IGP praised for speedy probe on Jong-nam’s murder, but not 1MDB

IGP praised for speedy probe on Jong-nam’s murder, but not 1MDB

Inspector-general of police Khalid Abu Bakar has been pressed on when the police would complete their probe on a battery of 1MDB-related reports lodged against Malaysian Official 1, attorney-general Mohamed Apandi Ali and Parliament speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia.

“Congratulations and well done to Khalid for steering… (the investigation into) Kim’s death, (which) is now in court.

“The 16 days it took from the murder to the charging of the two foreigners on March 1 shows police could complete its probe within 16 days,” said lawyer Mohd Haniff Khatri Abdulla, who represented former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad in a number of cases, in a Facebook posting.

Haniff was referring to the Feb 13 assassination of Kim Jong-nam, the estranged half-brother to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, at the low-cost terminal of Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA2).

“However, I would like to remind Khalid there are various reports since 2014 where probes have not been completed regarding 1MDB,” he added.

This included the identity of MO1 as revealed by the United States Department of Justice, and Apandi for not taking action on the investigation papers filed by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

Haniff reminded Khalid the police reports filed by former Batu Kawan Umno division vice-chief Khairuddin Abu Hassan in December 2014 in relation to the 1MDB scandal.

He added that following the DOJ action in the California courts in the US, multiple reports were also lodged nationwide last July.

In November last year, Khairuddin made a police report against Pandikar for allegedly derailing parliamentary democracy.

Pandikar had at a press conference said three former ministers may have broken several laws when they brought up the 1MDB issue while debating Budget 2017 in the Dewan Rakyat.

Last January, Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia Anina Saadudin lodged a report over the alleged dual identity of Jho Low @ Eric Tan following Singapore’s court evidence on the transfer of 1MDB funds to Tanore Finance Corporation and Falcon Private Bank Switzerland.

“Aren’t the issues raised in the reports of public interest which contributed to the present social and economic problems that have a bigger impact to Malaysians compared to Kim’s death,” he posed further.

“Till today … there are no official announcements made by the police on whether investigations to these matters have been completed or the investigation papers are with the AG for further action.
