GEORGE TOWN: Jelutong MP Jeff Ooi has arrived at the George Town district police headquarters for questioning over a tweet in relation to the death of Datuk Dr Haron Din.
He was accompanied by his lawyer, Seri Delima assemblyman R.S.N. Rayer, when he arrived at 2.30pm Tuesday.
Ooi has been in the limelight over his “Adios Harun Din. Let there be peace” tweet posted after the death of the PAS spiritual leader.
Five police reports were lodged against the DAP parliamentarian over the allegedly offensive tweet.
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar urged Ooi on Monday to turn himself in and give his statement.
The state government has distanced itself from the tweet, with Chief Minister and party secretary-general Lim Guan Eng saying it did not represent the party’s stand.
