The investigation papers on the allegedly leaked documents on the cases of former prime minister Najib Razak and his wife, Rosmah Mansor, have been handed back to the police for clarification.
Kuala Lumpur police chief Azmi Abu Kassim said the papers on both cases were handed back the first time after being referred to the deputy public prosecutor on Aug 30. The papers on Najib’s case were referred again on Sept 5, but handed back once more for the completion of several details.
"We are doing our best to complete the investigation papers as soon as possible after obtaining advice from the deputy public prosecutor," he said in a press conference at the Kuala Lumpur contingent police headquarters today.
A total of 27 individuals were called to record their statements, 17 on Najib’s case and 10 on Rosmah’s, after the Chief Registrar’s Office of the Federal Court lodged police reports over the allegedly leaked documents.
In a separate development, Azmi said the investigation papers on PKR deputy president Rafizi Ramli, who allegedly slandered Minister in Prime Minister’s Department (Special Functions) Abd Latiff over the littoral combat ship project, are still being completed and are expected to be referred to the deputy public prosecutor this week.
Rafizi is alleged to have made four slanderous statements on Aug 22, 25, 26 and 29 on a blog that was then shared on Facebook, Twitter and TikTok.
