Edisi SiasatMY had recently caused a stir in Malaysia for exposing multiple cases of corruption and abuse of power that involved senior officers and other prominent figures in Malaysia.
For this reason, the police had previously requested assistance from the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) to help track the users behind Edisi SiasatMY.
Commenting on the matter, the former Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Tan Sri Musa Hassan said the police should have verify the claims made by Edisi SiasatMY before they take action, as reported by Berita Harian.
He said that the authorities must verify the authenticity of the claims made against these officers as without evidence, the officers concerned could take civil action against the police force.
“Legally, they can sue (PDRM) if the information is not true, but if there is truth in the allegation, the police will have to gather all the evidence to determine whether an offence has been committed,” he told a press conference after chairing the annual general meeting of the Malaysian Community Crime Care (MCCC) at Alam Damai yesterday (25 October).
Musa, who is also MCCC president, said if there was truth in the allegation, those involved should be taken to task to prevent the PDRM’s image from being tarnished.
“In this case, I hope the authorities will conduct investigate into the matter.” he said.
Meanwhile, Musa also said Edisi SiasatMY had also claim that are corrupted practices within the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), and the police should investigate into the matter too.
Previously, Edisi SiasatMY claimed that some of the top officials in Bukit Aman had been selling police ranks, and that some even accepted bribes in the form of goats and cows.
They had claimed that the top management of the enforcement agency had been protecting syndicates and those involved in corruption.
