Let cops probe sexual assault claim on ex-minister, says Muhyiddin

KUALA LUMPUR: Home Minister Muhyiddin Yassin said he is leaving it to the police to investigate the case where an MP is alleged to have molested an underaged girl.

“Yes,I received a report on the case from the Inspector-General of Police. Let the police investigate,” he said at the Parliament lobby today.

The MP in question was quizzed by police at the Federal Police headquarters today.

Commenting on reports that Umno has been issued a show-cause letter by the Registrar of Societies which could lead to its de-registration, Muhyiddin said he was leaving the matter fully in the hands of the RoS.

“I am not sure whether the show-cause letter was issued to dissolve Umno or for an administrative issue because the RoS is responsible for how organisations registered with it are run.

“Each year it has to obtain information on how a party or organisation is managed and if there are irregularities, it is up to RoS to act,” he said.

The PPBM president drew attention to the fact that RoS had once issued a temporary dissolution order to the party because it did not submit the required documents.
