"Masalahnya sekarang, masyarakat nak dakwa di mahkamah. Betul tak? Betul. Ini yang masyarakat nak. Itu kalau tuan-tuan tanya saya, tuan-tuan put the question to the wrong person.
"Banyak kes-kes yang kita cadangkan kepada DPP, pada pandangan kita ada kes, tapi pada dia, tak cukup bukti. So, what can we do? Itu pada dia, dia lebih arif, the final say tetap pada timbalan pendakwaraya, macam mana? Kita tak ada kuasa." - Datuk Shukri's exact quote. (time code : 42:22)
Below is what 'independent' Malaysiakini reported (as copy pasted by blogger Din Merican) HERE
The A-G Chambers practises selective prosecution, says MACC

The A-G Chambers practises selective prosecution, says MACCby Kuek Ser Kuang Keng@www.malaysiakini.com
The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission investigates all allegations of corruption made to it, but it is the Attorney-General’s Chambers that refuses to file in court some of the cases the MACC deems valid.
“Come, show me which case has not been investigated by MACC. There is not even one case that we did not investigate,” its Deputy Commissioner (Operations) Mohd Shukri Abdull (left) told a forum in Shah Alam today.
“The problem is, many people want the cases to be charged in court, but if you ask me on this issue, you are asking the wrong person. To us, there are valid cases (to be charged in court), but to the Deputy Public Prosecutor, there is no case to answer, so what can we do?” Shukri told the participants, who responded with loud cries of lawan (fight).
Giving the audience a dry smile, Shukri replied: “How to fight? MACC has no (prosecution) power.”
The articulate senior officer who has 27 years of combating graft behind him, was trying his best to convince the excited audience that MACC was free from political interference and doing its best to haul up corrupt politicians to face the music.
The cheers and applause from the floor suggested that his explanation was well received by the hundreds at the forum titled “Political Bribery: Reality or Perception”, organised by Malay daily Sinar Harian.
...and note how 'independent' spin masters have spun Shukri's statement out of context.
Nazri tells ‘weak’ Shukri to stop complaining“The investigating officer may think a case is solid, but the prosecutor may think that there is still weakness,” the Chinese daily quotes the de facto law minister as explaining. - Malaysiakini
Now, scroll up and listen to what Shukri said and how 'independent' Malaysiakini has been pursuing the issue with loads of malice and clear cut Opposition agenda to ridicule vital institutions and the Government in general.
Several Members of parliament took 'independent' news portal Malaysiakini to task in Dewan Rakyat today with Wangsa Maju MP Wee Choo Keong summing them up as practitioners of irresponsible gutter journalism.
Kota Belud MP Abdul Rahman Dahlan started the ball rolling in Parliament by chiding the 'independent' news portal for 'spinning' the SPRM officers statement out of context and spreading such news without any shame or guilt. Rahman Dahlan was present at the Sinar Harian organized forum on political corruption (video above).
p/s Wonder which political party and/or NGOs are funding Malaysiakini to spin Malaysia beyond recognition... even to fellow Malaysians.
