KUALA LUMPUR: Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister Datuk Dr Mohd Khairuddin Aman Razali has entered Bukit Aman for another round of questioning.

He was seen entering the compound of the police headquarters around 8pm Thursday (Aug 27).

On Wednesday (Aug 26), police recorded his statement at the parliament building.
