KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Aman will call up DAP Perak chairman Nga Kor Ming tomorrow to record his statement in connection with a posting on the "Nga Kor Ming Super Fans" Facebook page which allegedly insulted the Sultan of Selangor Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah.
Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Mazlan Mansor said the statement is needed to assist police investigation.
"The investigation is still ongoing. We will hand over the investigation papers to the deputy public prosecutor once it is completed,” he told reporters after launching the National Forensic Science Symposium for Law Enforcement at the Royal Malaysia Police College here today.
Last Wednesday, Mazlan confirmed that police had received a report lodged at the Section 6 Police Station in Shah Alam by an aide of the Selangor Ruler.
Former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had recently urged the government to act against Nga, who is also the Dewan Rakyat deputy speaker, for allegedly inciting the Chinese to hate the Sultan.
The posting in question featured an image of the Selangor Ruler next to a bilingual road sign in Chinese and Bahasa Malaysia.
It alleged that the Ruler had called for bilingual road signs in Shah Alam be removed and prompted the Chinese who were displeased to state a protest.
Nga has since denied any links with the Facebook page and urged Najib to apologise for his accusation.
The case is being investigated under Section 4(1) of the Sedition Act 1948.
