Syed Saddiq facing probe after ‘criminals’ remark?

Johor police said today a report has been lodged against a politician for remarks about flood relief work by volunteers in Segamat.

It did not name the politician but the police statement comes a day after Muda president Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman had appealed for party volunteers in flood relief work not to be treated as criminals.

Syed Saddiq, who is MP for Muar, had posted a video yesterday in which he appealed for flexibility in applying Covid-19 rules in flood relief work. “Don’t treat volunteers like criminals to the point they need to be called in for questioning,” he said after six party volunteers were asked to make statements for breach of Covid-19 rules.

Acting Johor police chief Khaw Kok Chin, in the statement this evening, said Johor police do not view volunteers from NGOs and political parties helping in the floods as breaking the law.

“However, if a report is lodged, the police would carry out investigations fairly, according to the provisions of the law, to determine if there was a breach of Covid-19 SOPs,” it said.

He said the case was being investigated under the Penal Code for disobeying a civil servant’s orders which carries a maximum six-month jail term and a fine of up to RM2,000 or both.

Khaw also advised the public against misusing social media and other platforms, and warned that the police will act against anyone who threatens the peace and public order. FMT
