PERAK TENGAH: The audio recording allegedly of an aide to a Perak executive council member trying to “settle” a case with a police officer has been sent for analysis, says the Perak chief police officer.
Comm Datuk Razarudin Husain said that the police had yet to determine the identity of the persons in the recording, and were still investigating it.
“We have sent the audio clip to our forensics team.
“Based on our initial finding, the voice doesn't belong to our officer, but let’s wait for the report first, ” he told reporters at the district police station here Tuesday (Sept 10).
Last month, non-governmental organisation Pro 98 Reformis Perak lodged a police report over the audio recording, alleging that the aide was trying to “kaotim” (settle) a police case.
The NGO’s secretary Sazali Samsudin said the police report was lodged, after he read an online news article.
State Public Amenities, Infrastructure, Agriculture and Plantation Committee chairman Abdul Yunus Jamhari denied the authenticity of the audio clip, calling it fake.
He had been accused of trying to get kickbacks from two companies that were trying to apply for land in Kerian.
It was also reported that Parit Buntar PKR committee member Beh Yong Kean lodged a police report on the matter, accusing Abdul Yunus of leaking minutes from a state exco meeting.
