Police To Tighten Security Ahead Of Ruling On Musa’s Suit Wednesday


KOTA KINABALU: Sabah police will tighten security in several areas here ahead of Wednesday’s (Nov 7) decision by the court regarding former Sabah Chief Minister Musa Aman’s challenge on the appointment of current Chief Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Mohd Shafie Apdal.

Sabah Police Commissioner Datuk Omar Mammah said that besides the vicinity around the Kota Kinabalu Court Complex, security would also be tightened at the Sabah State Administrative Centre (PPNS) and other unidentified areas.

“I wish to advise supporters from both sides (Musa and Mohd Shafie) to respect public safety and order.

“Police will not hesitate to arrest anyone who tries to create trouble and interfere with court proceedings,” he said.

He told reporters this after witnessing the handing over of the duties for the Sabah Deputy Police Commissioner (DPC)’s post between Head of Sabah Police Headquarters SAC Mohamad Zulkarnain Abdul Rahman, who was the acting State DPC, and former Bukit Aman Management (Administration) Deputy Director Datuk Zaini Jass here Monday.

On June 6, Musa, who is the Sungai Sibuga State Assemblyman, had filed a suit against the Yang Dipertua Negeri Tun Juhar Mahiruddin and Mohd Shafie to declare that he (Musa) is the legitimate Chief Minister of Sabah.
