KUALA LUMPUR: Police will submit their investigation papers on a social media post deemed seditious by former deputy women, family and community development minister Hannah Yeoh to the public prosecutor.
Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department (CID) director Huzir Mohamed said police had recorded a statement from the Segambut MP, who was summoned to the federal police headquarters on June 23 over a social media post related to child marriage.
The public prosecutor would make a decision on the matter, he told reporters at Bukit Aman today.
Huzir also said police would complete their investigation into the death of fireman Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim as requested by the deputy public prosecutor soon.
He said police would hold discussions with representatives from the Attorney-General’s Chambers for further action.
Adib was part of a nine-man firefighting team from the Subang Jaya Fire and Rescue Department that responded to a fire during a riot at the Sri Maha Mariamman Temple in USJ 25, Subang Jaya, to protest against its relocation on Nov 27, 2018.
He sustained severe injuries and was hospitalised for three weeks before he died at the National Heart Institute (IJN) on Dec 17 that year.
On Sept 27, 2019, the Coroner’s Court ruled that Adib’s death was due to murder by two or more persons.
