Police will record statements from witnesses to facilitate investigation into the case involving Federal Territories Minister Annuar Musa, who was alleged to have violated the movement-control order (MCO) standard operating procedure (SOP) at an event in Kuala Lumpur recently.
Kuala Lumpur Police chief Saiful Azly Kamaruddin said the witnesses to be called include those in Annuar’s entourage, and the locals who also attended the event.
He said they would be called soon, as the police had finished recording Annuar’s statement yesterday. The case is being investigated under the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988 (Act 342).
“Once the investigation paper is complete, the police will refer the case to the Attorney-General for further action,” he told reporters after attending an event with police retirees and former policemen at the Kuala Lumpur Police Contingent headquarters.
Saiful said Annuar, however, has yet to be issued with a summons.
It was reported last Sunday that police had initiated an investigation into the allegation that Annuar had violated the MCO SOP after pictures of him and six other individuals sitting together at two tables when attending an urban agriculture programme at a PPR flat in Desa Petaling went viral on social media.
