Azmin quizzed over PKNS document leak, say cops


Selangor police chief Hussein Omar Khan said Hulu Kelang assemblyman Azmin Ali was one of 16 people who had their statements taken.
PETALING JAYA: Selangor Perikatan Nasional chief Azmin Ali was questioned by police over an alleged leak of confidential documents linked to a statutory body in the state.

Selangor police chief Hussein Omar Khan said, contrary to claims, Azmin was not grilled over what the latter had raised in a state assembly sitting in February.

“The public should not speculate on the matter until the probe is complete,” he said in a statement.

Hussein also revealed that the former Selangor menteri besar was among 16 people who had their statements taken.

Azmin had earlier claimed that he had been summoned by police over his allegation in the state assembly that the Selangor State Development Corporation (PKNS) had engaged in misconduct.

The Hulu Kelang assemblyman claimed that the notice was unconstitutional and intended to intimidate him.

In March, Azmin had urged the Selangor government to explain PKNS’s decision to sell its development rights on PJ Sentral, which was expected to yield a return of RM1.04 billion, to Malaysian Resources Corporation Berhad (MRCB) for RM270 million.

A month later, he alleged that Selangor menteri besar Amirudin Shari had ordered that a police report be made against him following his exposure of alleged misconduct within PKNS.

He claimed the police report was aimed at silencing him.

Earlier today, PN chief whip Takiyuddin Hassan said the decision to summon Azmin highlighted Putrajaya’s cowardice, and called it a desperate attempt to cover up the government’s shortcomings. - FMT
