PETALING JAYA: The employer who allegedly assaulted his two bodyguards for fasting has issued an apology.
"If what I said to my bodyguards has offended anyone, I think I should apologise to all Muslims in the country, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and my two former bodyguards," he said in Mandarin outside the Dang Wangi police headquarters on Saturday (April 17).
"I did not intend to insult anyone with what I said," he said while in handcuffs and accompanied by two policemen. He was then taken away in a police car.
On Wednesday (April 14), the police received a report on the employer, who was supposedly upset that his two bodyguards were fasting during Ramadan.
The complainant, a 26-year-old bodyguard, told the police that the incident occurred at a condominium in Jalan Pinang.
He claimed that he and a colleague were slapped after telling the suspect they were fasting when he asked them.
The complainant added that they then followed the suspect to his house in Batu Nilam, Klang, where they were beaten with a cane.
A gun was also allegedly pointed at one of the bodyguards as the employer supposedly threatened and insulted them.
The employer is also linked to illegal gambling and loan shark activities.
Police seized RM28.54mil worth of gold bars and cash in foreign denominations, mobile phones, a cane, a pistol and five bullets following a raid in Bukit Tinggi on Wednesday.
Dang Wangi police are expected to complete the investigation by Monday and will then refer the investigation paper (IP) to the Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP).
