PUTRAJAYA: MyWatch chairman R Sri Sanjeevan today lodged a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), urging them to probe another firearm-related company purportedly linked to Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar.
Sanjeevan produced documents from the Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM) which showed Khalid’s brother Abdullah Abu Bakar, as one of four directors of the academy.
“I have passed a set of this SSM document to the MACC. In it, it is stated that the academy has a paid-up capital of RM400,000.
“It was registered on Nov 1, 2013 – six months after Khalid was appointed the nation’s top cop,” he told reporters after lodging the report.
Sanjeevan said he wants the MACC to investigate if Khalid himself had issued the company a license to operate, and whether the academy had received any government contract.
He 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 the MACC should look into whether the two companies were linked to each other.
Sanjeevan said his complaint should be taken seriously, as shooting cases had noticeably increased in number since Khalid was appointed IGP.
According to Sanjeevan, he would lodge another report with the MACC against Khalid, next week.
Khalid has denied any conflict of interest with his daughter owning the firearms company and he being the IGP. Khalid also said his daughter’s company had been set up before he became the IGP.
He also said he had prohibited the firm from applying for government tenders.
