United Nations special rapporteur Maina Kiai's recent comment on a slew of Malaysia issues constitutes "interfering" with Malaysian affairs and justifies the investigations into foreign funding for NGOs, Deputy Home Minister Nuz Jazlan Mohamed said.

"This guy, who is not Malaysian and works for a foreign organisation, comes here and tells the people to demonstrate and criticise government. He is interfering in Malaysia.

"His action gives reason for the police to investigate groups or NGOs that receive foreign funding to check whether there is foreign interference," Nur Jazlan told Malaysiakini yesterday.
