Thomas was speaking after he led the prosecution team in the case against former prime minister Najib Razak, who was charged with three counts of criminal breach of trust and one count of abuse of power in connection with a transaction involving SRC International, a former unit of 1MDB.
He pleaded not guilty to all charges. "It'd be even better if the protestors can get a summon each since their faces are everywhere on Facebook", a netizen said. An aide declined to respond to allegations there was meddling and a cover-up.
They say a figure called "Malaysian Official 1" was given large sums of money from 1MDB. "This is something I had expected, because that is the intent of the new government", he said. He did not name these witnesses because some are still being sought.
Johor Bahru division chief Shahrir Samad also weighed in on Mr Najib's arrest.
"So, @NajibRazak becomes the first ever former prime minister to be arrested".
And it wasn't just at the anti-corruption agency that the heat was intense.

Since his loss at the polls to mentor-turned-foe Mahathir Mohamad, Najib has been barred from leaving the country and had millions of dollars of items seized from properties linked to him as part of the probe into 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB). The fund is also being investigated by several other countries.
The charges relate to funds that allegedly went from SRC International into Najib's personal bank account, but are only a fraction of the total amount allegedly misappropriated from 1MDB.
In the prosecution initiated about two months after Najib's Barisan Nasional coalition lost federal power, new Attorney General (AG) Tommy Thomas is the lead prosecutor and is accompanied today by 11 deputies. He also removed deputy PM Muhyiddin Yassin the same month after he had criticised Mr Najib over his handling of the scandal.
Prior to this, it was not known who will represent Najib who has already parted ways with two separate legal teams.
"We are law-abiding; we follow the rule of law". It "was coming from all sides".

Malaysian Bar president George Varughese said the instruction to arrest Mr Najib can only come from either the MACC or the police.
He said some witnesses in that probe could not be found because they were being held at police headquarters.

Officials close to the case described the transfer of the funds as a very strong "open-and-shut" case against Mr Najib, The Star reported. He denied there had been intimidation. "All transactions were between local companies and banks", said a source.
"Decisions were made at PMO [prime minister's office]".
Checks and balances were ignored. "We believe we have a strong prima facie case", he said.
