IGP to let MACC probe MyWatch’s allegations


PETALING JAYA: Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar is keeping mum on the allegations levelled against him by Malaysian Crime Watch (MyWatch) Chairman R Sri Sanjeevan.

Instead, he prefers to leave the matter in the hands of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

“I will not comment. Let the MACC investigate,” he said to FMT in a text message this evening.

Sanjeevan earlier today lodged a report with the MACC claiming that there may have been instances of corruption and power abuse by Khalid, whose brother he accused of being a director of Unggul Shooting Academy.

He wanted MACC to investigate the approval of the licence to the company and if it had been awarded any government contracts.

To back up his allegations, Sanjeevan cited a company registration document dropped at his office by an unidentified individual.

In it, it was stated that Khalid’s brother, Abdullah Abu Bakar, is one of the company’s five directors.

The academy was said to have a paid-up capital of RM400,000 and was registered on Nov 1, 2013, six months after Khalid was made the nation’s top cop.

He also cited a previous report by Sarawak Report that Khalid’s daughter and his brother-in-law co-owned Nilai Arms and Ammunitions Sdn Bhd, a company selling firearms.

“His daughter is allegedly selling firearms, while his brother is training people how to use firearms,” said Sanjeevan, adding that MACC should look into whether the two companies were linked to each other.
