CA to interview Abdullah and Najib
By BERNARD SEE
GEORGE TOWN: The Anti- Corruption Agency will soon record the statements of the Prime Minister and his deputy over a report lodged against them by an Umno veteran.
ACA director-general Datuk Seri Ahmad Said Hamdan said investigations into an allegation of power abuse by the two leaders in the run-up to the Umno elections this December had started.
All our investigations, which are facts-based, are carried out without fear or favour and in a transparent manner regardless of the persons status. Our arrest track record speaks for itself, he said.
On Tuesday, former Umno Youth exco member and Selangor veteran leader Datuk Mazlan Harun lodged an ACA report against Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and his deputy Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
He had said the complaint was to alert the ACA on possible abuse of power in the run-up to party elections in December.
It is learnt that the report was based on an open letter written by Umno Petaling Jaya Selatan division chief Kapt (Rtd) Datuk Zahar Hashim on July 11 to the partys secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansur demanding that Abdullah and Najib be disciplined for allegedly abusing their power.
Ahmad Said was speaking to reporters after attending the TYT Challenge Trophy Shooting Competition at the Penang Rifle Club in Jalan Kebun Bunga yesterday.
Meanwhile, four Muar Umno committee members led by Hassan Tun Sulaiman lodged a report over alleged abuse of power by the party leadership at the ACA office in Batu Pahat.
Hassan declined to give details of the report but said it was connected to a letter sent by Zahar to Tengku Adnan.
He said a report was also lodged against his division chief Datuk Mohd Ismail Mohd Shah.
