KUALA LUMPUR: Investigations on Bersih 2.0 chairman Maria Chin Abdullah is ongoing even though she has been released, says Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar (pic).
He said Maria was released after police had gathered sufficient information from her although under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act (Sosma), she can be detained for 28 days.
“Maria’s case is by no means closed.
“We are still investigating and will present the investigation papers to the Attorney-General in one month,” he told a press conference after witnessing the handing over of high powered motorcycles in Bukit Aman on Tuesday.
Maria was released on Monday after a 10-day detention from the eve of Bersih 5.0 on Nov 19.
Khalid did not ruled out the possibility that Maria would be rearrested under the Peaceful Assembly Act.
On the raid on Empower on Monday, the IGP said police was there to collect evidence and documents based on information that the organisation received funds from overseas.
“Empower is also Maria’s old office,” he said.
On the donation of the motorcycles, IGP said it was courtesy of Felda Global Ventures.
“It will be used to patrol the east coast of Sabah,” he said.
