Anwar, Wan Azizah quizzed over rally

PETALING JAYA: Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has been queried by the police over a gathering in protest of the postponement of a special meeting of Parliament.

A group of policemen came to the PKR office yesterday morning to record statements from Anwar and his wife Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.

The couple left the office at around 12.30pm, with Dr Wan Azizah waving to the media.

Lawyer Datuk Sankara Nair, who spoke on behalf of the couple, confirmed that the police came to take their statements over the Aug 2 gathering.

Both of them gave their full cooperation, he added.

“Questions were asked about the gathering at Dataran Merdeka.

“I believe investigations are ongoing and several other MPs had been called up previously,” he said.

Sankara also said the case was being investigated under multiple sections, including Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act for the misuse of network facilities.

Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani had said earlier that 206 police reports were lodged over the rally.
