Delayed investigation prompts manager to seek updates on breach of trust case


IPOH: A security service firm manager is seeking clarifications from the police regarding a report he lodged last year of a case involving an alleged criminal breach of trust.

Mohd Amiruddin Paul Abdullah, 50, said the investigating officer had yet to update the report since it was lodged in March last year.

"I tried to get an update from the investigating officer in March this year, and I was told that the case was still being investigated,"

"It is the same reply I've been getting since last year," he said in a press conference held by Perak Barisan Nasional public service and complaints centre chief Mohd Rawi Abdullah here on Tuesday (June 4).

"I am worried that the case would be classified as NFA (no further action)," he added.

Mohd Amiruddin Paul said his report was against a civil servant he had employed as a part-time operations manager for his firm.

He claimed that the civil servant had misused his firm's money.

"I've lost more than RM210,000," he said.

Mohd Amiruddin Paul hoped the police would speed up the investigations and take action.

"The money he took from me has affected my firm's cash flow, and I want the matter resolved as soon as possible," he added.

Mohd Amiruddin Paul's lawyer, J. Matthews, said all necessary documents have been submitted to the police for the investigation.

"We are not even sure if anyone was arrested or any statements have been recorded by those involved," he said.

Mohd Rawi said he would write to the Police Inspector-General to clarify the status of the investigation.

"I hope the police can expedite the investigations," he added.

When contacted, Ipoh OCPD Asst Comm Abang Zainal Abidin Abang Ahmad said the police needed to investigate the matter as according to the law.

"They expects the police to investigate according to what they want and not base on law.

"Most of the documents (they) submitted to us also do not tally," he added.
