Police to record Malaysian MP's statement over allegedly seditious tweet

KUALA LUMPUR - The federal police will be recording Taiping MP Nga Kor Ming's statement over his tweet concerning the Federal Court's conviction of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim for sodomising former aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan.

Nga arrived at the Bukit Aman police headquarters here at about 11.20am Monday with a convoy of vehicles.

He was accompanied by lawyer and Beruas MP Datuk Ngeh Koo Ham.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said Nga, who is also the Perak DAP chairman, will be investigated under the Sedition Act over his tweet on Feb 10, allegedly calling on the people to stand up against the "oppressive regime".

In a tweet @KBAB51, Khalid said Nga's tweet was inviting action to be taken by the police.

"This person below is courting action by the police. We will investigate him under the Sedition Act", Khalid said, attaching a screen-grab of Nga's tweet.

PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli is expected to arrive at Bukit Aman at 1pm to have his statement recorded.
