KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Aman has already recorded the statement of the commissioner of oaths in connection with the statutory declaration (SD) alleging that a prominent opposition politician committed sodomy, says Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador, adding that it is a waste of police resources.

"This matter is a waste of the police resources, and I am sick of such matters. However, a police report has been lodged, thus an investigation paper has been opened," the IGP said.

The Inspector-General of Police said the Bukit Aman CID had already taken the statement of the commissioner of oath on the matter.

"We are also in the midst of recording the statement of the one who made the SD as well," he told a press conference after an excellent awards ceremony in Bukit Aman on Tuesday (Aug 18).

Investigations were still ongoing, he added.

It was reported that Bukit Aman is investigating a statutory declaration (SD) that alleged a prominent Opposition politician committed sodomy.

Bukit Aman CID deputy director Deputy Comm Mior Faridalathrash Wahid confirmed that a police report had been lodged on the matter.

"We confirm that a report was lodged, and we are investigating the matter from all angles.

"We hope the public will refrain from speculating as the matter is under investigation," he said when contacted on Tuesday.

It was learnt that the individual who made the SD lodged the report after the document was posted on an online blog recently.

Malaysiakini reported that the SD contained explicit details, which the man claimed he had sex with the politician four times in 2013 at different hotels in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Johor and Penang.

He also claimed that for each time, he was given RM300 cash.

The portal reported that the man also alleged that upon the request of the politician, he also introduced a friend to him. This friend was purportedly sodomised by the politician and paid the same amount.

The SD was dated June 29,2020.

The portal also reported that the man who made the SD confirmed a police report was lodged.
