Will Interpol issue a red notice for Muhyiddin’s son-in-law?

AFTER the police, it is now for the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to speak on the attempt by the local authorities to get an International Police (Interpol) red notice list in their search for the missing Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s son-in-law Datuk Seri Muhammad Adlan Berhan.Yesterday (Sept 29), Deputy Inspector General of Police Datuk Seri Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay said the police were still waiting for some more information related to the technical aspects needed from the MACC before applying for the red notice against Adlan.Today, MACC chief commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki noted regarding this matter that his party cannot apply for a red notice directly to Interpol.“On the contrary, we have to go through the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM). Through the police, we submitted what Interpol wanted and Interpol asked for a few more specific documents to be fulfilled,” he told reporters after the SPRM Shooting Programme with the Media at the Malaysian Prison College Target Range today.Commenting on the document, Azam said that among the required documents is the draft charge and it is expected that this document will be submitted to PDRM on Monday (Oct 2).“Next Monday we expect to hand it over to the police.”On Friday (Sept 29), news portal Sinar Harian reported that Ayob mentioned that the police are waiting for some information from the MACC before sending an application to Interpol.The authorities have been on the lookout for two individuals, Adlan, 48 and lawyer Mansoor Saat, 69. They are required to appear before the MACC to prosecute cases of corruption and embezzlement about a project related to the registration, recruitment and biometric storage of foreign workers in a ministry.Both of them are believed to have fled the country last May.In August, Adlan insisted that he is not running away from the authorities but will instead return to the country to help with the investigation after completing all his affairs abroad.Through his lawyer Datuk Baljit Singh Sidhu he stated that he left Malaysia legally and was never arrested or called by the MACC to assist in the investigation.The lawyer revealed that Adlan had been contacted by MACC officials and responded in writing through a letter dated June 3 stating that he was out of the country on business. He claimed that his client also gave him a date to return to the country. – Sept 30, 2023
