The Member of Parliament for Jelutong RSN Rayer today lodged a police report against former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak regarding the dismissal of former attorney-general Abdul Gani Patail and deputy prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin in July 2015.
Rayer claimed that besides dismissing them, Najib also carried out a major reshuffle involving several government agencies such as the police, MACC, Bank Negara and the National Audit Department.
“I have read an article by the Member of Parliament for Iskandar Puteri, Lim Kit Siang, who urged the police to carry out an investigation on the move by Najib to dismiss and revamp government officers in July 2015.
"Following the call made by him (Lim), I felt that I need to lodge a police report on the matter because if there was no report, the authorities (police) could not initiate investigation, so I hope with this report, an investigation could immediately be carried out,” he told reporters after lodging the report at the north-east district police headquarters in George Town today.
When contacted by Bernama, north-east district police chief, ACP Che Zamani Che Awang, confirmed receiving the report.
