“I will rape you” case
Exco member slams police
PETALING JAYA: Police have identified a man in connection with a rape threat made against Selangor State exco member Rodziah Ismail.
However, she slammed Selangor police chief DCP Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar for moving too slowly in the investigation.
The rape threat was made against Rodziah when she was involved in helping to relocate a Hindu temple in Shah Alam a few months ago.
“I met Datuk Khalid a few weeks ago and I asked him about the status of my complaint. I have provided the police with evidence. I hope they can speed up the investigation and the man will be taken to court soon,” she told The Malay Mail yesterday.
However, Khalid said the Selangor police have never treated the Opposition parties unfairly.
“Every investigation has its own merit, sometimes it can be a long one. Every detail is important. I hope the Opposition leaders will not make unfair comments about the police. Let us all be patient.”
Khalid confirmed that the police have already identified the man, in his 30s, behind the sexual threat against Rodziah but are waiting for the okay from the Deputy Public Prosecutor before taking action against the man.
Meanwhile, another Selangor State government exco member, Teresa Kok, said she was glad that a 35-year-old man, who allegedly posted a death threat against her in her blog, had been arrested on Dec 16.
“As long as the case is solved, I am more than happy to hear it,” she said, adding that the Selangor police chief had informed her of the arrest on Tuesday night.
“It shows that the police have taken my report seriously.”
The suspect was released on bail after his statement was recorded.
