Muhyiddin: Adib's full forensic report to be released in the next few days

The full forensic investigation report into the death of firefighter Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim will be released by the police in a few days’ time, according to Home Minister Muhyiddin Yassin.

He said he had been briefed by the Inspector-General of Police Mohamad Fuzi Harun on the development of the report.

“For now, I leave it to the doctors and police to complete the report. The police will release the report in the next few days,” he told reporters after presenting school aid to 550 students in his Pagoh constituency at the Pagoh Sports Complex today.

He said the ministry would also consider making the report public should the need arise.

Adib, 24, who was serving as a member of the Emergency Medical Rescue Services of the Subang Jaya Fire and Rescue Station died at the National Heart Institute in Kuala Lumpur at 9.41 pm on Dec 17 after he was believed to be assaulted during riots at the Sri Maha Mariamman Temple in Subang Jaya, Selangor, on Nov 27.

In an unrelated development, Muhyiddin said he said all Pakatan Harapan component parties must work together to ensure that the objective of a New Malaysia is attained.

He said this in response to DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang’s statement yesterday that DAP leaders would not hesitate to quit the Harapan government if the New Malaysia objective is abandoned.

“What’s important now is not to be suspicious of each other, but to work closely together to ensure that the New Malaysia objective can be attained. This cannot be done in just one year. It will probably involve various transformation, reforms, change of attitude, economic development and improvement of racial ties,” he added.
