MELAKA: Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador has urged Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to lodge police reports following the emergence of the viral audio clip allegedly between the two.
The Inspector-General of Police said that seven police reports have been lodged about the audio recording as of Friday (April 9).
He added none of the reports was lodged so far by either the PKR president or the Umno president.
“I urge them to do so if there is a conspiracy against them, ” said Abdul Hamid after attending a meeting with Operasi Bersepadu Khazanah (OBK) task force organised by the Wildlife and National Parks Department (Perhilitan) at a leading hotel here on Friday (April 9).
He said the audio clip would be sent for analysis once one of them lodged a police report as part of the investigation process.
"We will collect all evidence after a police report has been lodged by any of the individuals," he said.
On Wednesday (April 7), an audio clip of a conversation between two voices sounding like Ahmad Zahid and Anwar went viral, discussing the former's performance at the recent Umno annual general meeting (AGM).
The conversation between the two also said there was a need to hold an extraordinary Umno supreme council meeting to give the president the mandate to make the decision to leave the Perikatan Nasional government.
Meanwhile, Abdul Hamid said the police believe fugitive businessman Datuk Seri Nicky Liow Soon Hee is still in the country.
He said a task force is relentlessly working to act against those who were involved in the fugitive’s alleged network in money laundering and commercial crime cases.
