Edisi Siasat owner urged to come forward with evidence, says IGP

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) The owner of the Edisi Siasat Twitter account should lodge a report and come forward with any evidence on allegations of abuse of power, malpractice and corruption in the country, says Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani.

Acryl Sani said the account owner needs to prove the allegations and not just make claims on the alleged irregularities on social media platforms.

He added that so far, 13 investigation papers had been opened involving the Twitter account and almost all individuals who were allegedly involved in the misconduct, had given their statements, including senior police officers.

"The investigation papers were opened after a senior police officer who was alleged to have been involved lodged a report. The police have recorded statements from almost all individuals to assist the investigation," said Acryl Sani.

"After finishing recording the statements, we will see how true those allegations are,” he said after the handover ceremony of two armoured vehicles to the Federal Reserve Unit at the FRU Base in Cheras here today.

Recent allegations made on the Twitter account about misconduct by some senior police officers and the top management of the anti-graft agency protecting criminal syndicates had gone viral on social media.

Acryl Sani said the allegations involving the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) had been handed over to the Bukit Aman Integrity and Standards Compliance Department (JIPS) for verification.

Meanwhile, he said the two armoured vehicles costing RM2 million were assigned to Unit 1 and 5 of the Kuala Lumpur FRU.

At present, FRU has 29 command vehicles, Acryl Sani said, adding the replacement process of the vehicles would be carried out periodically. - Bernama
