PETALING JAYA: Anti-graft activist Lalitha Kunaratnam has given her statement at Bukit Aman on Thursday (Feb 3) over the two articles she wrote on MACC chief commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki's shares controversy.

Lalitha arrived at 2.25pm together with her lawyer Manjeet Singh Dhillon and was questioned for almost four hours.

"I answered all 83 questions given and the officer who recorded my statement handled it professionally.

"I also gave a 15-page statement so that is why it took that long," she was quoted as saying by Sinar Harian on Thursday.

Meanwhile, her lawyer, Manjeet said that they would let the police carry out the investigation.

Azam had filed a defamation suit against Lalitha for articles she wrote on the share trading issue which were published on Oct 25 and Dec 15.

In a press conference on Jan 5, Azam had said he took a serious view of the allegations against him, saying that they were false and malicious.

However, Lalitha, through her lawyer Manjeet Singh Dillon, responded on Jan 9 saying that she stood by her articles.
