KUALA LUMPUR — The Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) have completed the investigation papers on the alleged insult of the Royal institution by former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad.

PDRM secretary Noorsiah Mohd Saaduddin said the investigation papers will be referred to the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) on June 6 (Tuesday) in line with the provision under Article 145(3) of the Federal Constitution.

Mahathir is also being investigated on the Malay Proclamation issue. Noorsiah said that police investigations was at the preliminary stage, and they will also be recording statements from PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang and Penang DAP deputy chairman P. Ramasamy.

Earlier, the Bukit Aman D5 Crime Investigation Unit had recorded statements from Mahathir at Yayasan Albukhary at 10.30 am Friday, to assist investigations into the alleged insult of the Royal Institution and Malay Proclamation issue.

She said the statement was recorded under Section 112 of the Criminal Procedure Code.

Mahathir Ready To Be Charged And Answer In Court

The former Langkawi Member of Parliament was accompanied by lawyer, Muhammad Rafique Rashid Ali during the process.

According to Rafique, Mahathir told the police that he was ready to be charged and would answer their questions in court.

The Malay Proclamation is the former prime minister’s latest initiative to “unite the Malay community”. It lists 12 key problems that it claims are being faced by the Malays, and also seeks to unite the community across the political divide.

Last month, PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang and several leaders of the Islamic party also signed the document to signify their support for Mahathir’s call for the Malays to unite and save the community.

Hadi Awang and several Pas leaders signed the document in support of Mahathir’s Malay Proclamation Rally.

Bersatu’s deputy president Ahmad Faizal Azumu, information chief Razali Idris and Supreme Council member Iskandar Dzulkarnain Abdul Khalid had also signed the document in their personal capacities. –– mediahit
