KUALA LUMPUR: Former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak will be called to Bukit Aman this week to assist police investigation on his alleged defamatory statement against Teluk Intan Member of Parliament Nga Kor Ming.

Bukit Aman Criminal Investigations Department director Datuk Huzir Mohamed said the matter had been conveyed to Najib.

The police would also call up Nga to record his statement, he told a media conference today.

On Sept 29, a statement insulting the Sultan of Selangor was posted on Facebook via an account identified as ‘Nga Kor Ming Super Fans Page’, allegedly asking the Chinese to protest against the Sultan over the removal of bilingual road signs in the state.

Nga, however, denied that he and DAP were involved in making the posting and claimed it was a fake Facebook account. -- Bernama
