JOHOR BARU: The investigation papers involving former Sedili assemblyman Rasman Ithnain's sexual harassment case have been completed, says Johor police chief Comm Datuk Kamarul Zaman Mamat.

Comm Kamarul said that the papers had been submitted to Bukit Aman's Prosecution and Legal Department last week and are awaiting further instructions.

"We have forwarded the investigation papers to the legal department for them to look into the investigation that we have carried out.

"We are still waiting for their decision. So far, we have taken statements from 11 individuals, including the assemblyman and the victim," he said.

He said this in a press conference at the Johor police headquarters here on Wednesday (Jan 26).

Comm Kamarul was responding to questions on the latest development of the Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) assemblyman's sexual harassment case.

Last Monday (Jan 17), a woman in her 20's claimed that she had been sexually harassed by Rasman on more than one occasion.

Rasman later denied the accusations, claiming that it was a political conspiracy and an attempt to tarnish his reputation.

On Sunday (Jan 23), Bersatu information chief Mohd Solihan Badri said Rasman would not be nominated to contest in the Sedili state seat if he is found guilty of sexual harassment.

"The case is under police investigation. If he is proven to be guilty, we will act accordingly.

"We will not take a candidate who is proven guilty," said Solihan, who is also former Tenang assemblyman.
