KUALA LUMPUR: Two investigation papers have been opened on Mohd Asri Hamid, better known as Asri Janggut, in connection with his statement that police and Armed Forces personnel allegedly did not perform their daily prayers.
The statements were made during an interview which was posted on Sinar Harian's Facebook page and in another video made with Persatuan Pengguna Islam Malaysia (PPIM).
Bukit Aman CID director Comm Datuk Huzir Mohamed said the videos insulted the two agencies.
"We are classifying the case under Section 505(c) and Section 505(b) of the Penal Code as well as Section 233 of the Communication and Multimedia Act 1998," he told a press conference after attending the handing over ceremony for the Deputy IGP's post on Thursday (Aug 13).
All witnesses, including the interview subject and host, will be called up soon for their statements to be recorded, he added.
"All actions are conducted in accordance with the law. We hope the public will refrain from making, producing or spreading any statement or rumours that might jeopardise security and public order," he said.
