KUALA LUMPUR – Professor Dr. P. Ramasamy showed up at the Bukit Aman Police Headquarters to give his statement over two articles published by MalaysiaGazette and Malaysia Kini earlier.
The Deputy Chief Minister II of Penang arrived at the police station at 9.50 am along with his lawyer, Regunath Kesavan.
Speaking to the journalists out side Bukit Aman, Ramasamy said that he was requested by the Classified Criminal Investigation Unit of the Bukit Aman Prosecution and Law Division (D5) to get his statement recorded over the two articles published by the two news portals.
“A statement entitled New Government but the Police Still at the Same Old Notch which was published in MalaysiaGazette.
“Several days later, I was also told that the police would like to record my statement over the article in Malaysia Kini entitled, Who Am I? Terrorist or Peacemaker in Sri Lanka, Acheh, Columbia and Mindanao.
“I think, perhaps there are police reports on those issues. Therefore, I travel from Penang to cooperate with the police,” he said before entering the Bukit Aman.
Ramasamy added, he is scheduled to get his statements recorded at 10.00 am.
However, the Perai State Assemblyman denied that the accusations were politically based for the Indians.
“I hope not… I hope not. This is not about the Indians, Chinese or Malays.
“I think the police have the rights and authority to take statements from me and I will always cooperate and I’m free to express my opinion and talk now compared to previously (the previous government).
“I am a Malaysian who has the rights to write and talk on several issues. So, it is up to the police and the authority to decide if it is against the law of Malaysia.
“I hope that they will record my statement and release me before lunch as I also need to prepare for the Deepavali,” he said. -MalaysiaGazette
