Amanah today lodged a police report against Bachok MP Nik Abduh Nik Abdul Aziz over the audio clip in which he admitted the party accepted Umno’s money.
According to its youth chief, Shazny Munir Mohd Ithnin, the authorities should also probe the PAS central committee member’s alleged links with the US’ Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
“The words uttered in the audio clip were ‘Ana (I) can talk to the American CIA, who always contacts me’.
“The admission is very serious, as it involves the country’s security, and should be thoroughly investigated,” Shazny told reporters after lodging the report at the Dang Wangi police headquarters.
Last year, Nik Abduh had dismissed the recording as “nonsense and slander”, which he reiterated to the media after the MACC recorded his statement last week.
Yesterday, however, he admitted that it was indeed him in the audio clip, and said that his earlier denial was upon the advice of several PAS leaders, including party president Abdul Hadi Awang.
On Tuesday, PAS secretary-general Takiyuddin Hassan confirmed that it was Nik Abduh’s voice in the recording, but said the issue was not portrayed in the proper context.
In the recording, Nik Abduh admits that PAS leaders including himself, his late father Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, and even Hadi had received funds from Umno.
Shazny said the police should scrutinise the claims made by Nik Abduh about his alleged links with the CIA.
“If indeed it is true, the police should identify the individuals concerned and find out what he (Nik Abduh) had revealed to them,” he said.
