Former Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) special operations division director Bahri Mohd Zin has lodged a police report against his sister-in-law.
In his report filed in Kelantan earlier this week, Bahri had accused Noraihan Che Ali of making a false report against him, where the latter alleged that Bahri abused his powers to order a raid on her house.
According to the source close to Bahri, the former director denied Noraihan’s assertion that he influenced the MACC and police not to investigate him or his wife Noor Haslina Abdullah.
He claimed that the investigation on Noraihan was based on a report lodged in Kelantan over an alleged forged signature of Noraihan’s late husband with regard to properties amounting to RM4 million.
“I made a written declaration to my superiors then that as I am concerned of a conflict of interest as it involves my wife and her siblings (that I be excluded from the investigation).
“Following this, the operation was led by someone else and not by me,” read Bahri’s report, which was sighted by Malaysiakini.
It is understood that Bahri’s wife also lodged a separate police report on the matter.
At a press conference last week, Noraihan (photo) claimed that Bahri had instructed a team from his division to raid her house in Kota Bharu last January.
The director of Kolej Islam Sains dan Teknologi (Kist) claimed that documents related to her college and other businesses were confiscated.
She said that her late husband Muhamad Zamly Abdullah, who was the owner of Kist and the elder brother of Bahri’s wife, Noor Haslina, passed away in September 2015, leaving behind assets worth RM100 million and debts amounting to RM85 million.
Following this, she claimed a dispute erupted between his siblings, Noraihan and the couple’s nine-year-old son.Noraihan further claimed that those who raided her house tried to force her to sign a “surat penolakan harta” (renunciation of assets letter) and had even attempted to get her son’s thumbprint, but she refused to sign the letter.
Following this, inspector-general of police Khalid Abu Bakar said that investigations had been completed on Noraihan’s report, and the findings have been submitted to the Attorney-General’s Chambers.
Earlier this month, Bahri made headlines when he revealed that he opted for early retirement due to dissatisfaction with the manner in which the SRC International case was handled.
