Police expect to record a statement soon from the individual suspected of spreading an allegation that staff of the Kelantan state secretariat (SUK) tried to jump queue to be among the early recipients of the Covid-19 vaccine.

Kelantan police chief Shafien Mamat said they had contacted the suspect in Putrajaya to fix a date to record his statement.

“Police have recorded statements from seven witnesses so far in the investigation,” he told reporters after monitoring compliance with SOPs to curb the spread of Covid-19 at Sekolah Kebangsaan (SK) Mulong 2 in Kota Bharu today.

On March 3, the Kelantan Local Government, Housing and Health Committee chairman’s special officer, Mohamad Taufik Ramli, lodged a police report against the individual for alleging that 200 Kelantan SUK staff had attempted to jump queue for vaccination under the first phase of the national Covid-19 immunisation programme.
