Najib Razak

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Najib Razak has arrived at Bukit Aman, where he is expected to have his statement recorded in connection with investigations into his alleged defamatory statement against Teluk Intan MP Nga Kor Ming.

He arrived at about 11am Friday (Oct 18), accompanied by a group of supporters.

Prior to this, Najib had posted on his Facebook (FB) page saying that he would be going to Bukit Aman to give his statement in relation to Nga's allegations that he had been defamed.

"I don't rule out the possibility that it is the Pakatan Harapan's way to close down or block my Facebook page.

"The Selangor palace has lodged a report on Nga on the basis of sedition over a posting on Selangor Sultan.

"Nga then lodged a police report saying I had defamed him," he said.

Najib said he had not defamed Nga and that he would give information and proof to the police.

Nga, who is also the Perak DAP chairman, had urged police to investigate the FB page "Najib Razak".

On Sept 30, through his FB posting, Najib called on the Pakatan government to take action against Nga over an alleged seditious statement made against Selangor's Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, which was apparently posted on Nga's FB account.

This was in response to a Sept 29 posting on the "Nga Kor Ming Super Fans Page" which asked the Chinese to protest against the Sultan for decreeing that bilingual road signs in Selangor be removed.

However, Nga denied that he and the DAP were involved in the post, saying the FB account was a fake one.
