RAWANG, Tues: Six sets of fingerprints were found on a letter containing a death threat and addressed to Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) director-general Datuk Seri Ahmad Said Hamdan last week.
As the writer had used saliva to seal the envelope which contained the letter, a Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) test has been conducted to facilitate investigations.
Selangor police chief Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said the police were waiting for an analysis report from the laboratory to determine who the fingerprints belonged to, adding that the police were also awaiting a report from the Chemistry Department which conducted the DNA test on the saliva.
"We found that the writer had used saliva to seal the envelope, hence the DNA test was taken," he told reporters here today.
He said initial investigations revealed that the letter was sent through a post box in Shah Alam to the General Post Office in Kuala Lumpur before reaching the Selangor MACC. - Bernama
