Kota Kinabalu: Sabah Police Commissioner Datuk Hamza Taib dismissed insinuations of wrongdoing after it was alleged his son owned two luxury vehicles which he should not have been able to afford as he was unemployed.
"How can anyone say he is jobless?" he said, adding that his son, Mohammad Azhan Hamza, 30, was a director in several companies and owned several firms in Kuala Lumpur.
He revealed that Mohammad Azhan read law at the International Islamic University, and his wife was also a qualified lawyer.
"They are living at my house in Kuala Lumpur so they don't have to worry about house loans," he added.
Hamza said to the best of his knowledge, the two luxury cars owned his son were reconditioned and did not cost as much as new ones.
He said this when asked about MyWatch chairperson R Sri Sanjeevan's claim of Mohammad Azhan's "extraordinary wealth."
Sanjeevan alleged that Mohammad Azhan, though unemployed, had bought two luxury cars last year - a Jaguar and an Audi A5, with a combined value of RM1.1mil.
