KUALA LUMPUR – The police will be calling the leader of Parti Warisan Sabah (Warisan), Mohamaddin Ketapi over his recent controversial statement on the Lahad Datu intrusion.
The Deputy Director of Classified Criminal Investigation Unit (CCID)(Prosecution and Legal Division) D5, Deputy Commissioner Mior Faridahlathrash Wahid said, the Bukit Aman is investigating the former minister and his statement which was strongly condemned and received various public reactions.
“At the moment, the police have received 35 police reports nationwide on Mohamaddin Ketapi, demanding for stern actions.
“The Classified Criminal Investigation Unit D5 of Bukit Aman has opened an investigation paper and is managing the investigation of the case.
“We have yet to determine the number of people who would be called but Mohamaddin and those we feel necessary for the case would be called for statement recording soon,” he told MalaysiaGazette.
According to Mior Faridahlathrash, the reports were received nationwide, including Sabah since yesterday.
The case will be investigated under Section 505(b) of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.
In the Sabah state election campaign at Kampung Warisan, Mohamaddin said that the Kampung Tanduo tragedy in Lahad Datu which sacrificed 10 police and military in 2013 was merely a drama. He also said that it was merely a fight between ‘chickens’ and ‘dogs’.
The video clip of Mohamaddin’s speech went viral in the social media since Sunday and received strong criticisms from various quarters, including the Malaysian Armed Forces. The matter was followed by dozens of police reports demanding stern actions against the rude leader who did not respect the national security personnel.
Some also urged the voters in Sabah to reject Mohamaddin and candidates from Warisan in the state election. –MalaysiaGazette
