Musa urged to come forward to help in probe

KOTA KINABALU - Sabah police have urged former chief minister Musa Aman to come forward to facilitate investigations into a police report lodged against him by Sabah Governor Juhar Mahiruddin.

Sabah police commissioner Ramli Din said Musa’s cooperation would help expedite investigations.

“As a leader, he needs to come forward to help complete the investigations. But the police will continue their probe with the help of the deputy public prosecutor,” he told reporters here today.

On May 19, Juhar lodged a police report against Musa, believed to be for criminal intimidation. The police report was lodged two days after Musa filed a writ of summons at the High Court here against Juhar and Pari Warisan Sabah president Mohd Shafie Apdal, seeking a declaration that he remains the lawful Sabah chief minister.

Sabah Barisan Nasional (BN) had won only 29 out of 60 seats in the 14th general election. However, Juhar swore in Musa as chief minister after two opposition assemblymen declared their support for Sabah BN, bringing the coalition’s total seats to 31.

Two days later, Shafie was sworn in as the new chief minister when several BN assemblymen switched allegiance to Warisan and its Pakatan Harapan allies, which had also won 29 seats in total.
