Tajuddin questioned by cops over alleged SOP breach

KUALA LUMPUR: Pasir Salak MP Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman (pic) has been questioned by police for allegedly flouting the standard operating procedure (SOP) during a press conference recently.

The former Prasarana chairman arrived at the Dang Wangi police headquarters in a silver Mercedes Benz S-Class car at around 4.45pm on Thursday (May 27).

He spent about an hour giving a statement to police before he was seen leaving the police headquarters at around 5.45pm.

He did not speak to members of the media who were camped outside there since noon.

Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Zainal Abdullah said they have taken Tajuddin’s statement.

"In all, five individuals had their statements taken today including Muar MP Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman and three Prasarana staff members," he said when contacted.

Earlier on Thursday, Syed Saddiq was seen entering the police headquarters at 12.30pm.

He said he spent around one and a half hours with investigators.

"The investigation is connected to the tweet I posted on Tajuddin.”

This was his second time being called up in the span of a week to have his statement taken.

Last Saturday (May 22), Syed Saddiq gave a statement to police after he commented on the death of A. Ganapathy in police custody.

On Tuesday (May 25), Tajuddin held a press conference following the LRT mishap.

He was seen only wearing a face shield without a face mask.

Subsequently, Saddiq Syed said in a tweet that wearing a face shield without a face mask was a violation of SOP under the current movement control order.

In the post, he included screenshots of two news reports, one with a photograph of Tajuddin and another with Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
