KOTA KINABALU: The weight of the law must apply equally to Sungai Sibuga Assemblyman Tan Sri Musa Aman especially that now he has returned to Malaysia, said Minister in the Prime Minister Datuk Liew Vui Keong.
“A police report had been lodged by Head of State Tun Juhar Mahiruddin on May 20 (against Musa) and there should not be an exception for him (Musa).
“The complaints against Musa are very serious in nature and the authority must carry out its investigation without fear and favour,” he said when contacted in Hong Kong during the Hari Raya Aidil Adha Celebration at the Consulate General in Hong Kong on Wednesday.
Earlier, Liew and entourage were received by the Consul General Tengku Sirajuzzaman Tengku Mohamed Ariffin at the Consulate Office. He was on his way back to Malaysia after accompanying Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to the People’s Republic of China.
Liew who is the Minister-in-charge of Law said Musa’s initial whereabouts had sparked speculations among the people and he (Musa) should corroborate his claims with a medical report instead merely posting a photo of himself on Facebook via his political secretary.
“While we have been inundated with unsubstantiated claims in the social media about his so-called ‘medical conditions’, his son (Yamani Hafez) who is the Sipitang MP was seen standing by Musa looking prim and healthy.
“At this moment, he has shown a complete disregard of his responsibility as a Member of Parliament, and he has completely shown disrespect to the August House by not turning up for the swearing-in ceremony in Parliament last month without legitimate explanation,” he said.
“The people wants to know if he is as sick as his father who allegedly issued a press statement previously stating that he was travelling home against medical advice,” he added.
Liew said many questions remained unanswered and the people have every right to know as they are the elected legislatures in their respective constituencies.
“As elected representatives, we stand guided by laws with regard to parliament and parliamentarians,” he said, adding that they must also be guided by their moral compass.
Yesterday, SabahNewsToday.com reported Deputy Home Affairs Minister Datuk Azis Jamman as saying that now that Musa is back, he should go through the police standard operation procedure (SOP).
Azis also stressed that nobody is above the law in this country.-SabahNewsToday
