Zahid's daughter to give statement over alleged MCO breach

KUALA LUMPUR (April 24): The police are expected to record a statement from Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi's daughter Nurulhidayah at Bukit Aman today over an alleged violation of the movement control order (MCO), Malaysiakini reported today.

Malaysiakini has learned that the D5 Classified Criminal Investigation Unit will record statements by Nurulhidayah and her husband at around 11am.

Malaysiakini has contacted inspector-general of police (IGP) Abdul Hamid Bador on the matter.

Meanwhile, when contacted, Nurulhidayah confirmed her appointment with the police but declined to comment further.

Recently, Nurulhidayah shared a picture taken in Putrajaya after a meeting with Deputy Environment and Water Minister Ahmad Masrizal Muhammad.

The picture was uploaded to her Instagram.

The picture showed Nurulhidayah together with her husband and Masrizal. They were standing apart in the photo.

Subsequently, she had also met the Islamic Affairs Minister Zulkifli Mohamad at his office.

Being criticised for purportedly flouting the MCO, in the comment section of the picture, Nurulhidayah had challenged those the critics to file a police report instead of leaving a comment on social media.

Guidelines imposed during the second and third phase of MCO include that only one person be in a car and travels should be limited to within a 10km radius, unless there is special permission from police or authorisation to work.

According to The New Straits Times yesterday, a private university student was jailed 7 days and fined RM800 for defying the movement control order (MCO) by travelling 800m to present a cake which she had baked to her boyfriend.

Several elected representatives and Deputy Health Minister Dr Noor Azmi Ghazali have come under scrutiny over the last few days over their alleged failures to comply with MCO guidelines.

Noor Azmi has apologised for his mistake.

Responding to concerns of alleged double standards in police enforcement of the MCO, Defence Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob said on Saturday that no individual is above the law and all related police reports would be investigated.
