KUCHING, Oct 12: The police have postponed interviewing Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to a later date.

According to Chief Commissioner Datuk Huzir Mohamed, Anwar was supposed to come for police questioning in connection with police reports lodged by several MPs concerning the list of 121 MPs allegedly supporting him today (Oct 12, 2020) at 11am.

“However, his personal secretary informed us that he would only be available on Oct 13, at 9am. Thus, the police have postponed the interview concerned until a later date to be determined,” Huzir revealed in a press statement today.

Huzir took the opportunity to remind the public not to share the news concerned and advised “the interested parties” (pihak yang berkepentingan) not to publish any news that is unverified.

“The police will not hesitate to take action against any party that publishes fake or unverified news which confuses the public,” said Huzir.

Anwar, who is also the Port Dickson MP had been called for questioning concerning a list of 121 MPs who were purported to be supporting him to be the next premier.

A police investigation has been initiated following six police reports being lodged, starting with the one by Jerantut MP Datuk Ahmad Nazlan Idris on Oct 8, 2020. — DayakDaily
