KUALA LUMPUR: Investigation papers on the transfer of Felda land in Jalan Semarak are expected to be submitted to the Attorney-General’s Chambers next week, says Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun.

The Inspector-General of Police said police officers tasked with investigating the matter have been working diligently for the past few weeks.

“I cannot go into details but we expect to submit the investigation papers by the end of next week.

“We have called up persons of interest in the case and our investigation is ongoing,” he told a press conference after launching the new Aseanapol headquarters at Menara Kembar Bank Rakyat.

Last week, former Felda chairman Tan Sri Mohd Isa Abdul Samad had his statement recorded over the matter.

Mohd Isa was Felda chairman from 2011 to January 2017. He was the ninth person to be questioned by the police over the transfer of Felda land worth some RM200mil in Jalan Semarak.

Police are investigating the case under the Penal Code for cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property.

A special task force has been set up to conduct investigations into Felda’s purported loss of ownership of the four pieces of land.

On an unrelated matter, the IGP said police have not received positive feedback from their Pakistani counterparts on a Malaysian terror suspect caught at Karachi airport recently.

“Response is slow and not encouraging. We are still waiting for more progress in the matter,” he said.

It was reported that Malaysian terror suspect Al Muhd Alfie Kqhyriel was arrested in Karachi for attempting to smuggle firearms out.

Pakistani authorities seized four pistols, eight ammunition magazines and 70 bullets hidden in his bag and shoes.

It is believed that Muhd Alfie is now being questioned by intelligence agencies over his alleged links to IS.

On the new headquarters for Aseanapol, Mohamad Fuzi said the regional enforcement body had been operating at Menara 2 in Bukit Aman for 10 years.

“It is timely that Aseanapol has a proper headquarters, where it will be able to coordinate regional police cooperation more effectively.

“I have no doubt that Aseanapol will be able to play more vital roles in bringing various police forces in the region closer together,” he said.
