PETALING JAYA: Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali (pic) was not interrogated but merely had her statement taken over her presence at a rally last September, said police.

Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department director Comm Datuk Seri Wan Ahmad Najmuddin Mohd said the whole process was conducted professionally.

"We all respect her status and standing in the country.

"She was not pressured or intimidated in any way," he said in a statement on Sunday.

He added that even Dr Siti Hasmah herself had said that she was under no pressure while having her statement taken.

Comm Wan Ahmad Najmuddin said police are taking a serious look at those irresponsible parties who spread rumours saying otherwise.

It was reported that Dr Siti Hasmah, the 91-year-old wife of former prime minister and Pakatan Harapan chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was quizzed by police officers for 45 minutes at Yayasan Al Bukhary in Kuala Lumpur on Friday (Jan 26).

Dr Siti Hasmah was among those who spoke at the Wanita Bantah Politik Toksik (Women Against Toxic Politics) rally on Sept 10, 2017.

According to her, the police asked her who was the organiser of the rally, which was also attended by Dr Mahathir.
