GEORGE TOWN – The investigation paper on Penang’s Voluntary Patrol Unit (PPS) which was returned to police yesterday will be submitted to the Prosecution Unit head (KUP) next week.
Penang deputy police chief Datuk A.Thaiveegan said police needed to furnish some details, including statements from parties concerned as well as PPS leaders to ensure the investigation paper on the case was complete.
“KUP wants the police to furnish several matters including statements from PPS leaders, so we are complying before sending the paper back next week.
“Investigations on the case are still proceeding and police also want PPS personnel in the state to come forward to surrender themselves at the nearest police station to facilitate investigation,” he told a press conference here yesterday.
On Sunday, police detained 156 PPS personnel, including the chairman of the unit, who is the State Welfare, Caring Community and Environment Committee chairman Phee Boon Poh, for ignoring warning not to conduct activities after PPS had been found not registered with the Registrar of Societies.
The next day, police also detained Seri Delima state assemblyman RSN Rayer and yesterday PPS deputy chairman Ng Wei Aik, who is Tanjung Member of Parliament was also held to assist investigations on the team set up by the DAP-led state government. – Bernama
