Former premier Datuk Seri Najib Razak announced in a Facebook post last night regarding his intention to lodge a police report against himself today, 12 October
"I will ask my assistant to lodge a police report against me so that authorities under the Pakatan Harapan government can re-investigate if I am involved in high-profile murders," Najib wrote in the Facebook post yesterday.
Malaysiakini reported that the former Prime Minister's statement came after Democratic Action Party (DAP) veteran Lim Kit Siang had repeatedly called for investigations into several high-profile murders to be reopened.
Lim had accused Najib of being reluctant to probe four controversial murder cases, among others
Free Malaysia Today reported Lim as adding that he would have reopened investigations into the murders if he had been the Prime Minister, hinting at Najib's reluctance to do the same.
In response to the DAP veteran, Najib shot back by saying that he welcomes a special investigation team to be set up for renewed probe of the murder cases.
Last week, Najib said he welcomes investigations into the murder cases as it was high time that "justice is served" to him
"It has crossed 10 years, and I have been accused by Pakatan Harapan and their propaganda specialists of being involved in the murders of Altantuya, Morais, and Hussain," the former premier was quoted as saying by Malaysiakini on 6 October.
"It is now time for justice to be served to me, the victims' families, and to give room to all the Malaysian people who have accused and defamed me to regret what they have hurled (at me)," he added.
