MARAN: Police are investigating Sepanggar MP Datuk Mohd Azis Jamman over a speech he made while debating Budget 2022 in Parliament earlier this month.
Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Mazlan Lazim (pic), confirmed this and said it was a normal investigation as there was a police report made.
“We received the report, so we are conducting an investigation. After that we will consult the AGC (Attorney General’s Chambers). This is just an investigation and no action will be taken yet,” he said on Thursday (Nov 25).
Earlier, he made a working visit to the Maran district police headquarters here with Pahang police chief Datuk Ramli Mohamed Yoosuf, his deputy Datuk Mohd Yusri Hassan Basri and Maran district police chief DSP Norzamri Abd Rahmanb.
Mohd Azis, at a press conference in Parliament on Tuesday, said he was asked to give a statement for about an hour after raising the issue of the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) and the distribution of government allocations to Sabah during the 2022 Budget debate two weeks ago.
Meanwhile, Mazlan said police had submitted a proposal to the Home Ministry to rent houses from the private sector to overcome the shortage of quarters for police officers and members.
He said for a start, police had applied for over 200 units of houses to rent.
“We will be renting in the Klang Valley first, especially Kuala Lumpur, before looking at other cities such as Penang, Selangor and Johor.
“If we want to build new quarters, it takes time, so this is one of our efforts to look after the welfare of police officers and members as some of them work in Kuala Lumpur but stay in Bangi, Shah Alam and Kajang,” he said. – Bernama
