Police today urged the public not to engage in speculation or provocation regarding the case of a Perak exco who is alleged to have raped his domestic helper.

Perak police chief Razarudin Husain said such actions could jeopardise the ongoing investigation.

"The police will carry out the investigation according to procedures and in a transparent, fair and trustworthy manner,” he said in a statement here today in response to certain parties asking why the politician has not been arrested.

On July 8, the 23-year-old Indonesian domestic helper lodged a police report claiming that state exco Paul Yong had raped her at his home in Meru. 

Yong has openly come out to say that he is innocent.

Razarudin said a day after the report was lodged, police arrested the politician but later released him on police bail, following his questioning being settled in less than 24 hours.

He added that the investigation papers were referred to the public prosecutor but was returned for follow-up action including getting a chemist’s report.
