Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim was present at the federal police headquarters in Bukit Aman, Kuala Lumpur, today to facilitate investigations into the audio clip purportedly containing a conversation between him and Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Anwar was seen arriving at the headquarters complex at 10am. He left at 11.20am.

He told reporters that he was there to give his statement and cooperation to the police.

“I was called to Bukit Aman today as a witness in the audio clip that purportedly contains a conversation between me and the Umno president.

“So I gave my cooperation to the police and they are investigating the case under Section 505(b) of the Penal Code,” he said.

Under Section 505(b) of the Penal Code, investigations can be carried out into any individual who makes any statement, rumour or report with the intent to cause fear or alarm to the public.

The four-minute audio clip contains a conversation between two individuals with voices resembling those of Zahid and Anwar, discussing matters related to the Umno general assembly last month.
