KUALA LUMPUR — Bukit Aman has put former Sabah chief minister Tan Sri Musa Aman on its wanted list, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun confirmed yesterday.

However, he said he would not be sending a police team abroad to search for the fugitive Umno leader, who has issued statements through a lawyer indicating he is in the United Kingdom seeking medical treatment.

“Yes (he is a wanted man),” Fuzi told reporters here.

“We have alerted the respective authorities, including our friends in the United Kingdom. We are waiting for him to come home. We are confident of him returning soon.

“There’s no need to send a team to take his statement where he is right now.”

Musa, the Sabah Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman, is the subject of a police report by Sabah governor Tun Juhar Mahiruddin, who alleged criminal intimidation by Musa after BN was defeated in the 14th general election on May 9.

Musa had been sworn in as chief minister, but was replaced by Parti Warisan Sabah president Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal when he won the majority support of the assemblymen.

Musa left the country soon after, but still insisted he was the rightful chief minister.
