KUALA LUMPUR, 23 March 2009: Police will apply to the court to issue a warrant of arrest against Bukit Lanjan assemblyperson Elizabeth Wong’s ex-boyfriend following his failure to give a statement over the posting of semi-nude pictures of her on the Internet.
Police had given him until 19 March to give a statement on the matter at city police headquarters here, but he failed to show up.
City deputy police chief Datuk Abdul Samah Mat said it was only proper that a warrant of arrest be issued against him following his failure to assist investigations into the case.
“We had conveyed through his father on the need for him to give a statement by last Thursday but he still did not turn up,” he told Bernama here today.
Meanwhile, on the police report lodged yesterday by Umno Youth deputy chief Khairy Jamaluddin against the writer of a book which defamed him, Abdul Samah said police would be calling him for questioning soon. — Bernama
