Meanwhile, Lawyers for Liberty (LFL) executive director Latheefa Koya said that the police must arrest the former minister as the 15-year-old student’s decision to retract her police report was a matter of grave “concern and alarm” and was also “highly suspicious and strange”. Investigators from Bukit Aman will meet a former minister tomorrow after a teenager lodged and then withdrew a police report against him for sexual assault. A police source told Malay Mail that the former minister has been contacted, during which he told police he would cooperate with investigations. “The investigating team will record his statement tomorrow afternoon. “Investigators will also interview the victim aged 15 to find out why she withdrew the police report,” the source said when contacted. The girl retracted her police report a day after lodging it in Perlis on Oct 20. Perlis police chief SAC Noor Mushar Mohd confirmed that investigators from Bukit Aman’s sexual, women and child investigation department (D11) were handling the case. “D11 officers will interview the former minister on the police report lodged by the victim,” he said. Noor Mushar also denied that police were trying to protect the former minister and said Perlis police had filed the case under Section 14(a) of the Sexual Offences Against Children Act 2017 after receiving the report from the victim.
