More DNAAs To Come?

More DNAAs To Come?

Earlier this week, former Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Mansor was given a discharge not amounting to acquittal (DNAA) over charges of receiving RM1 million from businessman Datuk Tan Eng Boon.

This would be the third high-profile withdrawal of charges, following those of Riza Aziz, Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s stepson, as well as 46 charges filed against former Sabah Chief Minister Tan Sri Musa Aman.

Is the latest DNAA a sign that we will see other charges dropped? The Morning Run speaks to Professor James Chin, Professor of Asian Studies at the University of Tasmania, for his thoughts on this and the political situation in Perak.
