An anti-corruption watchdog has today demanded full public disclosure of the basis for the government’s dismissal of corruption allegations against former Anti-Corruption Agency director-general Zulkipli Mat Noor and police chief Musa Hassan.
“Transparency International Malaysia believes that the public would like to see the full report of the investigations and basis for the decisions made on all these allegations,” said the organisation’s president, Ramon V Navaratnam. Last Friday, Attorney-General Abdul Gani Patail (left) cleared both Zulkipli and Musa of a litany of corruption allegations for lack of evidence. Zulkipli was probed by the police over 28 allegations of corruption and abuse of power, while Musa was investigated by the ACA for allegedly receiving RM2 million in return for the release of three underworld figures under the Emergency Ordinance, which allows detention without trial. In addition to the two, a senior police officer at Bukit Aman is also currently being investigated for abuse of power and undeclared assets worth about RM27 million. He has neither been suspended from duty nor had his assets frozen.
