Cops call in Maba chief over flag incident

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Police called in the President of the Malaysian Basketball Association (Maba) over the incident where a flag with a five-pointed star – supposed to represent Malaysia's – was displayed at the opening ceremony of a basketball tournament at the Maba Stadium Monday (Nov 25) night.

Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Seri Mazlan Lazim said he had called Maba president Datuk Lua Choon Hann to the Kuala Lumpur Contingent Police Headquarters at 8am Tuesday (Nov 26) to give his statement.

He said Tan explained that the incident was a result of a mistake caused by information technology consultants.

"The Maba president met with me this morning to explain the incident and I had asked him to make a police report at the Tun H.S. Lee police station.

"The consultant was also called in and investigated if the incident had a specific motive or was intentional or otherwise," he told a press conference after the National Hero Service Medal (PJPN) awards ceremony at the Kuala Lumpur Police Training Centre (Pulapol) here. Investigation papers have been opened, he added.

In addition, Mazlan advised all parties to check and make sure that specifications of the Jalur Gemilang for any event were met.

On Tuesday, the Malaysian Basketball Association (Maba) apologised and claimed full responsibility for displaying the flag. – Bernama
