Police to record former deputy prime minister's son statement over blog posting next week, says IGP

KUALA LUMPUR: Police confirmed today that they have summoned the son of former deputy prime minister Tun Abdul Ghafar Baba to record his statement regarding a blog post in which he made predictions about the country's leadership and the state of Malay politics.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Razarudin Husain confirmed to Berita Harian that police will record the statement from Datuk Tamrin Ghafar next Tuesday.

"Yes, we (the police) have fixed April 16 (to call and have Tamrin's statement recorded)," Razarudin said.

Tamrin told the New Straits Times yesterday that he has been summoned by the police over a blog post he posted, on his predictions on the country's leadership and the state of Malay politics in the next 10 years.

He said he received a telephone call on Monday afternoon regarding a police investigation involving the April 4 post.

"I received a call from the police saying a report was lodged against my latest blog post titled '10 tahun lagi, DAP akan jadi Tuan'," he said.

He said an officer rang him up on Wednesday and introduced himself as an officer from Bukit Aman's Classified Crimes Investigations Unit seeking his cooperation over an investigation related to the blog.
