Bukit Gelugor member of parliament Ramkarpal Singh has criticised the nation’s top cop on the investigation towards DAP veteran Tony Pua.
He said the Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Razarudin Husain should refrain from making comments inferring guilt on Pua despite ongoing investigations.
“In his statement yesterday, the IGP urged the public not to speculate on Pua’s case as the matter is still under investigation but, at the same time, concluded that Pua’s remarks were seditious.
“If the IGP has already concluded yesterday that Pua’s statement is seditious, why is there a need to ask him to go to Bukit Aman today to assist in investigations?
“It seems that the IGP has already found Pua guilty without affording him the right to a proper and fair investigation.
“Remarks like these from the nation’s top cop do not inspire confidence in the impartiality of the investigation process and the IGP should do his job professionally and not be seen to influence the investigation process,” he said in a statement.
Pua recently took to Facebook to criticise the Pardons Board’s decision on Datuk Seri Najib Razak. The board was chaired by former Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah.
Pua posted a series of cryptic messages on his Facebook account, including one that read, “I beg your pardon?” – NST
