KUALA LUMPUR: Community Communications Department (J-Kom) assistant officer Abdul Wahab Abdul Kadir Jilani has confirmed the identity of “Mr H” with the police, says his lawyer Faizal Rahman.
Abdul Wahab, he said, had his statement recorded at Bukit Aman yesterday.
“He entered Bukit Aman at 11am and came out at 2.30pm.
“He was not ready to speak to reporters so he instructed me to do so on his behalf to the media,” said Faizal when met outside the Bukit Aman main entrance yesterday.
His client, he said, had confirmed the identity of Mr H with police investigators, adding that “Mr H also holds a position within J-Kom”.
“Based on this, we believe that our part is complete and we leave it to the police.
“My client is still scared but is in stable condition. He is also still on medication for depression,” he said, adding that Abdul Wahab was expected to lodge a police report today.
Police were supposed to have recorded Abdul Wahab’s statement on Sunday 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 that 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.
