Hamid: Police to review all reports involving ex telco chief

PUCHONG: The police are reviewing all reports received since 2015 involving a former CEO of a telecommunications company, including complaints of him allegedly molesting his children.

Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador said 17 police reports were lodged by the ex-wife of the former CEO over the last four years.

He also said that the case was being reviewed after it had earlier been classified as NFA (no further action) after discussions with the Attorney-General’s Chambers found that there was insufficient evidence.

“When there isn’t enough evidence, it will be classified as NFA (no further action) by the Attorney-General’s Chambers.

“We will review and, if necessary, obtain additional evidence or statements to assist in the investigation into the case, it will be done immediately,” said Hamid.

Earlier today, the former CEO, known as Jason Lo, dismissed the accusations levelled against him, saying he had been cleared by the police and the Child Welfare Services.

He also accused English daily The Star of being unjust for not getting his side of the story before publishing the news report, which he said has affected him and his children.

Hamid said the police had never closed the case and were in fact, prepared to accept and seek any new evidence.

“If there is more evidence and (if it i ) valid, we will bring the case up to the Attorney-General’s Chambers to be considered for prosecution,” he said.
