KUALA LUMPUR: The police have recommended that the two men allegedly behind the cash bounty to slap Seputeh MP Teresa Kok be charged for criminal intimidation.

City CID chief Senior Asst Comm Gan Kong Meng said, however, the investigation papers, which was submitted to the Attorney-General’s Chambers have been returned.

“The papers were sent back by the AG as there are a few details which need to be ironed out,” he told a press conferece at the city police headquarters on Wednesday.

He said the police would finalise the investigation and re-submit the papers as soon as possible.

SAC Gan said the police have submitted the investigation papers on the investigation related to the video and are waiting for further instructions.

Two men had allegedly issued the RM1,200 bounty to anyone who slaps Kok after she released her controversial Chinese New Year video Onederful Malaysia.

The video clip, starring Kok as a feng shui host interviewing three panelist, was uploaded on Jan 27 and was shared widely on Facebook.

The clip poked fun on various issues, including the current education system in the country and the terrorist intrusion in Sabah last year.

On Feb 6, about 50 people claiming to be part of the Council of Muslim NGOs protested along Jalan Tun Perak against Kok’s video offering a RM500 reward to anyone who slapped her.

The amount was later raised to RM1,200.
