KUALA LUMPUR: Inspector-General of Police Mohamad Fuzi Harun has revealed that former Sabah chief minister Musa Aman may have used Brunei as a transit before leaving the country.
He said it was because the Immigration Department had no record that Musa had left the country.
“Some said he was in Brunei but there was no specific location,” he told a press conference at the launch of Op Selamat 13/2018 in conjunction with Hari Raya Aidilfitri at the Telekom Malaysia Convention Centre here today.
Fuzi also said Brunei authorities had been informed of the matter to assist in detecting Musa if he was still in the country.
Earlier, Sabah police commissioner Ramli Din said Musa had left Sabah on May 14.
Police have been trying to record the statement of the former chief minister to assist in investigations into a complaint by Sabah Governor Juhar Mahiruddin to police on May 19 believed to be related to a criminal threat.
In this regard, Immigration director-general Mustafar Ali warned Musa that action would be taken if the Sabah Barisan Nasional chairman had left the country illegally.
