KOTA KINABALU: Police have recorded statement from ex-Sabah chief minister Tan Sri Musa Aman regarding the criminal intimidation case filed by Yang di-Pertua Negeri Tun Juhar Mahiruddin. This was confirmed by Musa’s counsel, Amer Hamzah Arshad, when contacted by NSTP today, saying that it was done in a private hospital in Subang Jaya, Selangor. “The process of recording Musa’s statement has been completed. The police have acted professionally,” he said. Amer Hamzah assured that their side was ever willing to cooperate with authorities if more statements were needed to be taken to assist investigations.
“We are willing to cooperate… Alhamdulillah, his (Musa’s) condition is all right,” he said, adding that he was not sure if investigation papers have been handed over by the police to the Attorney General’s office. Musa who was in London since mid-May for medical treatment, returned to the country on August 21 and was admitted to a private hospital in Subang Jaya. He has 14 more days until September 11 to take the oath as Sungai Sibuga assemblyman in front of the Sabah state legislative assembly speaker or risk having his seat vacated. Meanwhile, according to a state assembly source, their office had yet to receive any letter notifying a new date for Musa to be sworn in. “If there is, we will inform the media but so far, we have no new information,” the source said. On Friday, Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun had said the police was expected to submit investigation papers to the deputy public prosecutor (DPP) yesterday, with regard to the criminal intimidation case. © New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd
