KUALA LUMPUR: Criminal action cannot be taken against the 41-year-old Malaysian who married an 11-year-old Thai girl because there is as yet, insufficient evidence to build a watertight case against him, says Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail (pic).

"We need to investigate the case further and build a watertight case so that such incidences will not happen again, period," she said during her ministerial reply on the motion of thanks on the royal address in Parliament today (July 31).
