KOTA KINABALU: Police are focused on getting former chief minister Musa Aman back in the country and have not ruled out the possibility that his son, Sipitang MP Yamani Hafez Musa, may be with him in London.

“We have taken various actions to resolve this issue. But I don’t wish to comment further on this as it has been touched on by the inspector-general of police,” said Sabah police chief Ramli Din.

“However, investigations are ongoing,” he said during his working visit to the police headquarters in Sabah’s Kudat northern district.

Yamani was not present for the swearing-in ceremony in Parliament on Monday.

De facto law minister VK Liew had yesterday said the government had not received any letter from Yamani to explain his absence at the swearing-in ceremony.

Liew also issued a warning that MPs might have their seats vacated if they failed to be sworn in within six months of the first Parliament sitting.

“This is provided for under Article 59 of the Federal Constitution,” he said.

Musa had last month issued a statement through his lawyers, denying that he was on the run and that he had left the country legally for UK to seek medical treatment and for “personal reasons”.

Police had asked Musa to return home so that they could record his statement over a case of alleged criminal intimidation of the Sabah governor Juhar Mahiruddin.
