KUALA LUMPUR: Former Malaysian External Intelligence Organisation (MEIO) director-general Datuk Hasanah Abdul Hamid will lodge a police report over claims that she had sent a letter to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).  

In a statement on Friday, Hasanah said she was advised by her lawyers to lodge a report over the matter.   

“I will also hold a press conference to explain the real situation,” she said.   

Several screenshots of the purported letter were made viral recently, where Hasanah allegedly wrote to CIA director Gina Haspel pitching former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak as a United States ally. 

In the letter, Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was described as “anti-West and anti-Semite”.  

The letter was allegedly written on May 4, just a week before the 14th General Election.
