Mohamad Fuzi Harun says that he has had contact with the former Prime Minister of Sabah.
KUALA LUMPUR: Former Sabah chief minister Musa Aman will soon return to Malaysia, police inspector Mohamad Fuzi Harun said.
He said, however, that he was not able to verify messages on social media that Musa had to come back to Malaysia today.
"We are in contact with Musa, but I can not say whether it is true or not that he has arrived in the country today as claimed on social media," said Fuzi after launching the "gotong royong" program in Bukit Aman here today.
Musa must take his oath of office as the Sungai Sibuga assembler by September 11 or leave the chair.
On 15 August, Sabah chairman of the assembly, Syed Abas Syed Ali, ruled that Musa should be sworn in as the constitution of the state within three months of the first meeting of the new state assembly.
The Sabah State Assembly was held on 11 June, after the 14th general elections on 9 May.
Musa, also chairman of Sabah Barisan Nasional, was sworn in as prime minister on 10 May after obtaining a simple majority, but it was short-lived when several BN technicians flew to Parti Warisan Sabah.
Musa is supposed to have left Malaysia on 17 May. He said he needed to seek medical help in the UK.
Musa is also questioned by the police about alleged criminal harassment against Sabah Yang di-Pertua Negeri Juhar Mahiruddin.
