THE RPK FILE
A personal aide to Musa Hassan, then Inspector-General of Police, has accused his former chief of having links to triad bosses, ordering a dirty-tricks campaign against a former deputy home minister and allowing a triad leader to manipulate postings and promotions in the police force. Images of a statutory declaration by the aide, Asst Supt Noor Azizul Rahim bin Taharim, made in August last year, were posted by Raja Petra Kamarudin with his latest article at the Malaysia Today website this evening.
In his article Interference in the Malaysian police force Raja Petra said copies of the sworn statement had been distributed to former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad, former IGP Tun Hanif Omar, and other senior officials of the government.
Raja Petra said no action had been taken to put ASP Noor Azizul Rahim on trial for making a false declaration, if it was untrue, because “then the truth would surface. So they did noting at all”.
He said the document spoke of interference in the affairs of the police by external forces — and contrasted that to the complaints made by Musa Hassan recently of interference in the police by others in the government, later pinpointing the home ministry.
Raja Petra also contrasted the treatment accorded to ASP Noor Azizul Rahim and that given to him after he filed a statutory declaration in which he said he had been informed of the involvement of Rosmah Mansor, wife of prime minister Najib Tun Razak, in the murder of Mongolian part-time translator Altantuya Shaariibuu.
No action was taken against the ASP even though his allegations involved the country’s top policeman. Yet Raja Petra himself was charged with criminal defamation, even though he had merely related what he was told about Rosmah who, RPK pointed out, had no official role in the government structure; private investigator P Balasubramiam, who also filed a statutory declaration about the murder, had threats made against his life and was taken out of the country.
Raja Petra himself subsequently left the country with his wife and they now live in exile in Britain.
