KOTA KINABALU: Sabah police are getting impatient with the delay in obtaining the statement of former chief minister Tan Sri Musa Aman over a criminal intimidation report lodged by Yang di-Pertua Negeri Tun Juhar Mahiruddin.
Sabah police commissioner Datuk Ramli Din said police are still probing the case and hoped that Musa would come forward soon.
"As a leader, he should come forward to help wrap up the probe into the case. His absence will only delay the case further," he said after launching Ops Selamat near here on Thursday (June 14).
The police investigation is likely to give a clearer picture on what happened at Istana Negeri on the night of May 10, amid the political horse-trading.
Musa was sworn in as chief minister before the Governor during an apparently delayed ceremony at 11.10pm on May 10, but lost his majority support among state assemblymen 12 hours later when six of them defected.
Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal, whose Parti Warisan Sabah and its allies secured a majority with 35 of the 60 state seats, was sworn in as Chief minister at 9.15pm on May 12.
Apart from being wanted by police, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is also looking for Musa for a case believed to be linked to GE14.
Musa's whereabouts are still unknown.
