The office of the Attorney General and Ministry of Justice notes with great concern an unfounded report in the Freedom newspaper regarding alleged criminal investigations in respect of Hon Mai Ahmad Fatty. The Ministry of Justice rejects this report as completely unfounded and insensitive to the family of Hon Mai Ahmad Fatty who must be going through a difficult time. The doors of the Ministry are open to everyone, including the press on all matters pertaining to the Ministry. Therefore it is expected that such goodwill and open door policy will be reciprocated by verifying any report pertaining to the Ministry before publishing same as news.

The Attorney General's Chamber, exists to entrench at the core of the body politic and abiding respect for the Rule of Law and a constant observance of human Rights, to ensure equality of access to Justice and treatment before the Law for all citizens, to promote by law social justice to facilitate the operations of a fair, efficient and transparent legal system and to propagate a culture of due process and legality for these purposes. The Ministry acts as the defender of the constitutional order, the guarantor of the rights and liberties of the citizens, the protector of the state legal interest, the enforcer of the criminal laws, the developer of the human resources of the legal sector and the championing of the rule of law.
