KUALA LUMPUR – Former Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin today gave his statement to the Bukit Aman Police over the allegation that he had revealed government secrets in the Dewan Rakyat recently.
The Pagoh Member of Parliament arrived at the Bukit Aman Police headquarters at 10 am and exited the building two hours later.
Speaking to reporters later, Muhyiddin said an assistant commissioner of police (ACP) recorded his statement concerning his speech when debating the Supply Bill 2017 at the recent Dewan Rakyat sitting.
“As a Member of Parliament, I have the parliamentary immunity as provided by the Federal Constitution…Parliament is the most appropriate platform for its members to perform their duties,” he said.
Also present were Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali and Batu Member of Parliament Tian Chua.
On Nov 4, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar was reported as saying that three former Cabinet ministers would be investigated under the Sedition Act 1948 and the Official Secret Act 1972 for allegedly revealing government secrets, including those linked to 1Malaysia Development Berhad.
Former Rural and Regional Development Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal already gave his statement to Bukit Aman on Nov 7, while former Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah has yet to do so. – BERNAMA
