As probe ends, Musa Aman urges authorities to remain independent

Published:  |  Modified:

As the authorities complete their probe into former Sabah chief minister Musa Aman’s alleged criminal intimidation case, he has called for them to remain independent and just.

"I would also like to reaffirm my faith in the judiciary, the police and the Immigration Department.

"They must always be allowed to carry out their duties independently and in good faith.

"The sanctity of their good office must always be protected," Musa said, as reported by the Malaysian Insight today.

Musa, who had been out of the country since May and underwent heart bypass surgery in London, returned to Malaysia on Aug 21 and was seeking treatment at a private hospital in Subang Jaya.

He was then arrested on Thursday, but was subsequently freed on police bail.

The police are investigating him for alleged criminal intimidation against Sabah governor Juhar Mahiruddin soon after the 14th general election, which Musa has denied.

Musa, who has yet to be sworn in as the Sibuga assemblyperson, said he intends to do so when his health permits.

According to the constitution, he has up to Sept 11 to be sworn in, failing which his seat will be declared vacant.
