Santiago at Bukit Aman Monday over Zakir Naik’s police report

Klang MP Charles Santiago.

PETALING JAYA: Klang MP Charles Santiago will be at Bukit Aman tomorrow morning to facilitate investigations by the police over a report filed against him by controversial preacher Dr Zakir Naik.

The DAP leader confirmed today that he will be at the federal police headquarters in the city centre at 10.45am on Monday at the request of the police.

“Police are investigating a report lodged by Dr Zakir Naik. The media is kindly invited to cover the event,” Santiago said in a brief statement.

Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department chief Huzir Mohamed previously said his officers will call five individuals to assist in investigations on the matter.

Besides Santiago, the others are Human Resources Minister M Kula Segaran, former ambassador Dennis Ignatius, Penang Deputy Chief Minister II P Ramasamy and Bagan Dalam assemblyman Satees Muniandy.

Muniandy and Ramasamy were questioned by federal police in Penang last week.

Naik had claimed the five had made defamatory statements against him and wanted police to take action under the Penal Code and Sedition Act 1948 for defaming him and instigating racial disharmony and hatred among Malaysians.
