KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Defence Minister Mohamad Sabu says the Army is investigating an allegation that has gone viral on social media that a senior official had punched one of his subordinates.

In a statement, he said the investigation would be conducted independently and fairly.

“As the Minister of Defence, I have taken note of this. The Army is conducting an immediate investigation and will issue a detailed report on the incident.

“I assure you that the investigation will be conducted independently and fairly, and there will be no ‘cover-ups’,” he said on Thursday (Feb 7).

He also urged all parties to remain patient and refrain from making allegations to protect the good name of the Army and the Malaysian Armed Forces.

On Tuesday (Feb 5), a minute-long video recording showing a man believed to be a senior officer dressed in plain clothes punching a fully armed soldier guarding the entrance gate to the Sungai Udang military camp in Melaka went viral on social media. –  Bernama
