From the Singapore Straits Times:
PETALING JAYA (ASIA NEWS NETWORK/ THE STAR) – The Swiss prosecutors have removed from their official website an unendorsed document linking two Malaysians to corruption charges involving French company Alstom.
Former Perlis Mentri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Pawanteh said his lawyer in Switzerland had affirmed the matter.
‘It was high time they removed the offending document because it is unjust to release such unverified information without giving those implicated a chance to be heard,’ he said.
Mr Abdul Hamid said the Swiss court had never summoned him to testify during the Alstom trial.
Abdul Hamid has denied receiving kickbacks. See this Star report.
