Council votes 'no confidence'
METHUEN - A divided City Council voted "no confidence" in the police chief last night, saying they were frustrated by the department's mishandling of thousands of dollars of a federal grant the city must pay back.

Five of the nine members supported the resolution that takes police Chief Joseph Solomon to task for "mismanagement" and "misapplication" of the funds.

The vote was symbolic but was a way to show the public that the council was not "sweeping the issue under the rug," said Councilor Robert Andrew.

Solomon was suspended by Mayor William Manzi without pa... Read more

Reports: Malaysia's police chi

Malaysia's anti-graft body has cleared its former director and the country's police chief of allegations of corruption and abuse of power, reports said Saturday.

The Anti-Corruption Agency found no evidence that Inspector-General of Police Musa Hassan accepted bribes to release three detainees linked to an illegal betting syndicate, Attorney General Gani Patail was quoted as saying by The Star.

"Analysis of (Musa's) bank account statements did not show any suspicious entry," Gani told the Bernama news agency.

The Anti-Corruption Agency also found that its former director-general, Zulkipli Mat Noor, did not engage in any criminal misconduct or abuse of power, Bernama cited Gani as saying.

The agency investigated 28 accusations against Zulkipli including claims of illegally amassing substantial property in Malaysia and Australia, sexual misconduct and failing to act on information relating to alleged corruption by ministers and politicians, the attorney general said.

"The investigation process did not show any criminal element in the form of practices, conduct or omission by Zulkipli or any abuse of power," he said.

Mohamad Ramli Manan, a former subordinate of Zulkipli, who made the allegations against him, did not provide any documentary evidence, Gani added.

Mohamad Ramli filed a police report in July 2006 describing Zulkipli as "a very corrupt" official. Zulkipli stepped down as the Anti-Corruption Agency's chief in March.

Gani, Musa and Zulkipli couldn't be reached for comments Saturday.

The cases have been an embarrassment for Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who promised to crack down on corruption when he took power in 2003. Malaysia was ranked 44th in Transparency International's corruption index last year an improvement of seven places from 2003.
