KUALA LUMPUR: Police will record the statement from Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing over the bomb threat incident at the minister's office yesterday (June 5).

The process of recording the statement will be conducted by the Putrajaya district police headquarters today (June 6).

Putrajaya district police chief, A Asmadi Abdul Aziz, said police have also recorded the statements of several other witnesses to assist in the investigation.

"The statements of the witnesses have been taken and we will record the statement of the minister this afternoon.

"As previously reported, the police also confirmed that a suspicious parcel addressed to the minister was a fake bomb threat," he said when contacted today.

A Asmadi said the fake bomb was confirmed after the police Bomb Disposal Unit carried out an inspection using two sniffer dogs.
