Video scandal: Wahab to meet investigators today


KUALA LUMPUR: Community Communications Department (J-Kom) assistant officer Abdul Wahab Abdul Kadir Jilani will meet Bukit Aman investigators on Wednesday (Nov 29).

"Yes. Confirmed," his lawyer Faizal Rahman said when asked about talk that Abdul Wahab would be at Bukit Aman in the afternoon.

Police were supposed to record Abdul Wahab’s statement on Sunday (Nov 26) but the appointment was cancelled as he was said to be suffering from severe depression.

The questioning is in connection with a viral video depicting former J-Kom director Dr Mohammad Agus Yusoff supposedly having an indecent conversation with a "Wahab".

Mohammad Agus has since claimed that the video was doctored to sabotage his reputation, and the person responsible was a high-ranking individual he called "Mr H".

Bukit Aman CID director Comm Datuk Seri Mohd Shuhaily Mohd Zain was quoted as saying that only Abdul Wahab could confirm the identity and role of Mr H in connection with the viral video.

He said while police had already recorded the statement of the man believed to be Mr H, his identity could not be verified until Abdul Wahab came forward.

"If Abdul Wahab can identify him and reveal his role in the incident, then we can positively identify Mr H," Comm Mohd Shuhaily had said.
