Former IGP apologises to ex-CCID chief Ramli

Former inspector-general of police Musa Hassan has today apologised to former Commercial Crime Investigation (CCID) director Ramli Yusuff over the former's "white knight and black knight remark".

Musa apologised to Ramli inside the chambers of Shah Alam High Court judge Justice Prasadh Sandosham Abraham today.

The court has also ordered Musa to pay RM10,000 costs to Ramli.

Musa had made the statement during a press conference organised by MyWatch, when he was the crime watchdog's patron.

Ramli was represented by Harvinderjit Singh while Musa was represented by lawyers Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahman, and Shahrudin Ali.  

Abdul Aziz, who is the former MAS chairperson, told Malaysiakini said that parties met in chambers and agreed to settle the matter amicably.

"Both shook hands and apologised. There is minimal costs paid," he said.
Ramli: I made 35 asset declarations
The former CCID chief filed the suit on Feb 28, this year, alleging what Musa said at a MyWatch press conference had contained defamatory, slanderous and lies as reported by the news portal Free Malaysia Today (FMT) and a video clip also carried on the website.

Musa had urged Ramli to explain his "enormous wealth" amassed during the latter's career. He had also claimed that Ramli had tried to portray himself as a "white knight" and Musa as a "black knight".

The statements, the former CCID director argued, portrayed him as dishonest, corrupted, had committed an offence punishable by a prison term and had fabricated and made false declarations regarding his assets and accumulated wealth.

Ramli claimed the words were vexatious, bereft of the truth, fallacious and totally uncalled for.

They, he alleged were defamatory and issued with malicious intent despite being investigated by the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission and acquitted of all charges

Ramli said he made 35 asset declarations in his career as a police officer and all had been approved by the deputy IGPs, IGPs and the Home Affairs Ministry.
