ISKANDAR PUTERI: Police will investigate the report lodged by former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razak’s personal assistant over allegations linking his boss to several high-profile murder cases.
Najib's personal assistant lodged the report on Friday (Oct 12), asking the police to call up DAP stalwart Lim Kit Siang to give his statement.
In his report, the personal assistant stated that if investigations showed that Najib was innocent, his employer’s name should be cleared and the police should take action against the Iskandar Puteri MP.
The report was perhaps not unexpected.
Last Thursday (Oct 4), Najib had, in a Facebook posting, directed his assistant to lodge a report to allow a police investigation to be carried out on allegations that he was somehow linked to the murder cases of Arab-Malaysia Bank Development Bank founder Hussain Ahmad Najadi, Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu, Teoh Beng Hock and Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP) Datuk Anthony Kevin Morais.
Najib and Lim have been engaged in a public tiff over the matter for several weeks after Lim urged the government to reconsider opening fresh probes into these high-profile murders.
Previously, Lim, in his blog, had clarified that Najib did not kill Teoh, but that his administration must be held responsible for his death.
However, Najib said the Pakatan government’s refusal to conduct special investigations into those high-profile cases had vindicated him over the slanderous accusations that had plagued him during his term as Prime Minister.
Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun said that if necessary, police would call up Lim.
“When a report is lodged, we will investigate, because that is the normal procedure and the report would allow the police would take the necessary action.
