SHAH ALAM: The Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan’s recent denial that he is resigning from his position is a clear indication that moves are afoot to boot him out, says Angkatan Muda Keadilan chief Shamsul Iskandar.
Shamsul said apart from being linked to underworld elements, Musa has also been unable to contain the worsening crime rate in the country.
“ I believe there’s a move to oust him, especially with the large sums of money found in his home during a recent raid by the MACC (Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission). Musa has to date not denied this,” he said.
Shamsul added that Musa’s denial is a strategy to stay in power to block disclosures of his corrupt and criminal activities.
He said the recent acquittal of former crime chief Datuk Ramli Yusuf by the sessions court, further reaffirmed his belief.
Ramli, who held the third highest post in the police hierarchy, had linked Musa to the underworld and criminal activities.
A lifeline from Abdullah
In 2007, Ramli alleged that he and his officers were victims of a conspiracy after a probe into underworld activities involving a Johor businessman led a trail to Musa.
Musa reached his retirement age in 2007, but continued to serve for another two years when former Prime Minister Datuk Seri (now Tun) Abdullah Ahmad Badawi threw him a lifeline.
His contract is is scheduled to expire on Sept 13, 2010.
Recently, a Chinese daily was issued a show-cause letter by Home Ministry over its exclusive news report that stated Musa had handed in his resignation letter.
Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein Onn, however, dismissed the report that Musa had tendered his resignation.
China Press has been given seven days to give a written reply to the letter which was issued under Section 8A of the Printing Presses and Publications Act 1984 (Act 301).
