Mantan Pengarah Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah (CID) Kuala Lumpur, Datuk Mat Zain Ibrahim berkata polis perlu menyiasat dakwaan dokumen rahsia dibocorkan dan dijual kepada negara asing.
Mat Zain berkata siasatan seperti itu sepatutnya dilakukan pegawai kanan polis, terutama timbalan ketua polis negara Datuk Seri Khalid Abu Bakar.
Beliau memberitahu Malaysiakini bahawa siasatan seperti itu sepatutnya dilakukan pada 2006 apabila kes pembunuhan wanita Mongolia, Altantuya Shaariibuu berlaku.
Polis sepatutnya menubuhkan jawatankuasa tertinggi yang sekurang-kurangnya diketuai oleh Khalid untuk menyiasat perkara itu, katanya.
Mengikut Seksyen 3 Akta Polis, 1967, polis tidak semestinya menunggu sehingga laporan polis dibuat untuk menyiasat dakwaan tersebut, katanya lagi.
Beliau menyatakan demikian ketika mengulas pendedahan peguam Suaram, Joseph Breham di Bangkok pada 31 Mei bahawa sebuah syarikat pertahan Perancis membeli laporan penilaian Malaysia ke atas kapal selam kelas Scorpene dan membayar 36 juta euro (RM142 juta) kepada Terasasi (Hong Kong) Ltd), kononnya untuk “kerja-kerja kejuruteraan komersial.”
Dalam wawancara eksklusif itu, Mat Zain enggan gambarnya dirakam sepenuhnya atas sebab keselamatan.

Slowly but surely, the net is closing in on Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim. Utusan Malaysia reported that Anwar was allegedly controlling 20 master accounts managed by his cronies, which involved assets, shares and cash amounting to more than RM3bil during his tenure as the deputy prime minister.
But having Perkasa to head the call for a Royal Commission of Inquiry, only adds suspicion and ridicule to a seemingly 'serious' allegation.
Anuar Shaari, a former private secretary to Anwar, has joined the chorus to demand that Anwar explains his involvement.
However, opposition critics have remarked that if he had RM3 billion to spare, he would have fled the country, instead of staying put to face his enemies swarming upon him like vultures, waiting to nail him to the wall, and fighting for the rakyat
Accusations in the past to discredit Anwar, had always fallen flat. Anwar's uncanny ability to dodge the unending allegations and charges laid against him has gained him a remarkable reputation.
The charges never stuck, and he has always managed to emerge from each scandal smelling like a rose. In fact it had made him into a sort of hero.
In the last four years, the excessive media attention on him has turned him into a household name. The 'overkill' has led the rakyat to question the government's over zealousness in its quest to implicate Anwar.
Even BN supporters have learnt to shrug their shoulders at these mindless accusations. How can anyone commit so many sins in such a short time, and live to tell about it? No less than a few hundred reports have been made against the opposition leader.
Sodomy 1.0 brought a shock to the humble, simple rural religious folk and to the men on the streets, but Sodomy 2.0 has only brought about a wide yawn. Many, who once thought that he was guilty of sodomy, are now questioning whether there is any truth in it at all?
Today, everyone is wondering whether the negative reaction towards the LGBT community by the government is in anyway linked to Anwar's purported bisexuality?
Many of Anwar's former friends and colleagues have queued in line to accuse and condemn Anwar for his alleged wrongdoings ranging from corruption, mismanagement to his queer sexual preferences, but his reputation is hardly tainted.
In fact his following has increased with most having no qualms against him being the prime minister, should Pakatan Rakyat manages to win the election
The lame efforts to discredit him continue to fail miserably, and fall apart as fast as they were conjured up. The lack of follow-up has many wondering whether these accusations had any truth in it in the first place.
But what is most disturbing is how can a whole government be so 'fixated' upon one man to the point of 'obsession'? The determination to neutralise Anwar is so obvious, that many are starting to feel sorry for him.
But the conclusion now is that it is foolhardy for the government to jail this man even if he is found guilty, as it will backfire on the ruling coalition. The most they can do is to continue discrediting his reputation, in the hope of swinging sympathy votes.
This latest accusation against him does come as a surprise. Surely, the government had knowledge of these accusations, and why was action not taken against him then? Why bring it up now?
Makes no sense
Many think, neutralising Anwar would pave the way for a general election, Pakatan would collapse, and the rakyat would be persuaded to swing their votes. The opposition however feels that with or without Anwar, the momentum for change is irreversible, and the rakyat is determined to vote for change.
Each passing day, Anwar, continues to hold his head tall, mesmerising the crowd with his calls for change, a dawn of a new era, equal rights, Ketuanan Rakyat and a government that is people-centric.
