Kuala Lumpur, Jan 28 — The police have confirmed that former Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr. Wan Azizah Wan Ismail is expected to be present at Bukit Aman at 3 pm today to have her statement recorded after being summoned to do so.
Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department director Datuk Seri Abd Jalil Hassan said Wan Azizah was called to assist investigations into the publication of the book: My Story: Justice in the Wilderness written by former Attorney-General Tan Sri Tommy Thomas.
“Yes, it is true (Wan Azizah has been summoned to Bukit Aman) and this is a normal procedure of an investigation,” he told Bernama.
Earlier, the media reported that a special task force investigating allegations made by Thomas in his book, held its first meeting in the federal capital, on Dec 23.
The special team was set up to conduct a preliminary study of several allegations in the book, including the appointment of judges, excessive interference by the executive in the judiciary, and selective prosecution.
Thomas published the book early last year but it received a lot of criticism from various quarters, including the Attorney-General’s Chambers, lawyers, politicians, and the public for allegedly containing elements of incitement, insult, and slander.
