PETALING JAYA: Police have denied that musician Yuri Wong was arrested for allegedly composing and posting on YouTube a remix of a song related to remarks made by the Prime Minister about kangkung.
City police acting CID chief Asst Comm Khairi Ahrasa confirmed that Wong has not been arrested.
“We are not involved in any investigation on the matter,” he told The Star Online.
Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Mohd Adnan Abdullah also confirmed that the state police were not investigating the musician.
News emerged on blogs that police detained Wong on Thursday over the song that was posted on Youtube with footage of the Prime Minister's remarks on the price of kangkung.
PKR-backed group Jingga 13 coordinator Fariz Musa posted a tweet saying Wong was arrested by police over the song. He said the posting was based on rumours.
“We heard that he was arrested on Thursday night but we are not sure. The next morning we heard that he was only called up by police to give a statement. We are trying to contact his lawyer to confirm what is going on,” he said.
