KUALA LUMPUR: A police report was lodged against Shah Alam MP Khalid Samad (pic) on Wednesday morning over his blog posting that allegedly questioned the constitutional law.

The report was lodged by Azam Aziz and Co advocates and solicitors lawyer Mohd Khairul Azam Abdul Aziz at the Dang Wangi police headquarters at about 11am Wednesday.

In the posting on Friday, Khalid allegedly questioned the constitutional law for giving the Selangor Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah power to have a say on who should be appointed as the new Menteri Besar.

Speaking to reporters outside of the headquarters, Mohd Khairul said such action should be condemned.

"In his post, we could see that he was indirectly questioning the constitutional law.

"Although he claimed that the statement was taken from an unknown source, he should not have shared it.

"As a politician, he should know that he cannot simply quote anything or anyone off the Internet without verifying its credibility.

"By blindly sharing information to others, he can easily mislead a lot of people and also be charged for sedition," he said.

Mohd Khairul added that Khalid's statement could also pose a threat to the institution of the monarchy.

He urged the authorities to investigate the case under Section 121 of the Penal Code for waging war against the Agong and under Section 3 (3) of the Sedition Act 1948 for sedition.

District OCPD Asst Comm Rasdi Ramli confirmed the report.
