GEORGE TOWN: DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng has been summoned by police at the George Town police headquarters over a media statement issued by the Pakatan Harapan presidential council regarding the current Emergency on Jan 12.

His lawyer RSN Rayer said he was contacted by an investigating officer Asst Supt Mohd Khairul Ridzuan Khairuddin from Bukit Aman's Prosecution and Law Division (D5) of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) on Tuesday (March 9) telling him that Lim must present himself at the police headquarters on Thursday (March 11).

"The police are investigating the DAP secretary-general and Bagan MP Lim Guan Eng for a media statement issued by the Pakatan Harapan presidential council on Jan 12,2021.

"Lim is expected to give his statement to the police at the George Town police headquarters tomorrow (March 11) at 11.30am," he said in a statement.

In February, the former finance minister was called up by Bukit Aman over a statement issued by the Opposition coalition regarding the Emergency Proclamation.

He was supposed to be present at Bukit Aman to have his statement recorded on Feb 25, but it had since been postponed.
