Police to record Muhyiddin's statement over 'fatwa' on Sept 11

KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Aman will be recording Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin's statement on Monday (Sept 11) in connection with an investigation into a recent ceramah by the former prime minister.

Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay said Bukit Aman CID's Special Investigation Unit had already contacted the Perikatan Nasional chairman.

"The appointment to record his statement has been set for 10am on Monday.

"His statement will be recorded at the Mida office in KL Sentral," he said when contacted on Tuesday (Sept 5).

He added that two police reports have been lodged so far over the issue.

Muhyiddin was earlier reported to have made a statement that it is "haram" or sinful to vote for Pakatan Harapan's Pulai parliamentary seat candidate Suhaizan Kaiat.

In another development, Ayob Khan said an investigation paper (IP) on 3R (race, religion, royalty) was opened during the campaign period for the Pulai and Simpang Jeram by-elections.

"The IP was on a ceramah by PAS president Tan Sri Abdul Hadi Awang, in Bakri, Muar, last month over the Pardons Board."
