INVESTIGATIONS into Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission chief Dzulkifli Ahmad for allegedly enticing a married woman are ongoing, with papers submitted twice to the Attorney-General’s Chambers, the Inspector-General of Police said today.
Mohamad Fuzi Harun said police had submitted investigation papers on October 17 and on October 30 and will do so a third time after the AGC handed them back for more information.
“The papers were sent back to us as there are many follow-up steps we have to do before we can resubmit the papers,” he said in a press conference after visiting the Special Action Force training centre in Cheras today.
Dzulkifli is at the centre of controversy after videos of him surfaced holidaying with a woman who is not his wife in Bali.
Police are investigating him under Section 498 of the Penal Code for enticing a married woman.
He has neither confirmed nor denied being the man in the videos and has only said he would not bow to such “dirty tactics”.
Fuzi, asked whether police had taken Dzulkifli’s statement, said: “We have taken the necessary action. We know how to do our job.”
Dzulkifli continued with his duties in Sabah today, attending a talk for students on Combating Corruption and Power Abuse at Universiti Malaysia in Kota Kinabalu.
He announced a second Ops Armada to crackdown on illegal fishing syndicates in Malaysia, would be launched soon.
He also said the MACC would go to primary and secondary from next year to raise awareness about bribery and corruption among children.
At the event, Dzulkifli refused to take questions on whether he was being pressured to quit MACC.
It is believed some Umno leaders are wary of the Dzulkifli’s leadership of the MACC which has been actively cracking down on big cases, while a recent editorial in Malay daily Utusan Malaysia said the attacks on Dzulkifli could have been due to the anti-graft body going after gambling dens.
Umno’s Langkawi MP Nawawi Ahmad, however, told the Dewan Rakyat last week to be cautious about the videos of Dzulkifli and the married women, saying they could have been doctored.
