KLUANG: Perak PAS deputy commissioner Datuk Seri Mohamad Nizar Jamaluddin is to give a statement to Johor police on Wednesday over his tweet on the successful bid for the WWW 1 car registration number by the Sultan of Johor.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said two police officers would record the statement from Mohamad Nizar who had agreed to give the statement.

"I was informed by Johor Chief Police Officer Datuk Mokhtar Shariff that Johor police had received 39 reports over Mohamad Nizar's statement on his Twitter account," he told reporters after a walkabout in Taman Sri Lambak here.

Hishammuddin said Mohamad Nizar had to undergo the routine investigation process.

Nizar had reportedly questioned the sultan's RM520,000 successful bid for the car registration number, apparently implying that the sultan had used public funds to make the purchase.

Over 500 members of 26 NGOs in Johor marched a distance of three kilometres in Johor Baru in protest against Nizar's tweet.

Replying to a question, Hishammuddin said Nizar was being investigated under the Sedition Act. - Bernama
