PKR: IGP’s dismissal of shooting link to 1MDB ‘premature’

September 7, 2017

PKR’s Fahmi Fadzil says Fuzi Harun should not be making any conclusion yet on possible link between shooting of ex-AG Gani Patail’s driver and 1MDB.

PETALING JAYA: PKR has hit out at the new Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Mohd Fuzi Harun after he dismissed any connection between the shooting of a former attorney-general’s driver and the 1MDB scandal.

PKR communications chief Fahmi Fadzil said it has only been a week into the investigations, so it is premature of Fuzi to make any conclusion if there was a link to 1MDB or not.

“After eight or nine days into the investigations, without any evidence or suspects caught, it will be difficult for anyone to accept his response on the possible 1MDB link,” Fahmi said at a press conference at the PKR headquarters here today.

He then urged the police to look into the issue seriously as it may have negative implications among the public on Malaysian institutions.

Meanwhile, Fahmi highlighted that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had informed that the shooting incident may be a warning to discourage witnesses not to assist in its investigations.

“This may be an effort to silence witnesses to come forward for the US Department of Justice (DoJ) investigations on 1MDB,” he said, referring to a Bloomberg report yesterday.

He added that Fuzi’s quick dismissal of the issue just adds further suspicion on the matter.

Bloomberg reported that in a federal court filing in Los Angeles yesterday, the FBI said several individuals in “certain foreign countries” were concerned about their safety should they cooperate in the FBI’s criminal probe into 1MDB.

The US Department of Justice (DoJ) has launched a criminal investigation into funds allegedly siphoned from 1MDB and has sought to delay civil suits filed in the past two years to forfeit more than US$1 billion (RM4.3 billion) in real estate and other assets.

Bloomberg said witnesses who had come forward to provide information had told the FBI that they were worried that they were putting “the safety and security of both themselves and their families at serious risk”.

Bloomberg said witnesses who had come forward to provide information had told the FBI that they were worried that they were putting “the safety and security of both themselves and their families at serious risk”.

In its filing, the FBI cited Malaysian news reports of local officials who had been arrested because of their purported role in investigating embezzlement in 1MDB.

It also cited the August 29 shooting of Gani’s driver as a possible warning to the former prosecutor not to cooperate with the US authorities.

Ex-AG Gani’s driver shot

Two unidentified men shot and wounded the driver of former attorney-general Abdul Gani Patail at the victim’s house in Ampang Perdana this morning.

In the 8.30am incident, the men reportedly approached the victim on the pretext of asking for directions before shooting him in the leg.

According to China Press, police are investigating the motive and attempting to identify the assailants.

Quoting sources, the report said it appeared that the assailants had wanted to send a warning, and therefore shot the victim in the leg.

The report, which identified the victim only as Mustafa, said he had been working as a driver for Gani since January this year.
