Warisan says it has never put pressure on enforcement agencies, even though there are allegations against the former CM.
KOTA KINABALU: Warisan, who leads the ruling coalition in Sabah, has denied a claim that the party is on a witch hunt against Musa Aman, following the return of the former prime minister last week in London.
His Secretary-General, Loretto Padua Jr., responded to a claim by Sabah Umno chief Hajiji Md Noor and also denied that the current state government under Shafie Apdal behaved like a bully and pressured on enforcement authorities.
"Who is trying to fool Hajiji?" Early Padua in a statement.
"Sabahans know very well that Musa went to London secretly and that Musa and none of his representatives had said anything about his illness in that important time," he said.
Hajiji, who is the Sulaman assembler, recently accused Warisan state officials of interfering in the work of enforcement authorities.
"Shafie Apdal, Azis Jamman, Loretta Padua, UK Liew and other Warisan leaders must stop harassing enforcement agencies and tell them how to do their job.
"If Warisan thinks that they are the legitimate government, stop acting like a bull in a china shop and start leading the government," said Hajiji.
But Padua said that Shafie had never ordered Musa & # 39; s arrest, although the state government could easily use its powers based on allegations against the former head of Sabah Umno.
Padua said that Umno was still in the old "autocratic" thinking and said it was something "inherited from Musa."
"I want to tell Hajiji that Warisan is very dissatisfied with the way in which Musa received special treatment from the head of the Ramli Din state police and the Immigration Service on his return to Malaysia – nothing more and nothing less," he added.
Musa left Malaysia a week after the general election of May 9, after several mechanics changed sides to give Shafie the majority to form the state government.
He was reportedly in London to seek medical treatment after a heart bypass operation.
