Cops on alert for meeting by mysterious SULU SULTANATE group

Cops on alert for meeting by mysterious SULU SULTANATE group
KUALA LUMPUR- POLICE are monitoring reports of an alleged planned meeting among members of the "Sulu sultanate" rumoured to be held in Sabah soon.
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said tip-offs suggested that the group would be holding a meeting with an "unidentified party" in the state rocked by an intrusion by the self-styled "Sulu army" last February.
He said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had been made aware of the matter and that it would likely be discussed during Philippine President Benigno S. Aquino III's two-day official visit to Malaysia, which started yesterday.
On another matter, Khalid said police were finalising the investigation papers on an incident which broke out at the Super League football match between Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT) and Perak on Feb 1.
"We will submit the papers to the Attorney-General's office in two days."
A commotion took place in the tunnel of the stadium as the players were returning to their dressing rooms during half-time of the second leg FA Cup match between JDT and Perak's T-team.
T-Team's Brazilian import Evaldo Rodrigues and fitness coach Stefano Impagiazzo claimed they were assaulted then.
The incident also resulted in the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) awarding a 3-0 win to JDT because T-Team refused to continue the match.
Meanwhile, Khalid denied an online news report claiming that the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) was investigating 60 police personnel allegedly involved in corruption and money laundering.
"I do not know where The Malaysian Insider obtained the information. The allegation is completely false," he said at a meet-and-greet session with retired policemen at the Police Training Centre here yesterday.
He said he had met MACC chief commissioner Tan Sri Abu Kassim Mohamed over the matter.
"I saw him on Wednesday concerning this issue and he confirmed that the report was baseless.
"He also questioned the validity of the source of the information, which was said to be a senior officer with the MACC," he said, commenting on the portal's recent report that claimed that the six-month probe by the MACC found one of the police officers had RM20 million in savings in various bank accounts.
"Stop making up such allegations as it will tarnish the police force's credibility."
However, Khalid revealed that some police officers were being investigated for misconduct.
"I cannot deny that there are a few police officers being investigated by the commission. If there are elements of crime and corruption, we will report it to the MACC."
During yesterday's event, Yayasan Pengaman Malaysia donated
RM178,160 to 448 police personnel affected by the recent floods.
The donation was handed over by its chairman, Tan Sri Norian Mai. -NST
