Former IGP says Charles Morais claims are ‘stupid’

PETALING JAYA: The claim by Charles Morais that his brother, Anthony Kevin Morais handed him a pen drive containing incriminating information about a top government official is a “stupid story” that was best left for the police to investigate, not the media, said a former Inspector-general of Police.

Speaking to FMT, Musa Hassan advised Charles to lodge a police report, hand in all the evidence and let the police do their job in investigating the death of his brother.

“Why does he (Charles) have to tell all of this information to the press? Lodge a police report and hand in all the evidence to the police.

“Let the police conduct their investigation. This story he told about Kevin giving him a pen drive when he was overseas is a stupid story.”

Musa said this when asked for this thoughts on the 18-page Statutory Declaration that Charles made Wednesday, alleging that Kevin’s murder was linked to a charge sheet the deputy public prosecutor was preparing against a “high-ranking government official.”

Earlier, during a press conference called for by the Mind and Social Awareness Association (PMSP), which Musa was supposed to have attended, its president Ramesh Rao said Charles was not a credible source as he had a bad financial record with his businesses in the US.

Ramesh also said that the murdered deputy public prosecutor had never even mentioned Charles in his will, indicating that the brothers were not on good terms.

“I give him seven days to hand in any evidence to the police or I will lodge a police report against Charles,” Ramesh told reporters at the press conference in the Petaling Jaya Industrial Park here today.

Meanwhile, PMSP vice-president Zakwan Hafiz dismissed allegations of the existence of a charge sheet as posted by whistleblower website Sarawak Report that claimed Kevin was working on a charge sheet against Prime Minister Najib Razak in regard to 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) subsidiary, SRC International and that the document carried Kevin’s initials.

“The word ‘accusation draft’ does not even exist in our legal system,” Zakwan said, referring to the title of the charge sheet.

Charles claimed that the pen drive was now in the custody of an unknown individual in the United States, who was instructed to release the information if anything untoward happened to him.

The body of Kevin Morais, 55, was found in a drum filled with concrete near Persiaran Subang Mewah in Subang Jaya on September 16, after he was reported missing on September 4.
