Sentul cops take Hannah Yeoh's statement

KUALA LUMPUR: Youth and Sports Minister Hannah Yeoh says she will give full cooperation to the police over the "Jom Ziarah Gereja" programme probe.

The Segambut MP, who arrived at the Sentul district police headquarters at about 5.30pm on Monday (March 20), said she gave her statement and cooperated with the police.

"I am ready to cooperate fully. I don't want to waste any time.

"My statement (to the police) will be consistent with the things I said in Parliament," said Yeoh, adding she had also answered Chegubard's (Badrul Hisham Shaharin) accusations.

Yeoh said there was a line that should not be crossed when making political statements.

"I hope the police will be able to wrap up their investigation," she told reporters in front of the Sentul IPD on Monday (March 20).

Yeoh was accompanied by her lawyer Sangeet Kaur Deo and several others.

On Sunday (March 19), Kuala Lumpur police chief Comm Datuk Azmi Abu Kassim said police have opened an investigation paper over the programme.

Although the programme has since been cancelled, Comm Azmi said the investigation should be conducted as police reports were lodged.

On March 14, Yeoh said in the Dewan Rakyat that the programme did not involve Muslims.
