PETALING JAYA: ept 16, 2008 By NURBAITI HAMDAN and CHEOK LI PENG
Kampung Tunku assemblyman Lau Weng San has lodged a police report against former Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo for allegedly making a false statement on his blog (www.drkhir.blogspot.com).
The contents of the blog posting was subsequently published in a Malay daily on Sept 9.
Lau said Dr Khir’s statement and the report from the daily accused Seputeh MP Teresa Kok for being responsible in spearheading a campaign to ban the broadcast of the azan (Muslim call to prayer) on loudspeakers.
He lodged the police report at the police headquarters here about 11am Tuesday.
Lau said that the mosques had denied Kok’s involvement in the allegation.
“This whole misunderstanding was even explained by a blogger (pembelamelayu.blogspot.com) and yet Dr Khir paid no attention to it and continued to slander Kok,” he said.
Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Arjunaidi Mohamed confirmed that a report was lodged by Lau.
This is the second police report lodged against Khir Toyo.
On Sept 11, Kota Raja MP Dr Siti Mariah Mahmood lodged a police report against Khir Toyo on the same matter.
