MIC treasurer-general Vell Paari has labeled American lawyer Kimberly Motley as ‘rude’ and disrespecting the Malaysian protocol.
In a statement issued today, Vell Paari said the manner which Kimberly attempts to visit Prime Minister Najib Razak is considered not respecting the Malaysian law.
“Can someone that easily meet President Obama or walk into White House.
“Even foreign lawyers have to follow American protocols and stringent requirements before they meet President Obama.
“That also will not guarantee whether we can meet President Obama,” said Vell Paari.
In Malaysia, we adopt three institutions system – executive, parliamentary and judiciary powers that need to be followed and respected.
Even Najib never meddle in the institution powers vested according to constitution, pointed out Vell Paari.
“What is so important for Kimberly to meet Najib whilst Anwar’s case conducted in a fair judicial approach, “ added Vell Paari.
“In a delicate manner, Vell Paari advised Kimberly to return back to her country and not to interfere into Malaysian politics and judicial system.
“Malaysia is a sovereign state that has a structured and fair approach, which we do not require a foreign lawyer to tell us what to do, stressed Vell Paari.
Recently, Kimberly visited the Prime Minister Office to meet Najib however her request was turned down due to his busy schedule.
