Po­lice may call up politi­cians over re­port lodged by Na­jib’s aide

New Straits Times - - NEWS -

ISKANDAR PUTERI: Po­lice will call up sev­eral politi­cians if nec­es­sary af­ter a po­lice re­port was lodged by for­mer prime min­is­ter Datuk Seri Na­jib Razak’s aide at the Sen­tul dis­trict po­lice head­quar­ters on Fri­day.

In­spec­tor-Gen­eral of Po­lice (IGP) Tan Sri Mo­hamad Fuzi Harun said the re­port was made to al­low for ac­tion to be taken against sev­eral politi­cians with re­gards to al­le­ga­tions made.

“Fol­low­ing nor­mal pro­ce­dure, when a re­port is made, we will in­ves­ti­gate.

“The re­port was just lodged.

“If there is a need, we will call up sev­eral politi­cians to have their state­ments recorded,” he said on the side­lines of the force’s Na­tional Sports Day cel­e­bra­tion at Puteri Har­bour Ma­rina here yes­ter­day.

Na­jib’s aide had made a po­lice re­port ask­ing the au­thor­i­ties to re­open the in­ves­ti­ga­tions into al­le­ga­tions of sev­eral mur­der cases.

The re­port called for the po­lice to probe the al­le­ga­tions made against Na­jib, in­clud­ing the mur­ders of Mon­go­lian model Al­tan­tuya Shaari­ibuu and deputy pub­lic prose­cu­tor Datuk An­thony Kevin Mo­rais.

It also stated that po­lice should call DAP ad­viser Lim Kit Siang to pro­vide in­for­ma­tion and ad­di­tional state­ments on the cases.

Ear­lier, Na­jib said the de­ci­sion to ask his aide to lodge a po­lice re­port against him was made af­ter Lim failed to get the au­thor­i­ties to in­ves­ti­gate the al­le­ga­tions.

He said Lim had at­tempted to con­fuse the peo­ple, in­clud­ing DAP sup­port­ers, by claim­ing that he had said there was no need for the cases to be in­ves­ti­gated any­more.

“Since the cases have been thor­oughly in­ves­ti­gated, I urge the po­lice to call (DAP ad­viser) Lim Kit Siang to pro­vide in­for­ma­tion and ad­di­tional state­ments on the said cases.

“If Lim is sin­cere and holds firm to the rule of law and has ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion as he had imag­ined, which will as­sist the course of jus­tice, I rec­om­mend he in­clude the claim and ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion in a statu­tory dec­la­ra­tion so that po­lice can take the mat­ter se­ri­ously.”

“Based on the in­for­ma­tion given, I would like to ask the po­lice to re­open the cases,” the aide was quoted as say­ing in the po­lice re­port.

Fol­low­ing nor­mal pro­ce­dure, when a re­port is made, we will in­ves­ti­gate. The re­port was just lodged.

If there is a need, we will call up sev­eral politi­cians to have their state­ments recorded. TAN SRI MO­HAMAD FUZI HARUN
