MARAN: Police have summoned Parti Warisan Sabah lawmaker Datuk Mohd Azis Jamman to have his statement recorded in Bukit Aman after the department received a report allegedly over a speech he made in Parliament recently.
Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Mazlan Lazim described it as nothing unusual, saying it was part of the investigation procedure.
"When there is a police report and we feel there is a need to conduct further investigations, then we will look into the matter. It is still in the investigation stage and no action has been taken.
"I do not want to comment much on the matter," he said, adding that the matter would be referred to the Attorney General's Chambers if necessary once investigation was complete.
Mazlan was speaking to reporters after a working visit to the Maran police headquarters here today.
Also present were Pahang police chief Datuk Ramli Mohamed Yoosuf, his deputy Datuk Mohd Yusri Hassan Basri and Maran police chief Deputy Superintendent Norzamri Abd Rahman.
Azis, who is Sepanggar member of parliament, yesterday told a press conference at the Parliament building that he provided his statement to the police over his speech on the Malaysia Agreement 1963 and the distribution of government allocations to Sabah during the 2022 Budget debate session two weeks ago.
Several opposition MPs yesterday asked Dewan Rakyat Speaker Tan Sri Azhar Azizan Harun to intervene in the issue
