Top cop: Normal for ACA to probe
KUALA LUMPUR: Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan said he was not worried about the Anti-Corruption Agency investigation into allegations of corruption against him.
“Why should I be afraid and worry about it? I did not do anything wrong. It is nothing,” he said yesterday.
He said it was normal for the ACA to investigate a report.
He was speaking after opening a function at the Police College in Cheras in conjunction with the 50th Merdeka celebration.
Earlier in his speech, Musa said police would not tolerate corruption and this scourge threatened the safety and stability of the nation. He said police had stepped up their commitment to provide an honest service to the public.
ACA director-general Datuk Ahmad Said Hamdan said the agency would follow up on the allegations of corruption on the Internet against Musa.
He added that no statement had been taken from Musa.
On Tuesday, Deputy Internal Security Minister Datuk Mohd Johari Baharum told the Dewan Rakyat that he had instructed his officers to lodge a report with the ACA about the allegations against Musa.
Johari said he had also contacted Bukit Aman for an explanation.
He said this in reply to a question from Salahuddin Ayub (Pas-Kubang Kerian).
Salahuddin wanted to know if the ministry was aware of the allegation that Musa had received RM2.1 million for the release of a group of gangsters, and if so, what action had been taken.
Musa had denied the allegations accusing him of graft and having triad links. (NST, 13/7/07)
