Burnt car in Perak same brand as missing DPP's
A BURNT car, of the same make as the one used by missing deputy public prosecutor Kevin Morais, has been found in a small town in Perak, local media reported.
Mr Morais, who returned to the Attorney-General's Chamber about two to three months ago after being attached to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) for about eight years, has not been seen since he left his home in Kuala Lumpur for his office in Putrajaya on Friday morning in the government-issued car.
Kuala Lumpur's CID chief Zainuddin Ahmad said it was too early to confirm if the burnt Proton Perdana car found in Hutan Melintang on Saturday had any connection to the DPP's disappearance, The Star daily reported.
"I was told only a frame of a car was found. So far, (the investigators) did not find any trace of bones or human remains in the vehicle," he told news website Malaysian Insider.
A source said a police report was lodged by Mr Morais' cousin before 6pm on Saturday.
Mr Morais was not part of the government task force investigating the debt-ridden state investment arm 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), Attorney-General Mohamed Apandi Ali told Malaysian Insider yesterday.
Mr Apandi was addressing speculations about the possible links between the DPP's disappearance and the high-profile probe into the US$700 million (S$997 million) found in Prime Minister Najib Razak's personal accounts, which allegedly had been channelled there through 1MDB-linked companies.
