KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 20 (MySinchew) -- IGP Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar confirmed today that a report had been lodged against former MACC Special Operations Division director Datuk Bahri Mohamad Zain for alleged abuse of power in an attempt to stop the police from investigating his wife while he was still in office.
Khalid said the police had initiated the investigation based on a report lodged in Kelantan sometime last year.
Bahri's wife has been embroiled in a conflict over estate claim and Bahri was said to have abused his power to stop the police from carrying out the investigation.
Bahri played a pivotal role in the investigation of SRC International, previously a 1MDB subsidiary. He resigned earlier this month, citing disappointment over the refusal of the Attorney-General's Chambers to issue mutual legal assistance (MLA) to facilitate the investigation of SRC International.
