KUCHING, Mar 2: Sarawak police will investigate two named Sarawakian MPs as well as several more who have been alleged to make U-turn even after the signing of statutory declarations (SDs).

Sarawak Police Commissioner Datuk Aidi Ismail confirmed that three police reports were lodged at Gita Police Station yesterday evening between 6.30pm and 8pm against the two MPs and several others.

“In the report, these complainants claimed that there were elements of inconsistency in the  process of signing of SDs,” Aidi told DayakDaily.

Aidi said police are now investigating the reports to see whether there was any truth in the police reports.

“We have also referred the matter to our headquarters in Bukit Aman. Police will also consult the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC),” he added.

During the week long political turmoil in Kuala Lumpur, rivalry camps were collecting SDs as evidence of their supports to be presented to the King who under the constitution has the right to make decision on nation’s top leadership.

MPs were reported to have kept changing camps so the political situation then was fluid and versatile.

Meanwhile, since the appointment of Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin as Malaysia’s eight prime minister, Aidi said there were no rallies or boycott reported in Sarawak.

“Should there be any, police are prepared to deal with any eventuality.

“I would like to remind and warn the public, especially social media users, not to express their views which are deemed seditious that can cause harm or dissatisfaction to the public,” he said.

Earlier today, Aidi visited Sarawak General Operations (PGA) headquarters in Batu Kawa, accompanied by Sarawak PGA Brigade Commander Datuk Khaw Kok Chin.
