JMM submits documents over TMI funding
KUALA LUMPUR: Pertubuhan Jaringan Melayu Malaysia (JMM) has submitted 40 additional documents to facilitate police investigations into the finances of news portal The Malaysian Insight.
The pressure group’s president, Datuk Azwanddin Hamzah, said police took almost two hours to record his statement yesterday.
He said the case was being handled by the Classified Criminal Investigation Unit of Bukit Aman as it involved high-profile individuals.
“They have assured me that the investigations would be completed soon,” he said after handing over documents to the police concerning the transfer of about RM3 million into the news portal’s account.
JMM had, on Feb 4, lodged a report alleging that the news portal had received foreign funding to topple the government.
Kuala Lumpur Criminal Investigation Department chief Senior Assistant Commissioner Rusdi Mohd Isa said police were investigating the report lodged by Attorney-General Mohamed Apandi Ali’s wife, Puan Sri Faridah Begum Abdul Kader, over blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin’s article which was uploaded on Malaysia Today.
Raja Petra had, in a series of articles, accused Apandi of being influenced by outsiders in his decision-making process.
