In response to Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Musa Hassan ‘s allegation of third party interference in the running of the police force, the home minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein said that he had not received any complaint about the alleged third-party involvement from Musa and did not know if there was any truth in the statement.
He said if allegations made by (IGP) were true, then Musa should take action against those concerned.
Hishammuddin also said that such matters should to reported to him.
Two questions have arisen from IGP’s allegation and Hishammuddin’s reply.
Firstly, why did IGP resort to publicly make a serious allegation and why did he not raise the issue with his superior, the home minister?
Secondly, why did Hishammuddin not say that he would immediately summon the IGP to explain his public allegation?
Malaysians have a right to know the truth and the home minister should make a Ministerial Statement in Parliament on the serious public allegation made by the nation’s top cop.
