Cops investigate man with fraud allegations against Fire Dept DG, ex-IGP


KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Police have opened an investigation against a man who claimed that Fire and Rescue Department director-general Datuk Seri Mohammad Hamdan Wahid and former Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan were involved in fraudulent activities.

Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said that this was following a police report lodged by Musa (pic) at Petaling Jaya police headquarters at noon on Monday (Oct 26).

A similar report was also lodged by Hamdan at the Putrajaya police headquarters on the same day, and in the reports both claimed that they were defamed by a certain individual.

"Investigations are being conducted under Section 500 of the Penal Code for defamation and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 for using the Internet or telephone to spread false news,” ACP Nik Ezanee said.

Meanwhile, Putrajaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Fadzil Ali also confirmed that he had received a report from Hamdan and that the case has been handed over to Petaling Jaya police for further action.

Two video clips, lasting about three to four minutes each, went viral on social media, showing a man claiming that Musa and Hamdan were involved in fraud cases including a get-rich-quick scheme.

Meanwhile, Musa, in a statement, said that he lodged the report as the allegations were malicious and intended to tarnish his and Hamdan’s reputation.

"I have also included some evidence to prove the accusation against me is untrue and malicious by nature, for further action by the police,” he said.- Bernama
