Report: Interpol Red Notice issued for Muhyiddin’s son-in-law, lawyer

FORMER prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s son-in-law Datuk Seri Muhammad Adlan Berhan, along with lawyer Mansoor Saat, have been placed on the International Criminal Police Organisation’s (Interpol) Red Notice list.

This was confirmed by Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Razarudin Husain to Utusan Malaysia.

“Yes, it has been done. The Red Notice has been issued against both individuals,” he told the Malay daily yesterday (Aug 24).

On Aug 10, Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki said the anti-corruption agency had been looking for Adlan since June but the businessman had failed to cooperate.

He also said the two men stop making excuses and just return to the country.

It was reported that MACC said that checks with the Immigration Department showed that Muhammad Adlan and Mansoor left the country on May 17 and 21 respectively and that there were no records of the two returning to Malaysia.

On Aug 15, MACC had asked for police to put out an Interpol Red Notice for Adlan and Mansor.

This has been confirmed by Razarudin on the same day, with the top cop saying that the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) and MACC will work closely together in the case.

Adlan and Mansoor are being sought by MACC to assist in an investigation into a project involving the registration, recruitment and storage of foreign worker biometric data at a ministry.

However, both Adlan and Mansoor had subsequently issued statements through their lawyers denying that they are on the run from the law, with both men saying that they had previously informed MACC about their travel plans but had not received any response. – Aug 25, 2023
