KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 8 2015 : The video recording of Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s speech made at a gathering, ‘Bersama Timbalan Presiden UMNO’ at Kelab Sultan Sulaiman, Kampung Baru yesterday, would be scrutinised by a special Umno committee.Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said the committee would investigate whether a violation of the party’s constitution had been committed.

He said the outcome of the investigation would be referred to Umno’s Disciplinary Board and Supreme Council.

“I heard that he made a speech yesterday. I also identified those who had attended.

“I have given the video recording to the special committee to scrutinise and then we will bring it to the attention of the party’s disciplinary board and supreme council for a decision,” he told Bernama, today.

He said Muhyiddin should have used the appropriate platform to express his sentiments on issues relating to the party’s internal affairs, instead of drawing public attention to them.

“He had agreed to accept any decision made by the supreme council, so that’s what he should do,” said Tengku Adnan.

Muhyiddin made the speech following a decision by Umno that the deputy prime minister would not launch the party’s delegates’ meeting for its three wings, Wanita, Pemuda and Puteri during the Umno General Assembly 2015 tomorrow.

Also present at the gathering were former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal as well as veteran party member Tan Sri Aziz Yassin. – Bernama
