KUALA LUMPUR - Bukit Aman has already recorded the statement of Tourism and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz over his comment to the Johor Crown Prince, said Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar.

The Inspector-General of Police said Nazri had his statement recorded last week following his verbal spat with Johor's Tunku Ismail Ibni Sultan Ibrahim.

"We will hand over investigation papers to the Attorney-General's Chambers soon.

"We hope members of the public will let police investigate the matter and not speculate further," he told a press conference in Bukit Aman on Tuesday.

Tunku Ismail had made a remark when Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak did not show up at a dialogue on national issues on June 5.

On June 13, Nazri told Tunku Ismail to stay out of politics unless he wanted to be subject to the same rule as other politicians and risk being "whacked".

"He should keep out of politics because otherwise, he will be subjected to the same rule and we will whack him."

"If you want to be a politician, then say so. Then, we can hit you back for what you say.

"But if you hold an important post - as a royal in a state - and start saying things, if we hit you back, don't get angry," he was reported as saying.
