339. Two Police Reports Lodged Pertaining Fake Letters From Perak MB

IPOH, Malaysia- The Perak Menteri Besar's special officer Datuk Azhar Ahmad Monday lodged two police reports concerning the case of forged documents bearing the name of the Menteri Besar and state departments that were used by certain quarters to cheat people.

The first report was lodged at Pantai Remis police station at 6am and the second at Sungai Senam police station here three hours later.

Speaking to reporters at his office here Monday, Azhar said the reports were lodged after he received two letters, with the Perak Menteri Besar's letterhead and purportedly signed by the Menteri Besar's special officer, on approval for state government-owned agricultural land.

"I never signed any letters of approval for state government-owned land... the letters are fake and intended to defame our officials and probably to tarnish the reputation of the menteri besar," he explained.

He said the first letter, dated Dec 9 last year, involved approval for 324ha of agricultural land in Kenering, while the second letter, dated Jan 13 this year, involved about 400ha land in Pengkalan Hulu.

Azhar said both letters were fake and ill-intended as he had no power whatsoever to approve land applications.

"Hence, I call on all individuals who had received such a letter or have fallen victim to the syndicate to lodge a police report, or seek confirmation from the state government before making any payment," he said.

Last week, Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir also called on the police to investigate whether there was an inside job in the case, which was first detected last year.
