Hisham: Several nabbed for urinating on photos of Nik Aziz, Guan Eng
KUALA LIPIS: Police have arrested several individuals who allegedly stomped and urinated on photographs of PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat and Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, said Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein on Saturday.
"Let the police conduct the investigation. No one will escape the law, whoever that may be," he told reporters after opening the Lipis Umno Division delegates meeting, here.
After the police investigation, it would be left to the Attorney-General's Chambers whether to prosecute them or not, he said.
He also said that several people detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA) had been released before Aidilfitri last month.
"The release of the remaining detainees is under consideration. That will be after it has been determined that they are no longer a threat to the security of the country," he said.
The release of the detainees follows the proposed introduction of a new law to replace the repealed ISA. - Bernama
