KUALA LUMPUR: Former Tabung Haji chairman Datuk Seri Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim has been called up by police in connection with the audio recordings released by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), says Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador.

The Inspector-General of Police said the CID's Special Investigation Unit (D5) has so far called up the Baling MP to assist in the case.

"We are still investigating the matter," he told a press conference after launching the Bukit Aman Narcotic Crimes Investigation Department (NCID) corporate video and official theme song on Tuesday (Jan 28).

Asked on when former premier Datuk Seri Najib Razak will be called up by police, the IGP said police have not ascertained when to do so.

"We will investigate fairly and transparently," he said.

The IGP said while the investigation is progressing, the D5 is also bogged down with a high number of cases that touched on racial tension and hate.

"We are working closely with other relevant authorities to identify and take action against anyone who make 'hate-filled' or seditious statements online.

"Nobody will gain from a campaign of hate. Whoever breaks the law will face the full wrath of the police," he said.

On Jan 8, MACC released nine audio recordings of former top officials’ conversations, including Najib and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, alleging a “criminal conspiracy at the highest level”.

Police had on Jan 17 recorded statements from several MACC officers, including its chief commissioner Latheefa Koya.
