KUALA LUMPUR: Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar has urged all television stations to cancel the proposed live telecast of a debate on the Taman Manggis land issue as the case is under investigation by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

He said if the debate between Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan and Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng was allowed to take place, it would affect the investigations and prejudice the witnesses and the case.

"@PDRMsia agrees with @SPRMMalaysia, the Manggis bungalow debate should be cancelled. Police investigations are still ongoing. Key witnesses, including the Chief Minister have not been called," he said on Twitter on Friday night.

Khalid tweeted: "@PDRMsia asks all TV stations to cancel the live debate before the case is settled."

He said if Abdul Rahman had any evidence regarding the sale of the land, he should report it to the police or MACC as soon as possible.

Prior to this, RTM and Media Prima Berhad had expressed readiness to televise the live the debate on their television channels. – Bernama
