GEORGE TOWN: Penang police have opened investigation papers on Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Datuk Seri Ahmad Said Hamdan, state police chief Datuk Ayub Yaakob said Monday.
He said the probe was being conducted under Section 500 of the Penal Code for defamation following a report lodged against Ahmad Said.
“We have not called him yet, may be soon,” he told Bernama when asked whether the police would summon Ahmad Said to have his statement recorded.
On Feb 23, PKR youth chief Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin lodged a report at the Dang Wangi police station claiming Ahmad Said had made a malicious remark in Penang against Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim. -- Bernama
