Nab Najib and Dr M now, Zahid told

Lim Kit Siang reminds the Home Minister of his promise of swift police action in sedition cases.
zahid300PETALING JAYA: DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang has challenged Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to honour his promise of swift police action in sedition cases by ordering investigations on reports against Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak and former prime minister Mahathir Mohamed.
Referring to Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng’s police report, he noted that 120 hours had passed and investigations had not commenced whereas Zahid had promised that any sedition report would be probed within 24 hours.
Lip Eng’s report mentioned Najib’s remarks at the 2010 Umno General Assembly about spilling blood in defending Putrajaya and Mahathir’s allegedly racist remarks about Kit Siang during the campaign for the 13th general election.
In his press statement today, the DAP adviser also noted that Mahathir recently gave police a “blank cheque” to arrest him if he had broken any law.
“The question is not whether the police dare to arrest him if he had broken the law, but whether the police would even dare to commence investigations and to require the former prime minister to give a statement as part of police investigations,” he said.
“This applies to the Prime Minister as well.
“Can Zahid or the Inspector-General of Police, Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar, enlighten the public as to whether the police have approached Mahathir or Najib to take a statement from them as a result of Lip Eng’s police report on sedition, and if so, when?”
Commenting on reports that police would question constitutional law expert Abdul Aziz Bari for allegedly insulting the Sultan of Selangor, Lim said: “The sedition rampage continues, as hardly a day passes in the past month without someone being investigated or charged for sedition, as if Malaysians have suddenly become the most seditious and anti-national people in the world.”
