Journalist: Datuk made death threat against me

SEREMBAN: A journalist from a Malay daily has lodged a police report alleging that he had received a death threat from a man claiming to be a Datuk. 

The verbal threat was apparently made during a telephone call to the journalist yesterday. 

In his report, the journalist said the Datuk was from an aviation association which was being investigated by the authorities for allegedly operating without the necessary documentation. 

District police chief Assistant Commissioner Hasanudin Hassan, when contacted, confirmed the report. 

He said that the case would be investigated for criminal intimidation. 

It is learnt that the journalist got the threat following an article he wrote about the Youth and Sports Experimental Aircraft Association. 

Meanwhile, State Youth and Sports Committee chairman Datuk Mohamad Rais Zainuddin said the Higher Education Ministry and the Youth and Sports Ministry would conduct their own probe on the matter.
