KUALA LUMPUR, July 9, 2015:

Pascal Najadi, the son of murdered Ambank founder Hussain Ahmad Najadi, repeated his assertions disputing police disclosures his father’s death was not related to 1MDB.

“By simply denying, that there was no link to 1MDB and the assassination of my father (Hussain Najadi), the IGP draws even more attention from us the family and the general public,” his Facebook post read.

“How come he can say this as there has been no investigation? More, this is not his field of competence, it is the duty of the Attorney-General to pursue this case as it is a criminal offence that was committed in Malaysia and the mastermind killer is known to the Malaysians and to the world through Interpol under Article 145 of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia,” his post from St Petersburg Russia read, adding his call on readers to report and tweet his comment.

Pascal’s comment came in the wake of yesterday’s disclosure by IGP Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar that the 2013 fatal shooting of Hussain Ahmad was not linked to 1MDB.

“We completed our investigations following and we know the motive behind the incident.” he responded to media queries at KL Sentral yesterday.

Khalid refuted Pascal’s claims saying that the son had based his claims and assertions on hearsay and blog postings.

The IGP also dismissed conspiracy theories surrounding the shooting saying they were baseless and malicious.

In the wake of the IGP’s statement, Pascal called on Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Ghani Patail to intervene into the matter.

Hussain was shot dead outside the Kuan Yin temple in Jalan Ceylon, on July 29, 2013, while his wife Cheong Mei Kuen cheated death when a lone gunman opened fire on them.

Taxi driver Chew Siang Chee was sentenced to 14 years imprisonment for his participation in the killing, while tow truck driver Koong Swee Kwan was identified to be the gunman and found guilty of murder last year, and sentenced to death.

Koong was also sentenced to 18 years’ imprisonment for attempting to murder Najadi’s wife Cheong.
