IPOH: Two officers from the Johor Baru North police headquarters on Wednesday recorded a statement from former Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin over his Twitter statement on the bid for the WWW 1 vehicle registration number by the Sultan of Johor.

The district's CID chief DSP Sanawi Muhamad, who led the investigation with DSP Sukiman Arshad, arrived at the Perak PAS office, here, at about 2pm and took about an hour to record Nizar's statement.

The Perak PAS deputy commissioner told reporters that he answered all the 28 questions from the police officers.

"They (police) have investigated and I have given my statement, so I leave the matter to them as I respect the police," he said.

Nizar said the case was being investigated under Section 4(1)(b) of the Sedition Act.

On Monday, Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein said Johor police had received 39 police reports over Mohammad Nizar's offending statement. -- Bernama
