Country's Law Does Not Shield Wrongdoers, Says Najib
The deputy prime minister said a criminal was still a criminal and the law would not let him escape punishment even if he used the influence of certain people.
He told reporters this when asked to comment on a news report Saturday that a high-ranking politician had allegedly received at least RM5 million to assist in the release of several men detained under the Emergency Ordinance.
Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Musa Hassan in confirming the matter, was reported to have said that the suspects linked to the politician were believed to be involved in crimes like vice, prostitution, gangsterism, illegal money lending and extortion.
Najib called on the police to take appropriate action against any party involved in the matter even if the individual was a politician or an influential figure.
"I hope that the police will investigate and take action against those who try to do such things...action can be taken against them, no one is above the law in our country," he said.
