CLJ 2020 Volume 8 (Parts 3 - 6)

In a charge against a public officer for using his office or position for gratification under s. 23(1) of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2009, the fact that the alleged gratification had only materialised long after the corrupt act will not have any adverse consequence on the prosecution's case, and offers no basis for the argument that such gratification cannot amount to "gratification" as spoken of or intended by the subsection. Hence, where the sitting Prime Minister and Minister of Finance of the country is accused under s. 23(1) of participating in a Cabinet decision to provide a guarantee to a Government-linked company in which he has an interest for a loan taken by the latter, and the monetary gratification was remitted by the company to the Prime Minister's bank accounts some three years later, the time lapse is patently inconsequential to the finding of corrupt practice on the accused's part; it must be so as the law considers the sequence of events that transpired between the decision and the sight or appearance of gratification as a single transaction.

The issue of corruptly receiving gratification under s. 23(1) aside, the fact that the accused, as Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, was having an overarching control and authority over the company can only mean that he is for all intents and purposes a director and shadow director of the company, and thus "entrusted with dominion" over the property of the company. What may spring forth from this is that, in so accepting the gratification, and subsequently utilising the same for his own benefit, the Prime Minister could have misappropriated or converted the company's property, and be also guilty of criminal breach of trust under s. 409 of the Penal code. Indeed, having received the gratification, and upon proof of the commission of the offences under s. 23(1) and s. 409, a further offence of money laundering under s. 4(1) of the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001 could equally have materialised if the prosecution could additionally prove, firstly, that the gratification received were proceeds of an unlawful activity, and secondly that the accused knew or ought to have known the (unlawful) source of the funds.
PP v. Dato' Sri Mohd Najib Hj Abd Razak [2020] 8 CLJ 319 [HC]

    ANALYSIS ON THE DOCTRINE OF NON-CONVENIENCE AND THE MALAYSIAN POSITION

    by
    Nur Syakirah Binti Mohd Adnan*

    ABSTRACT

    This article analyses two interrelated aspects of the English Court's jurisdiction over an action containing foreign elements. The first is the exercise of the Court's discretion to grant a stay of English proceedings where jurisdiction has been founded as of right. Jurisdiction is so founded where, for example, a writ is served on the defendant who is present within the jurisdiction at the time of the service of the writ. The second is the exercise of the Court's discretion to grant leave to serve a writ out of the jurisdiction under RSC Order II Rule 1(l). Such leave will be required if the defendant is not within the jurisdiction at the time of service.

    INTRODUCTION

    The key changes in the information society are the breakthroughs in information processing, storage, and transmission which have led to the application of information technology in virtually all corners of society and the convergence of telecommunications and computing. The information society has changed radically with the integrated network structure, which has transformed the communications networks into seamless global webs of digital information exchange and the resultant globalization of financial markets and consequent interdependence of capital flows between the liberal markets. Accordingly, personal data can now be shared across countries and continents with the rapid development in the security of the global electronic communication system. The speed, capacity, versatility, and flexibility of computers have facilitated the maintenance and growth of extensive record systems, making data accessible from distant points and transferable on a scale hardly conceivable for manual records (Munir, 1999).
