KUALA LUMPUR: The MCA is urging the police and the Attorney General's Chambers to shed light on two cases involving a ministers' son and a deputy minister's aide respectively.

MCA deputy president Datuk Dr Mah Hang Soon said that in January this year, the son of Defence Minister Mohamad Sabu was arrested in a drug raid.

He said Malaysians were astonished that police had said they would need one month for a chemistry test report, but it had been more than two months since then.

"If it involves ordinary Malaysians, the urine test results would be known in a few days," he said.

Dr Mah said he did not mean to be personal by bringing up the matter, but he wanted to ensure that was were no double standards when it came to such cases.

He said the government had talked a lot about transparency and accountability, and the MCA hoped that they "walk the talk".

Dr Mah also asked about the status of an aide to Deputy Home Minister Azis Jamman, who allegedly outraged the modesty of a woman by taking an upskirt video of her at an optician's shop.

He said the incident took place in September last year.

"What's the status of this case? Was the aide charged?" he asked, adding that there was CCTV footage of the incident.

Dr Mah said he was not sure if the media had missed any developments for the two cases, but urged the police and AG to reply.

"Both cases are of public interest and we want to know what has happened since then," he said.
