KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Police Commissioner Datuk Ramli Yusuff and two senior officers have filed a defamation suit against two men who allegedly wrote a false and malicious letter against them. 

They named Abdul Jalil Ayed and Said Hassan Said Idrus as defendants in the suit, which was filed at the High Court registry here on Tuesday. 

The other two plaintiffs are Tawau district crime officer Deputy Supt Madang Usat and CID investigating officer Chief Insp Lee Ping Keong @ Mohd Farhan Abdullah.  

The plaintiffs claimed that the two men wrote the letter at the Tawau Umno division office on Dec 24, and that the letter was faxed to CID Director Datuk Salleh Mat Som at the federal police headquarters in Bukit Aman, Kuala Lumpur. 

In their statement of claim, the plaintiffs said Jalil and Said Hassan had stated in their letter that there were 27 gambling premises in Tawau and that senior state police officers were receiving bribes from certain taukeh

The plaintiffs said the letter had implied the officers were involved in criminal activities, were corrupt, dishonest and not fit to be police officers.
