In a released statement, Thomas stated as is usual in criminal matters, attorneys of the accused submitted written representations to the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) to rethink the decision to charge. He said that “Having studied the representations and the probe papers, reviewing the relevant provision and discussion with the case officers, I remember reducing the charges. Getting representations from attorneys and arraigned, and reducing or dropping charges thereafter are common occurrences in AGC.”
He further added that he could not provide any further details of the case, “I have no access to any documents, record or file maintained by those who prepared the probe papers.” This comes after Twitter account Edisi Siasat, which recently changed its name to Edisi Khas, asserted that whilst the son of Tan was apprehended under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act for being engaged in a very large quantity of drugs, the case was classified as an NFA (no further action) by Thomas.

Thomas stated that the accusation that he was corrupt in the context of the Edisi Khas post simply meant that he was bribed. He stated that “Malaysians must rest claimed that throughout my professional career and in my personal life, I have never ever paid a bribe. At the time of my stint as a public officer, I never got a bribe. Integrity, truth, and honesty are precious values to me. To be sure, they are sacrosanct, and I have never compromised them. The accusation that I was bribed when I took this decision is for that reason vigorously rejected.”
He also stated that he had never known Tan before his appointment and neither had he acted for him or any of his firms, adding he had also not represented the tycoon since he came back to practice after he quit as lawyer-general. “The timing and loathsomeness of this attack on my integrity are connected to the Roger Ng (1MDB) trail that just commenced in New York, engaging fraudulent use of finances belonging to Malaysia.
