IGP says report on MACC probe on cops false

Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar yesterday denied a news portal report about 60 police personnel being investigated by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) for money laundering and corruption.  

"I've met MACC chief commissioner Tan Sri Abu Kassim Mohamed and he was also surprised by the report. He said, 'Where did they (Malaysian Insider) get it from?

"He told me the news is false," he said after a gathering with retired senior police officers at the Police Training Centre (Pulapol) in Jalan Semarak.

He cautioned reporters not to report information from inaccurate sources and added that the matter has been left to the MACC and Attorney-General's (AG) Office for further action.

According to the news portal, about 60 police personnel were suspected of receiving bribes from the operators of illegal businesses, such as cyber cafes, massage parlours and vice dens in the capital.

On a separate development, Khalid said the investigation on the incident involving the T-Team and Johor Darul Takzim teams in the tunnel leading to the changing rooms in Larkin recently, will be completed soon.

"We will present it to the AG's Office once it's finalised," he said, adding that more than 20 individuals had been called to facilitate the investigation.
