KUALA LUMPUR: With the police force under him while he was Prime Minister for 22 years, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad says he is â€œalways worriedâ€ about being questioned by the officers.
“Yes, they (the police) are coming today.
“This is the third time they are questioning me,” he said, after officiating the launch of Perdana Global Peace Foundation’s War Disaster Fund.
It has been reported that Bukit Aman police would be questioning Dr Mahathir at Yayasan Albukhary at 3pm.
When asked if he was worried about being questioned, he replied: “I’m worried all the time.”
Last week, Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Noor Rashid Ibrahim said police are investigating Dr Mahathir’s statement that the Rulers were â€œplaced under house arrest.â€
Noor Rashid said that the police would record Dr Mahathir’s statement “when the time is right”.
It was reported that Dr Mahathir had claimed that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and other rulers had been placed under house arrest to prevent them from receiving the signatures of those who supported the Citizensâ€™ Declaration.
On May 23, Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission adviser Tunku Abdul Aziz Tunku Ibrahim lodged a report against Dr Mahathir regarding his claims, and said that allegations were â€œfalse and mischievousâ€.
