HULU LANGAT: Police have refuted Sungai Besar Umno division chief Datuk Seri Jamal Yunos' claim that there are "invisible hands" at work to ensure he faces harsh legal action.
Selangor police CID chief SAC Fadzil Ahmat said the police had never received any sort of "pressure" and was not "hasty" in probing the cases related to Jamal.
"We are investigating Jamal for every single case he was involved with. No parties in power made any attempt to contact or pressure us in investigating him. Everything, including paperwork related to his investigation being done in accordance to the existing laws," he told reporters after a gambling machines disposal ceremony at the Bandar Baru Bangi police station, here today.
Fadzil added that police will apply for a warrant of arrest today for Jamal, after he repeatedly made empty promises to meet with police to validate his court bail documents.
Jamal is being probed for escaping police custody under Section 224 of the Penal Code.
"We will intensify our effort in locating Jamal who has failed to show up so far. He should be facilitating the probe and this message was also conveyed to his lawyer," he said.
Fadzil clarified that Jamal had been automatically blacklisted by the Immigration Department fol lowing investigations against him for his involvement in three other cases.
Meanwhile, police are also investigating two policemen over their negligence which had allowed Jamal to escape while he was waiting to complete his bail documentation at the Ampang Puteri Specialist Hospital last Friday.
"The investigation is being conducted by the Integrity and Compliance Standard Department (JIPS) to determine whether the matter was deliberate or there was a misunderstanding or a technical error.
"Jamal and the policemen are being investigated under Section 223 and 224 of the Penal Code for intentional omission to apprehend on the part of a public servant and escape from confinement negligently suffered by a public servant," he said.
Jamal failed to show up at the Ampang district police headquarters yesterday to sign his court bail papers.
The fugitive had released an audio message on Tuesday to the media claiming that he would meet Ampang police at 2.30pm.
His team of lawyers turned up on time at the station, but more than an hour later Jamal was nowhere to be seen.
