KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysia Anti-Corruption Agency is actively looking into the various complaints made against Sungai Sibuga Assemblyman Tan Sri Musa Aman on corruption issues.
Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Law) Datuk Liew Vui Keong said everyone is equal before the law in Malaysia and there should be no special treatment given to criminal offenders.
“The rule of law in the country is very important and it is part of the Pakatan Harapan Manifesto for the law to be respected by all,” he said, adding that no privileges were given to the case relating to Chief Minister Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal when he was remanded last October on an alleged corruption issue.
According to Liew, a criminal intimidation was filed against Musa by the Head of State Tun Juhar Mahiruddin and is currently wanted by the police.
“During that time, Musa had left Malaysia where his whereabout was unknown until, weeks later, we were later informed by his lawyer that he was ‘receiving medical treatment’ in overseas,” he said in reply to Senator Mohd Yusmadi Mohd Yusoff during the question and answer session at the Dewan Negara here, Tuesday.
Liew also said Musa’s medical report is not valid until they had received endorsement by a government health practitioner.
“Musa is back in Malaysia last week and the investigations made against him by MACC will be continued,” he said.-SabahNewsToday
