I had asked Anwar Ibrahim and Barisan Nasional leaders not to play up the controversy between One Israel and 1Malaysia. It is natural for APCO, an international PR company, to work with many governments in the world.
It is both racist and pathetic trying to drag the Jewish into the local bi-partisan battle. Can Anwar be so sure that he did not receive any funds or assistance from any Jewish backed or linked organisations?
However, IGP Musa claims of third party interference is a serious one. If the government responsible enough, it should immediately direct a parliamentary committee and a special commission (since there is no IPCMC) to investigate Musa's allegations.
Musa Hassan has declined to explain further his claims that a 'third force' comprising 'politicians or certain individuals' was influencing the police force.
His claims in an interview in Mingguan Malaysia on Sunday prompted Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein to ask the police force to investigate the matter further.
If not thoroughly investigated, Musa's claims will further erode the credibility of the government and the police force. Many were doubtful of the police impartiality because stern actions taken against Pakatan talks and functions had happened quite frequently.
Hishammudin should shoulder the responsibility to investigate the claims. If Musa is found vindicated, actions must be taken against the third force. Otherwise, Musa should be hauled up for disciplinary action for making false accusations.
It is time for the government and the police to be accountable.
