Photos, video of man resembling Musa in London go viral

KOTA KINABALU: Pictures and a video of a man resembling Sabah Barisan Nasional chairman Tan Sri Musa Aman at the St Pancras International railway station in London have gone viral.
The photos and a brief video were posted by Facebook user Az Eem who also tagged Rafizi Ramli who heads Invoke Malaysia.
The post published a few hours ago on Thursday (May 31) was captioned: Ex CM (Chief Minister) Sabah spotted at St Pancras, London.
However, it could not be ascertained if the person seen in the video dressed in a red jacket and a cap, standing with a loaded luggage trolley and a young child, was indeed Musa.
.Some of Musa's aides, however, said that it could be old photos and video that are being circulated.
Musa is widely believed to have fled to London without using proper legal channels.
He has remained out of public view though he has made statements via his lawyers on several occasions.
When contacted by The Star, Sabah Police Commissioner Datuk Ramli Din said that police are aware of the viral photos and video.
Comm Ramli said the police wanted Musa to come forward to give his statement.
"The police requests for Musa to come forward to give his verbal statement in order to aid investigations," he said via text message on Thursday (May 31).
His last statement was made on May 26 to convey the message that the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) was free to search his house.
Musa is being sought by the MACC for a graft probe and also by the police to record his statement over an alleged criminal intimidation report lodged against him by Yang di-Pertua Negeri Tun Juhar Mahiruddin.
MACC sources have indicated that Musa had left the country before it could apply for him to be blacklisted from travelling.
Sabah police want to record a statement from Musa but said they do not have an arrest warrant for the former chief minister, whom they confirmed is not in Kota Kinabalu.
Immigration Department did not have a record of Musa leaving the country.
The police report by Juhar surfaced after two political leaders were sworn in at Istana Negeri as the chief minister within 48 hours.
The police investigation is likely to give a clearer picture on what happened at Istana Negeri on the night of May 10 amid the political horse-trading.
Musa was sworn in before the Governor during an apparently delayed ceremony at 11.10pm on May 10, but lost his majority support among state assemblymen 12 hours later when six of them defected.
Parti Warisan Sabah president Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal, whose party and its allies secured a majority with 35 of the 60 state seats, was sworn in at 9.15pm on May 12.
Musa, who was informed by the Governor that he was no longer chief minister effective May 12, is seeking a court a declaration that he is the legitimate chief minister and to nullify Shafie's appointment.-Star
