DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng was present at the Timur Laut district police headquarters in George Town today to record his statement over the Pakatan Harapan (PH) Presidential Council’s joint statement on June 12, regarding the current state of emergency.
Accompanied by lawyer RSN Rayer, he arrived at the police headquarters at about 11.25am and left about an hour later.
Speaking to reporters when met at the police headquarters, Rayer said Lim, who is also the Bagan MP, had given his statement and provided full cooperation to police officers from the Bukit Aman Classified Criminal Investigations Unit.
“The police officers informed us that they finished recording Lim Guan Eng’s statement today.
“The case is being investigated under Section 505 (b) of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1988,” he said.
Bukit Aman confirmed that they had opened an investigation paper on the joint statement, allegedly questioning the decision of Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin to propose a proclamation of emergency nationwide, to curb the spread of Covid-19.
Other parties involved in the joint statement are PKR president Anwar Ibrahim and Amanah president Mohamad Sabu.
Police recorded Anwar’s statement at the PKR headquarters in Kuala Lumpur on Feb 26, while Mohamad is expected to have his statement recorded tomorrow.
