SUBANG JAYA: Bukit Aman will scrutinise the police report lodged by the special officer to Latheefa Koya before taking further action, says Datuk Mazlan Mansor.

The Deputy Inspector-General of Police said appropriate action will be taken once investigators go through the police report by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner's special aide.

"It would be premature to comment at length before we have the chance to see the police report.

"However, we will get to the bottom of it," he told a press conference after launching Ops Selamat, in conjunction with the coming Chinese New Year celebrations on Tuesday (Jan 14).

On Monday (Jan 13), Latheefa claimed she was a target of a "criminal ploy" after she released audio recordings of several high-ranking officials, including former premier Datuk Seri Najib Razak last week.

"It has now come to my knowledge that in reaction to my disclosure on Jan 8, a criminal plot has been set in motion to fabricate and distribute materials intended to cast a slur upon my personal reputation.

"We believe that a lawyer is among the culprits involved in this plot," she said in a statement Monday night.

She also said her special officer will lodge a police report on the matter today (Jan 14).
