KUALA LUMPUR: Rural and Regional Development Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal on Monday issued a press statement regarding a police report lodged by a man alleging that the minister had paid a large amount of money to a local artiste.

“I have been following closely various reports in the media and blogs that have linked my name to a police report dated March 13, 2012, by a person named Noor Azman Azemi, who claims to be under my employ as a driver, linking me with the payment of a large amount of money to an artiste by the name of Zahida Mohamed Rafik.

“I wish to state that everything that has been mentioned in the police report is completely untrue and that the subsequent comments by individuals who have distributed copies of the police report is with bad intent and politically motivated.

“I am prepared to take legal action against anyone who continues to defame me and link me with this issue,” he said.
