Report on Najib and murders: Cops may call up politicians, says IGP

Inspector-General of Police Mohamad Fuzi Harun.

ISKANDAR PUTERI: Inspector-General of Police Mohamad Fuzi Harun today said police would call the politicians involved, if necessary, to facilitate investigations into a report lodged by an aide of former prime minister Najib Razak yesterday, involving high-profile murders.

He confirmed the report lodged by Najib’s aide and that investigations would be conducted according to normal procedures.

The report was lodged at Sentul district police headquarters by Najib’s aide against certain politicians with regards to their allegations against Najib.

“So, we will investigate and take appropriate action. This is a normal process,” he told reporters after opening the Police National Sports Day at Puteri Harbour Marina here today.

Also present were Criminal Investigation Department director Wan Ahmad Najmudin Mohd, police director of management Asri Yusoff and Johor police chief Mohd Khalil Mohd Kader Mohd.

Najib, on his official Facebook page last Thursday (Oct 11), said he had asked his aide to lodge a police report to enable police to initiate investigations regarding the allegation that he was involved in the murders of several individuals, including Mongolian model Altantuya Shaariibuu and deputy public prosecutor Anthony Kevin Morais.

Asked on Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s statement that sabotage within the government was among the reasons why it was difficult for Malaysia to pin down and arrest fugitive businessman Low Taek Jho, or Jho Low, Fuzi said police did not know there was sabotage.

“I don’t know who sabotaged. As far as I’m concerned, police are not involved. We are also looking for him (Jho Low) and his father, and have requested the assistance of Interpol.”
