Also sidestepped queries on the accuracy of additional details of an alleged agreement between Ismail Sabri and Muhyiddin which were revealed by Umno’s Lokman Adam.

“Have you ever seen the database? I do not want to entertain allegations,” said Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin on Thursday (Sept 1).

He was commenting on allegations made by certain individuals on social media that Najib’s name could not be found on the Prisons database.

The claim was that as of Aug 31, the former prime minister’s name still could not be found in the database.

However, no proof was given to back up the allegation.

Hamzah also sidestepped queries on the accuracy of additional details of an alleged agreement between Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob and Perikatan Nasional chairman Muhyiddin Yassin which were revealed by Umno’s Lokman Adam.

According to Lokman, Ismail had purportedly agreed to expedite the criminal court cases of former prime minister Najib Razak and Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

The agreement was purportedly signed before Ismail’s appointment as prime minister last August.

“You want to know if the (document) is real? Why don’t you ask Raja Petra? He is the one who leaked it,” Hamzah told reporters.

Copies of four pages of the agreement, which appear to contain 10 points, made their rounds in July. However, pages containing points 7, 8, and 9 were omitted.

According to Lokman, those points included an agreement by Ismail to retain Attorney-General Idrus Harun. Idrus was appointed AG after Muhyiddin took office as the eighth prime minister.

He added that Ismail had agreed to maintain the Cabinet team, in addition to retaining Bersatu and PAS leaders sitting at government-linked companies.
