DAP asks Terence Naidu for written report on drug incident

Perak state assemblyman Terence Naidu has been asked to submit a written report on his arrest for allegedly testing positive for illegal substances, says Perak DAP chairman Nga Kor Ming.

Nga said the Perak leadership and the DAP national leadership can then “be informed of the factual situation accordingly”.

In a statement this evening, he said DAP was serious about the conduct, character and integrity of its elected representatives “and that they should be exemplary in their ways” for having been entrusted by the people to lead them.

He said he had contacted Terence this evening and confirmed that he was arrested and detained by the police last night at a pub in Bandar Perai Jaya, Penang.

He was released on police bail today after the magistrates’ court denied a police application to hold him in remand for four days.

Terence was re-elected assemblyman for Pasir Bedamar, near Teluk Intan, in the 2018 general election. He secured a majority of 14,520 votes over his Barisan Nasional rival.

FMT reported earlier today that a Perak assemblyman had been arrested after he allegedly tested positive for drug use following a raid at a nightclub in Perai, Penang, last night. A police source said the assemblyman was among 48 people detained at the nightclub which is part of a KTV (karaoke parlour) in Megamall Perai.

The head of the Penang anti-narcotics unit, Mustafa Kamal Gani Abdullah, said 82 people were examined at the centre, of whom 48 were detained. They were between the ages of 21 and 70.

He said police also detained 12 foreign women and investigations were going on to find out if they were workers or guests, Utusan Online reported. He said the assemblyman was being detained for a day and would be released on police bail pending a pathology report.

The case is being investigated under the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952. The offence, of using a listed dangerous drug, carries a penalty of a fine of up to RM5,000 or a jail term of up to two years, or both. FMT
