Embattled CCID Director Ramli Yusoff Charged With Abuse Of Power Over Use Of Police Aircraft

Former Sabah police commissioner Datuk Ramli Yusoff was charged in the Sessions Court here Monday with abuse of power over the use of police aircraft for his personal gain.

Ramli, 55, pleaded not guilty and was released on RM10,000 bail with one surety.

Judge Duncan Sikodol fixed Feb 18-22 next year for trial.

Ramli who is now Commercial Crime Investigation Department director at Bukit Aman, is charged with using his public office for his pecuniary gain by ordering and using a Royal Malaysia Police Cessna Caravan aircraft to take him and two civilians -- Datuk Muhamad Yassin and Khalid Mohamad -- on an aerial surveillance of two lots in Ulu Tungku, Lahad Datu, in which Kinsajaya Sdn Bhd had interest.

The offence was allegedly committed at about 7.50am on June 15 and he is alleged to have interest in the company.

If convicted, he faces a maximum 20 years jail and up to R10,000 fine under section 15 (1) of the Anti-Corruption Act.

***** Almost all ministers and senior public servants including police officers have at some time or the other seriously misused/abused the facilities available in their departments. Till now precious few have been brought to book or hauled up in court.

I don't know whether to praise the authorities for their sudden 'efficiency' or condemn them for selective prosecution. This whole episode looks more and more like a witch hunt.

What is happening now to CCID Director Ramli Yusoff bears a stark resemblance to what happened to Eric Chia and Kasitah Gaddam in 2003. And after the elections, both are found not guilty

Sandiwara semasa seperti biasa!

(Malay soap opera as per usual!)

Unbelievable bullshit, but some suckers will believe it and praise the government for fighting corruption!

New motto for Malaysia:
"Scapegoats R us"
