The Kuala Lumpur High Court acquitted and discharged the Pontian MP who was facing charges related to money laundering. This came after he paid a ‘compound’ of RM1.1m.

To examine the case, BFM speaks with Raymon Ram, secretary general of Transparency International Malaysia; Ahmad Fauzi Abdul Hamid, a professor of political science from Universiti Sains Malaysia; and Thomas Fann, chairperson of Bersih 2.0.

They first look at the verdict itself and the fine Ahmad Maslan’s paying and discuss the political repercussions. They also talk about what legal changes may be needed, given that he claims to be a victim of of the lack of political financing laws.
