Najib to find out more details on allegations against IGP
PEKAN, July 1 - The Deputy Prime Minister’s office will find out more details on allegations that Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan accepted bribes and of his alleged involvement with underworld figures.
Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said he was not aware of the postings on a website involving the country’s top police officer.
“I don’t know about the allegations. Let me check,” he told reporters after attending the ground-breaking ceremony of the Universiti Malaysia Pahang’s permanent campus in Kuala Pahang, near here, yesterday.
On Saturday, Deputy Internal Security Minister Datuk Mohd Johari Baharom was quoted by a local Malay daily as having said that the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) was free to investigate Musa over the allegations.
He said ministry secretary-general Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Yusoff would monitor developments.
Mohd Johari added that he too had been investigated over allegations of accepting RM5mil in bribes to release three men detained under the Emergency Ordinance.
The ACA has since completed investigations into Mohd Johari’s case and submitted its findings to the Attorney-General’s Chambers.
On a separate matter, Najib said he hoped all Umno divisional meetings would proceed smoothly.
He said he was optimistic about this, based on recently concluded branch meetings which had gone on uninterrupted in accordance with the party’s constitution.
“We hope that there will not be any unpleasant episode that requires the Umno disciplinary board to take action,” he said. theStarOnline
