‘Let MCMC probe alleged leak of Zayn’s case’


JOHOR BARU: The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) will work with the police to investigate the alleged leaked investigation papers on Zayn Rayyan Abdul Matiin’s murder case on Telegram, says Fahmi Fadzil.

The Communications Minister said that action could be taken against those involved in leaking the documents as it involved a court case.

“So far, I have yet to receive information on the matter, but I will have MCMC reach out to the police and look into what action that could be taken against those involved.

“We do not know whether what was spread was the investigation papers or fake documents.

“If it is, then there are parties that need to come out with an explanation, and if not, action should be taken against those spreading lies and misinformation,” he said at a press conference during the ‘Sembang Santai’ programme here yesterday.

He said this in response to a question whether the MCMC would take action following the leaked documents on local watchdog Edisi Siasat’s Telegram.

Fahmi, who is also the government’s spokesperson, urged the public to leave the matter to the authorities and not to speculate.

“This case has been brought to court.

“Let them (the court) carry out their responsibility. At the same time, we should not make any speculations,” he said.

Edisi Siasat reportedly shared investigation papers of the case on its Telegram on Thursday, which had since made its rounds on social media.
