KUALA LUMPUR: Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun today confirmed that former Sabah’s chief minister Tan Sri Musa Aman will return to Malaysia in the near future. He said this when asked on a viral message that has been circulating on social media since Sunday night, hinting the Sungai Sibuga assemblyman will arrive in Malaysia today. Fuzi said police had contacted Musa and hope that he would return voluntarily. “That’s just a viral message. Police cannot confirm when will he come back. “But we have contacted him, we expect him to return in the near future,” he told reporters after officiating “Gotong-Royong Mega 1.0 Perangi Aedes Peringkat PDRM” at Federal police headquarters in Bukit Aman here today.

The message on WhatsApp stated that Musa will land in Singapore before entering Malaysia via the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Subang or the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). “Musa Aman who was in hiding with the excuse of getting medical treatment, will be brought back to Malaysia tomorrow (Monday). “The media will be updated from time to time on the status. “The time (of arrival) and the airport Musa Aman (will be landing) will be revealed following further information,” the message said. Musa disappeared from public view on May 14. Apart from being sought after by the police to assist in investigations into a criminal intimidation case filed by Yang di-Pertua Negeri Tun Juhar Mahiruddin, Musa has also yet to be sworn in as assemblyman. He must do so within three months after the first state assembly sitting on June 11. © New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd
