IPOH – Businessman Koon Yew Yin turned up at the Jelapang police station here today, believed to be in connection with his recent remarks which many deem as belittling the Malaysian armed forces.
He arrived at the police station at 2.55 pm in a BMW driven by a woman.
After dropping off Koon at the entrance to the police station, the woman merely said “thank you” and declined to answer questions from the more than 10 journalists who have been waiting there since 2.30 pm.
Malim Nawar state assemblyman Leong Cheok Keng, who is also a lawyer, was seen entering the station at 3.10 pm.
The gate of the police station was locked and journalists were not allowed to enter.
On Saturday, CID director Datuk Huzir Mohamed said police would record Koon’s statement soon following police reports lodged against him for allegedly making disparaging remarks against armed forces personnel on Aug 14.
Koon, a founder of Gamuda Bhd, has since apologised for his remarks after he was criticised by various quarters, including Defence Minister Mohamad Sabu.
