Ex-IGP Musa apologises to settle suit

SHAH ALAM: Former IGP Musa Hassan today apologised in the Shah Alam High Court to former MACC adviser Robert Phang to settle a defamation suit.

Phang filed the suit in January 2013, saying Musa, on December 10, 2012, had defamed him by insinuating that he had links in the underworld and had interfered in the workings of the police force.

The defamatory statements were made during a press conference organised by the MyWatch anti-crime organisation and published in FMT and social networking sites.

“I admit that the statements were defamatory of the plaintiff and fully regret the statements,” Musa said in court.

“Accordingy, I retract the entire statement made by me against the plaintiff and undertake not to utter or publish any defamatory statement against the plaintiff in future.”

Musa also agreed to pay RM10,000 in costs.
