ISKANDAR PUTERI: In­ves­ti­ga­tions will be car­ried out in con­nec­tion with a po­lice re­port lodged by an as­sis­tant of Datuk Seri Na­jib Tun Razak over al­le­ga­tions against the for­mer pre­mier.

In­spec­tor­Gen­eral of Po­lice Tan Sri Mo­hamad Fuzi Harun said that if nec­es­sary, the po­lice would also call up the politi­cian who made the al­le­ga­tions.

He said the re­port was lodged at the Sen­tul po­lice dis­trict head­quar­ters.

“When a re­port is lodged, we will in­ves­ti­gate be­cause that is the nor­mal pro­ce­dure. We will take the nec­es­sary ac­tion,” he said af­ter launch­ing the po­lice­level Na­tional

Sports Day at Puteri Har­bour yes­ter­day.

Na­jib’s as­sis­tant had lodged the re­port on Fri­day ask­ing the po­lice to call up DAP stal­wart Lim Kit Siang to give his state­ment over the al­lega­ tions he made con­nect­ing Na­jib to sev­eral high­pro­file mur­der cases.

The re­port also stated that if in­ves­ti­ga­tions showed that Na­jib was in­no­cent, the as­sis­tant wanted his em­ployer’s name to be cleared and asked the po­lice to take ac­tion against Lim, who is also the Iskandar Puteri MP.

Last Thurs­day, Na­jib in a Face­book post­ing di­rected his as­sis­tant to make a re­port to al­low po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tions to be car­ried out in­volv­ing the al­le­ga­tions of his in­volve­ment in the mur­ders of Arab­Malaysia Bank De­vel­op­ment Bank founder Hus­sain Ah­mad Na­jadi, Mon­go­lian model Al­tan­tuya Shaari­ibuu, Teoh Beng Hock and deputy pub­lic prose­cu­tor Datuk An­thony Kevin Mo­rais.

Lim and Na­jib had en­gaged in a pub­lic tiff over the mat­ter for sev­eral weeks since Lim urged the govern­ment to re­con­sider open­ing fresh in­ves­ti­ga­tions into these high­pro­file mur­ders.

Pre­vi­ously, Lim in his blog had said that Na­jib did not kill Teoh but that his ad­min­is­tra­tion must be held re­spon­si­ble for Teoh’s death.

Na­jib said the Pakatan Hara­pan govern­ment’s re­fusal to con­duct spe­cial in­ves­ti­ga­tions into these high­pro­file cases had vin­di­cated him over the slan­der­ous ac­cu­sa­tions that had plagued his lead­er­ship over the pre­vi­ous years.

When a re­port is lodged, we will in­ves­ti­gate be­cause that is the nor­mal pro­ce­dure. Tan Sri Mo­hamad Fuzi Harun
