Police to call up Al Jazeera, journalist over documentary - IGP



The police are to call up for questioning the Al Jazeera news channel and one of its journalists over a documentary that the Malaysian government has slammed for portraying what it claims to be an inaccurate picture of the treatment of illegal immigrants during the fight against Covid-19.

Inspector-General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador said today the police have received several reports against the documentary and they have opened an investigation to determine whether there were elements of sedition or misconduct.
