PUTRAJAYA: Police here recorded a statement from the son of slain Customs Deputy director-general II Datuk Shaharuddin Ibrahim yesterday and said they would investigate the matter.

Putrajaya OCPD Asst Comm Abdul Razak Majid said the statement was consistent with his comments published in the media concerning his father’s murder.

Mohd Akhtar was reported to have said that his father was gunned down after investigating a car-smuggling syndicate in Langkawi.

He had also alleged that his father had warned his bosses of corrupt officials, adding that Shaharuddin received a transfer letter soon after making the accusation.

“We are aware of recent statements made by him (Mohd Akhtar) in the media,” ACP Abdul Razak said yesterday.

“He has cooperated fully and confirmed his statements in the media,” he said.

“The case is still under investigation but we are pursuing all leads,” he said.

Peninsular Malaysia Customs Officers Union president Ibrahim Ahmad had also confirmed that Shaharuddin was slated to be transferred a month prior to his murder.

Described as “Mr Clean”, the 58-year-old Negri Sembilan-born Shaharuddin, who headed the Customs and Internal Tax Unit division, was a year away from retirement when he was shot dead in his official vehicle at a Putrajaya junction on April 26.
