Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Zulkifli Mohamad Al Bakri.

KUALA LUMPUR: Kajang police today confirmed receiving two reports alleging that Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Zulkifli Mohamad Al Bakri had defied the movement control order (MCO).

Kajang police chief ACP Mohd Zaid Hassan said a police enquiry paper had been opened for the purpose of conducting a preliminary investigation.

“So far, only an oral statement from the complainant has been recorded.

“Statements from other parties will be taken upon instructions from the Selangor police contingent headquarters,” he told Bernama when contacted.

It is learnt that the 43-year-old complainant lodged the police reports after checking the Facebook page of the minister who had allegedly posted news and pictures of his activities.

In the reports, the complainant claimed Zulkifli had defied the MCO by ignoring social distancing rules while engaging in those activities.
