KUALA LUMPUR: Opposition Leader Lim Kit Siang has challenged a federal deputy minister to sue him over his statement that the latter was being investigated by police for links to triads in Sarawak. 

Lim had on Monday posed the question in Parliament and at a press conference outside Parliament whether the deputy minister was under investigation. 

“The people want an answer from the deputy minister. Why is he being secretive and shy about it? If he is not being investigated, then come out and declare so. 

“He owes it to the people to say whether he is the deputy minister referred to in police investigations,” Lim told reporters at the Parliament lobby yesterday. 

It was reported that a deputy minister and a senior politician from Sarawak, both Datuks, were under police investigation for gangsterism, illegal logging and attempted bribery of senior police officers.  

In Kuching, state Deputy Commissioner of Police Senior Asst Comm (I) Datuk Abdul Rahman Hussain said no politician or Datuk has been arrested so far in the ongoing police operation against gangsterism in Sarawak.
