The Attorney-General's Chambers has appointed former Federal Court judge Gopal Sri Ram to head the prosecution team in a case against prominent lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah.
Gopal was roped in by the AGC on a pro bono basis late last month to prepare charges for 1MDB-linked cases.
MACC arrested Shafee at KLIA at 6am this morning. He is expected to face money-laundering charges later today.
Shafee is currently the defence counsel for former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak, who has been charged with money laundering and corruption.
