KUALA LUMPUR: A member of the Bar Council lodged a police report against the council's president, Lim Chee Wee, whom he claimed had made a seditious statement in relation to the amendment to the Mufti and Fatwa Enactment (Kedah Darul Aman) 2008.

Mohd Khairul Azam Abd Aziz, who made the report at the Dang Wangi police headquarters at 11am Tuesday, told reporters that he considered Lim's statement on the council's website to be seditious and that it could incite hatred towards 'fatwa' or the State Fatwa Committee.
