Zahid: Police searching for source of poison pen letter
KAJANG: Police are hunting down the source of the poison pen letter calling on Prime Minister Najib Razak to step down, says Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
Zahid, who is also Home Minister, said the person or persons responsible for spreading the letter on social media had committed three offences, namely falsifying his signature, using an official government letterhead and resorting to defamation.
He said police had received no less than 20 complaints relating to the poison pen letter and had been informed that the police and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission were carrying out thorough investigations to track down the person or persons responsible.
“I am certain that whoever did this will face the full brunt of the law,” he told reporters after opening the Indian Progressive Front’s 24th general assembly here today.
