During the supplementary bill debate, thePermatang Pauh MP claimed that Inspector-General of Police Musa Hassan had admittedthis in a statement.He quoted Musa as saying in a news report lastyear, "Police were aware of the involvement of the Israelis in the communications upgradingsystem. We informed the home ministry as soonas we learnt about it.”To back his claim, Anwar also produced severalletters which he said were from the senior police officers, namely the police chief, head of logistics and the Special Branch director.The opposition leader said in October 2008,Lim Kit Siang (DAP-Ipoh Timor) had raised thesame issue in the House "but this was brushedaside by the home minister then"."Then between November and December (of the same year), a report was lodged by policeofficers and the case was investigated by oneASP Sairah. Then Sairah was transferred toTaiping and there was no news after that," hesaid.Anwar added that on Nov 25, 2008, the thenhome minister (Syed Hamid Albar) held aspecial briefing at the VIP room at the KualaLumpur International Airport.The briefing, he said, was regarding the allegedinvolvement of Israeli intelligence in theinformation technology division of the secondand third floors of the Bukit Aman policeheadquarters.
