Kelantan police chief denies cop menaced graftbusters
KOTA BARU, July 16 — The Kelantan police have refuted an allegation that a policeman was involved in intimidating Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission officers investigating illegal gold mining activities in Sungai Emas, Felda Perasu, Gua Musang last Thursday.
State police chief Datuk Jalaluddin Abdul Rahman said four suspects who allegedly threatened the MACC officers, were arrested at 10pm last night and remanded for three days starting today.
“It’s all slander, no policemen were involved, don’t make an assumption,” he told reporters after attending a community programme organised by the Public Complaints Bureau at the Kota Baru Polytechnic, Kok Lanas here, today.
Yesterday, Jalaluddin said the Kelantan police have identified two of the eight suspects who had allegedly obstructed MACC officers who raided the illegal gold mining site.
The group allegedly stopped a car ferrying the MACC officers from the Putrajaya headquarters.
The MACC had lodged four police reports over the incident. — Bernama
