An internal investigation by the judiciary into an explosive affidavit by a Court of Appeal judge, which claimed judicial interference was halted due to the police conducting its own investigation, says the Chief Justice.

Tan Sri Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat said the police had interviewed members of the judiciary on the matter.

The top judge said that when hosting the press at her office here on Friday (Jan 3), adding that she had written to lawyer Sangeet Kaur Deo - the daughter of the late DAP stalwart Karpal Singh - that she could not continue the investigation as she had a conflict of interest.
