INEFFICIENT OR INTENTIONAL? No response from cops, Mat Zain lodges 2ND REPORT against Shafee

INEFFICIENT OR INTENTIONAL? No response from cops, Mat Zain lodges 2ND REPORT against Shafee
Retired police officer Datuk Mat Zain Ibrahim is not letting up the pressure on Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah (pic) as he lodged another report against the Umno lawyer for allegedly giving false evidence in an affidavit.
The former Kuala Lumpur Criminal Investigations Department (CID) chief filed the complaint about Shafee’s second affidavit on December 18 which was made in reply to Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's application to disqualify the Umno lawyer from acting as Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP).
Shafee has been appointed DPP by Attorney General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail in August to lead the prosecution team in the Court of Appeal to set aside the former deputy prime minister's acquittal for sodomy.
On December 15, Mat Zain had also lodged a police report against Shafee, alleging that the Umno lawyer's first affidavit to the Court of Appeal contained inaccuracies. He also alleged that Shafee had suppressed material evidence with the intention of deceiving the court.
Mat Zain, in his 31-page SD, had said that he went with Shafee and former Commercial Crime Investigation Department director Datuk Ramli Yusof to Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad's house during the Hari Raya period this year where they allegedly discussed the wrongdoings of Gani.
Mat Zain in a statement today claimed that Shafee had committed an offence under the Penal Code which upon conviction was punishable with jail.
He said his report at the Putrajaya police station on Thursday was also to urge Gani to reopen the investigation on the Anwar black eye incident in 1988.
Anwar had made a report in 2008 where he had claimed that Gani, former Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan, forensic consultant Dr Abdul Rahman Yusof and Mat Zain had fabricated evidence during the black-eye investigation.
Mat Zain cited three reasons to justify reopening the case.
Firstly, he said a new material evidence in the form of a report dated February 2, 2009, and addressed to the then Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had now surfaced.
"This report contained a full illustration of the manner the fabrication was done and include all the three fabricated medical reports involved.
"This document was by far the most important material that could decide on whether there was any fabrication of evidence committed during the black-eye incident investigation or any other related investigations against Anwar," Mat Zain said.
Secondly, he said, the report was investigated by the Malaysian Anti- Corruption Commission (MACC)  under Section 15 of the Anti-Corruption Act 1997 which dealt extensively on corrupt practices but not on fabrication of evidence.
"Based on my previous experiences, the appropriate law to be applied in this case is Section 193 of the Penal Code," he added.
Thirdly, he said there were material contradictions in the public statements made when announcing the result of the investigation by former Anti-Corruption Agency chief Datuk Seri Ahmad Said Hamdan, former Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz and the current MACC chief Tan Sri Abu Kassim Mohamad. - TMI
