KUALA LUMPUR, July 11 — Bukit Aman has put former Sabah chief minister Tan Sri Musa Aman on its wanted list, Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun confirmed today.
But the Inspector-General of Police said he won’t be sending a police team abroad to search for the fugitive Umno leader who has issued statements through a lawyer indicating he is in the United Kingdom seeking medical treatment.
“Yes [he is a wanted man],” Fuzi told reporters here.
“We have alerted the respective authorities including our friends in the United Kingdom. We are waiting for him to come home. We are confident of him returning soon.
“There’s no need to send a team to take his statement where he is right now,” he added.
The Sabah Barisan Nasional (BN) state chairman is the subject of a police report by Sabah governor Tun Juhar Mahiruddin, who alleged criminal intimidation by Musa after the coalition was soundly defeated in the 14th general election last May 9.
Musa had been sworn in as chief minister, but was later replaced by Parti Warisan Sabah president Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal when he won the majority support of state lawmakers.
Musa left the country soon after, but still insists he is the rightful chief minister of Sabah.
The police requested Interpol to issue a Red Notice against Musa in June.
