of accusations presented by plaintiffs.
He said that people questioning and accusing him show how local politics and constituents have matured. Voters have filed their suit at the High Court in Kuala Lumpur through lawyer Yohendra Nadarajan.
