A woman who was allegedly raped by two friends of Gombak Setia assemblyman Hilman Idham last December has been called by police to give a statement on Wednesday.
The matter was confirmed by the victim’s lawyer, Asheeq Ali Sethi Alivi.
The police action comes hours after Najib Razak had taken a jibe at the cops over the slow progress in the case, saying police were quick to issue a statement after it was reported that he forgot to scan the MySejahtera code when entering a chicken rice shop.
“But I’m puzzled why the police have yet to issue any statement on the case of a woman making a police report alleging that the Perikatan Nasional (PN) assemblyman had planned her rape.
“Are rape cases not as important as cases of forgetting to scan MySejahtera?” the former prime minister asked in a Facebook post.
On May 9, Kuala Lumpur police chief Azmi Abu Kassim said the case was being investigated under Section 376 of the Penal Code for rape.
One of the persons implicated in the police report is a division leader of a component party of Perikatan Nasional, while the other is said to be an acquaintance of Hilman.
The police report was revealed by former Umno Supreme Council member Lokman Adam. – FMT
