Man in London video looks like ex-CM Musa


KOTA KINABALU: “Missing” former Sabah chief minister Tan Sri Musa Aman is believed to have been spotted in London.

A video of the sighting, captioned “ExCM Sabah spotted at St Pancras, London. Rafizi Ramli INVOKE Malaysia,” was uploaded to Facebook by user Az Eem.

The 10-second clip shows a man in a red sweater, a pair of red trousers and donning a cap, standing next to a baggage trolley, in the company of another man and a little boy at St Pancras train station.

It has yet to be determined whether the man in the video is Musa.

Immigratio­n director-general Datuk Seri Mustafar Ali recently said if it was true that the Sabah Barisan Nasional chairman was out of the country, he had broken immigratio­n laws.

He, however, reiterated that there was no record of Musa leaving the country.

Based on immigratio­n records, Musa flew to Kuala Lumpur on May 14 and attended a meeting chaired by Umno vicepresid­ent and former deputy prime minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

His whereabout­s since then are unknown.

Musa is being sought by police in a probe into allegation­s of criminal intimidati­on against the Yang di-Pertua Negeri Tun Juhar Mahiruddin.

Investigat­ors from the Malaysian AntiCorrup­tion Commission (MACC) visited Musa’s home in Luyang as part of a probe into Parti Solidariti Tanah Airku (Star) and its formation of an alliance with Sabah BN after the 14th General Election.

MACC had gone to Musa’s house, but was not able to enter as there was no one home.

In a statement issued through his lawyer, Zahir Shah, Musa said MACC officers were allowed to enter his house to conduct their investigat­ions.

In Penampang, Sabah Police Commission­er Datuk Ramli Din said police would wait for Musa to come forward.

He said police had contacted Musa via a few channels and had asked him to return home.

“There is no need to seek Interpol’s help to locate him as it is not that serious.

“We can wait for him,” he said after the closing of the state-level Pesta Kaamatan at the Hongkod Koisaan or Kadazandus­un and Murut Cultural Associatio­n building here.

Meanwhile, fugitive Datuk Seri Jamal Yunos is believed to have fled to Indonesia, two days after going missing from the Ampang Specialist Hospital while under police remand.

According to a report by Sin Chew Daily, the Sungai Besar Umno division chief absconded on May 27 to the Indonesian island of Pulau Karimun, which is 10km off the coast of southweste­rn Johor.

Selangor Criminal Investigat­ion Department chief Fadzil Ahmat declined to confirm the report, saying only that police were doing all they could to locate Jamal and had requested him to be blackliste­d by the Immigratio­n Department.

Authoritie­s are seeking an arrest warrant for the Red Shirts leader, who is wanted to facilitate investigat­ions into nine criminal cases.
