A Daniel come to judgment ? - 'Israel-police link': Hisham orders probe

A Daniel come to judgment ?

Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein has conceded that there were problems with a computer firm employed by the police headquarters and that the company's services had been terminated.

“For the record, the contract with the company Asiasoft has been terminated,” said Hishammuddin

He was responding to allegations by Permatang Pauh MP Anwar Ibrahim, who accused the police of hiring a company which allowed Israeli military intelligence agents to infiltrate the communications server room of the Bukit Aman police headquarters.

Anwar Ibrahim has accused the government of having links with Israel, involving the federal police headquarters.

He claimed that Israeli military intelligence agents had once been present in the communications server room at the Bukit Aman police headquarters.

"Two officers from the company (Asiasoft), were in the Bukit Aman server room around the clock, on the 2nd and 3rd floor, that's the contract."

He said the agents were working in the guise of employees of Asiasoft Malaysia, a company engaged by local firm Masterplan Consulting Sdn Bhd to upgrade the police communication systems.

Inspector-General of Police Musa Hassan has challenged Anwar Ibrahim to provide evidence on his allegation.

He said police needed concrete evidence including all information obtained by Anwar before starting detailed investigation on the matter.

"Provide evidence on the matter...so that it's easy for us to investigate because we can't start an investigation without any evidence," he said.
