KUALA LUMPUR – The Malaysian Armed Forces (MAF) would review its vehicle asset management system to prevent any abuse by personnel, said its chief, General Tan Sri Dr Zulkifeli Mohd Zin.
He said this today when asked to comment on the case in which an army vehicle was found with a tank in the boot believed to be used for fuel smuggling.
On the action to be taken against the culprit, he said MAF was still waiting for the outcome of the investigation.
“We shall see whether we should refer the case to the police or take action ourselves; it depends on the severity of the offence,” he said.
Earlier, Zulkifeli flagged off about 567 participants of the Power Run 2015 at Stadium Kementerian Pertahanan in Jalan Padang Tembak here.
On Sunday, Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein directed the Malaysian Army’s Criminal Investigation Branch to investigate the case and posted a picture of the vehicle in his Facebook page.
He also wrote: “I have ordered an investigation, without fear or favour”.
The picture showed an army vehicle with the registration number ZD5638 with its boot open to expose a tank, at an army owned fuel kiosk. – BERNAMA
