As the general election draws closer, strange things are beginning to unfold.

This afternoon, former inspector general of police Musa Hassan held a press conference here flanked by NGO leaders closely linked to the opposition.

This has fuelled speculations that the ex-top cop would be joining the Pakatan Rakyat coalition soon.

The press briefing was organised by a new NGO called the Malaysian Crime Watch Task or MyWatch, which is chaired by R Sri Sanjeevan. Also present was POWER NGO chief S Gobi Krishnan, who acts as adviser of MyWatch.

Gobi Krishnan is also PKR’s national strategy and political bureau secretary. Sri Sanjeevan has been known to be a harsh critic of the police and a KITA leader in Negeri Sembilan.

The focus of the press conference was on the tackling of crime and Musa was announced as a patron of MyWatch today.
