KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Aman is not ruling out the possibility of calling up more people in connection with a Facebook page that allegedly insulted Selangor's Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, says Comm Datuk Huzir Mohamed (pic).

Asked whether former premier Datuk Seri Najib Razak would be among those to be called up, the Bukit Aman CID director said police would call any persons of interest if the need arose.

"We have already recorded the statement of Dewan Rakyat Deputy Speaker Nga Kor Ming, and he will be required to come again to Bukit Aman so that we can resume recording his statement.

"We will call up others pertaining to the needs of the investigation," he told a press conference in Bukit Aman on Wednesday (Oct 9).

Prior to this on Monday, Deputy IGP Datuk Mazlan Mansor had said police were investigating the case following reports lodged over the "Nga Kor Ming Super Fans Page", which allegedly insulted Sultan Sharafuddin.

"We are taking the necessary steps in the investigation, including recording statements of those who can assist us.

"Let the police get to the bottom of the matter," he added.

It was reported that Nga, who is also Perak DAP chief, had said the Facebook page was not linked to him nor DAP but was masquerading as such.

In a statement, he said there were at least two "mirror pages" called "Nga Kor Ming Super Fans Page" and their content showed they came into existence from November 2018 and August this year.

Nga said the allegation by Najib that the page was linked to him was baseless, adding that it was a dirty political tactic against him.

He added that he had ordered his senior private secretary, Tan Tiong Yih, to lodge a police report on Wednesday (Oct 9) and to provide authorities with evidence of said conspiracy.
