PETALING JAYA: Kedah menteri besar Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor is expected to give his statement to the police this evening over allegations that he went for a test drive on Saturday, in violation of the movement control order.
Central Seberang Perai police chief Shafee Abd Samad said five individuals have already given their statements on the matter.
“Investigation papers will be quickly referred to the deputy public prosecutor once all statements are recorded and investigations are completed,” he was quoted as saying by Astro Awani.
Yesterday, Shafee said a probe was being conducted under Section 269 of the Penal Code and Rule 17(1) of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988, or Act 342.
Social media has been abuzz this weekend after a woman took photos of Sanusi and his two aides at a Ford dealership in Juru Auto City, as the Kedah menteri besar apparently went on a test drive.
An aide to Sanusi has since denied that such a test drive took place and said the entourage had merely stopped to take a look at a car Sanusi chanced upon while stopping to buy takeaway food on his way to Kuala Lumpur.
Other social media users have since chimed in, saying there was no eatery close enough to the Ford dealership which would lead to a “chance” encounter.
The woman who posted the photos, Nini Siron, 36, has since reported that she had come under attack from supporters of the menteri besar, ranging from religious teachers to those with political links.
