KUALA LUMPUR, March 27 2016 : Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar wants the Police Cyber Investigation Response Centre (PCIRC) to investigate Selangor DAP chairman Tony Pua over his posting on his Twitter account yesterday, on the court’s decision on teenager Aminulrasyid Amzah’s case.

Khalid said the Petaling Jaya Utara member of Parliament had deliberately twisted facts to create public confusion.

“PCIRC@PDRMsia. This tweet has deliberately twisted facts aimed at confusing the people. Call this person and investigate,” he said in his latest posting on Twitter.

Pua had on his Twitter account, written, “This thug said 14-year-old Aminulrasyid was shot by police because there were dangerous weapons in his car”, linking it to a news article titled, “IGP refuses to apologise to Aminulrasyid’s family”.

Last Thursday, the family of Aminulrasyid, who died in the police shooting six years ago, received damages amounting to RM414,800 after the High Court allowed their claim for damages against the police and government.

In their suit, Aminulrasyid’s mother, Norsiah Mohammad, 67, and his eldest sister, Nor Azura, 46, as the plaintiffs, named Corporal Jenain Subi, the Shah Alam district police chief, Tan Sri Khalid as the former Selangor police chief, IGP and the Malaysian government as the defendants. – Bernama
