In other countries, these personalities, including Musa Hassan, would have been hauled up for investigation. He was the IGP, the highest rank police officer in the country. Here, his allegations are merely treated as a talk show. Press members, especially the alternative online news media, are treated to exciting story telling. But the mainstream media have mostly avoided and ignored him.
Of course the Home Minister and his party leaders have brushed aside Musa's expose and claimed that someone is behind the latter's move to disrupt the UMNO's general assembly.
It is difficult to imagine that Musa is doing the expose right now to help save the police force from further deterioration. If he did nothing much during his tenure as an IGP, what can he do now as a retired civilian? We remembered clearly that Musa was at the centre of most controversies and he was even seen in greater cohort of the ruling regime compared to any IGPs previously.
Is Musa a real champion of the police force? If he is, he would have moulded a force that would respect the fundamental rights of the people to assemble and speak up. He was the commander-in-chief of the police who had instructed harsh clampdown on peaceful assemblies.
Interesting, a pro-UMNO blogger is joining the fray and is trying to spin his way through to protect the integrity of Musa Hassan. He even had dinner with Musa to find out if his expose has anything to do with Pakatan's Anwar Ibrahim. Of course he had to spin it in a way to hint that Anwar was jailed because he tried to interfere with police investigation. I will leave this part to PKR leaders to defend their supremo.
Rocky's conclusion: "I believe the man but others wanted Musa perceived as just another "yes" man (and corrupt, too, if RPK's stories were to be believed!).
Then Rocky quoted a portion of my post in 2010 "Musa Hassan on Interference of Police Work: Too Late, Too Little" and credited me as a Pakatan blogger insinuating that the opposition would have cooked up various reasons to doubt Musa. Unlike him, I am not a Pakatan blogger or member and I am not paid to spin up or spice up stories for the political warlords. My independence has irked many people including those from Pakatan too.
He even called Musa a "Allah-fearing cop" but God would have expected for all men and women to be treated with equal respect and dignity. I leave you to measure Musa's integrity and credibility.
What is interesting is a pro-UMNO blogger and a top henchman of the party came out to defend Musa Hassan in his expose and tried to help the ex-cop to shore up his credibility.
What is next for Musa? Perhaps what Musa is exposing is just a desert/starter. He could be warming up for something more juicy and destructive - although not necessarily to the ruling regime or UMNO leaders. If Rocky is joining the fray and claiming that Musa is trustworthy, credible and Allah-fearing, he will not do it for no reason or to add credence to Musa's mild attack on his bosses.
They could be pointing a bigger cannon at Anwar Ibrahim's direction. Then, they would expect the middle ground to believe them because Musa Hassan is credible and Allah-fearing. He is independent and he wants to help the nation. He has spoken up against UMNO and he is now saying that Anwar is the biggest devil. So you better believe him.
See Rocky? I am becoming a good script writer too and I understand the plot without having to become a henchman of any political party or politician.
I do not have to be a Pakatan man to say that I stand by my view in 2010 on Musa Hassan.
