The Internal Security Ministry Lodged Corruption Allegations Report Against IGP Tan Sri Musa Hassan

The Internal Security Ministry has lodged a report with the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) on the allegations of corruption involving Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan.

"The matter is under the Prevention Ordinance and I have asked for further clarification from Bukit Aman," he said.

Musa was alleged to have received a bribe of RM2.1 million to release a group of gangsters.

When contacted by Bernama, Mohd Johari said the report to the ACA was lodged after he was not satisfied with several explanations given by the police on the matter."I have no choice... that's why I sent the report to the ACA for investigation," he said.

Asked when the report was made, Mohd Johari said: "A long time ago... when the issue on corruption was raised in the website".

The deputy minister said that following the allegation in the blog, he had tried to get an explanation by asking for several documents from the police, but this was not forthcoming.

He said he had also called up an officer from the D7 Division of Bukit Aman, but the explanation given by the officer concerned was unsatisfactory.

Recently, a blog report (click here and here) had linked Musa with corrupt practices as well as his involvement with a Chinese organised crime syndicate which influenced the IGP in the appointment of senior officers in the Royal Malaysia Police Force.-- BERNAMA
