PKR youth chief slams CPO over arrest threat
“I urge Datuk Khalid (Abu Bakar) to be more professional,” said the party youth chief.
Khalid yesterday said a warrant would be issued for Shansul’s arrest if he continued to avoid the police.
He added that the politician should come forward to help the police if he really had evidence on the murder.
Shamsul is alleged to have remarked that police were linked to the murder of the local cosmetic tycoon in an interview.
Shamsul in a posting on his blog said he views seriously the allegations against him by Khalid and the claims that he failed to contact police, supposedly to facilitate their investigations.
He said he wanted to make clear, particularly to Khalid, that he never made any accusations against the police.
Instead, he merely questioned the possibility of abuse of power on the part of the Banting police which failed to act in previous cases involving the suspects.
He pointed said these cases, classified as missing persons, were only reopened after the recent murders attracted media attention.
Sosilawati, 47, her driver Kamaruddin Shamsudin, 44, lawyer Ahmad Kamil Abdul Karim, 32, and CIMB Bank officer Noorhisham Mohammad, 38, were killed, after they went missing last month, while in Banting for a land deal.
Shamsul also claimed to date police have failed to use proper procedures, as spelled out in the Penal Code, to contact him.
“Therefore it’s unjust for the police to accuse me of trying to avoid them, “ he said.
Shamsul said the police should have use proper procedures to contact him instead of the media.
He added that he would be taking up the issue with the Malaysian Anti- Corruption Commission (MACC), in Putrajaya, at 3pm tomorrow.
