RAWANG, 11 Aug 2009: Six sets of fingerprints were found on a letter containing a death threat addressed to Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) director-general Datuk Seri Ahmad Said Hamdan last week.
As the envelope that contained the letter had been sealed with saliva, a DNA test has been conducted to facilitate investigations.
Selangor police chief Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said the police were waiting for an analysis report from the laboratory to determine who the fingerprints belonged to, adding that the police were also awaiting a report from the Chemistry Department, which conducted the DNA test on the saliva.
Khalid said initial investigations revealed that the letter was sent through a post box in Shah Alam to the General Post Office in Kuala Lumpur before reaching the Selangor MACC.
On 24 July, the death threat letter was sent to Ahmad Said at the Selangor MACC office in Plaza Masalam.
In the letter, the writer blamed him and MACC personnel for the death of political aide Teoh Beng Hock, 30, and threatened to shoot the MACC chief and harm his family and other MACC officials.
The letter, written in Bahasa Malaysia, also contained abuse and expletives.
The writer also accused the MACC of targeting only DAP politicians and conveniently leaving out those from the Barisan Nasional in their investigations. — Bernama
