Police record Bozz Jebat's statement for allegedly insulting Sarawak Premier

KUALA LUMPUR: The police have recorded a statement from Bozz Jebat, also known as Zool Amali Hussin, for allegedly insulting Sarawak Premier Tan Sri Abang Johari Abang Openg.

Cheras District police chief ACP Zam Halim Jamaluddin stated that the Criminal Investigation Division of the Kuching District Police headquarters sought the assistance of the Classified Crime Investigation Unit (USJT) to record the verbal statement of the former Seremban Umno youth chief.

"The USJT unit used the Cheras District Police Criminal Investigation Office to record Zool Amali's statement from 1.45 pm to 3.40 pm today," he said in a statement.

Zool Amali is facing allegations of making disrespectful statements and demeaning the Sarawak Premier in a four-minute video shared by an individual on social media on Feb 29.

Zam Halim added that the case is being investigated under Section 4(1) of the Sedition Act 1948 and the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.

Earlier media reports stated that the Political Secretary to Sarawak Premier, John Nyigor, had lodged police reports at the Satok Police Station in Kuching against Zool Amali, who allegedly also made statements in the video suggesting that Sarawak is not part of Malaysia.

According to the police, 45 reports were lodged against Zool Amali. – Bernama
