The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) will call on Minister of Youth and Sports, Hannah Yeoh, to record evidence to assist in the investigation into the organisation of the ‘Jom Ziarah Gereja’ or ‘Jom Visit Churches’ program by a non-governmental organisation (NGO) under the auspices of the Ministry of Youth and Sports (KBS).
According to a report by Sinar Harian, Sentul District Police Chief, Assistant Commissioner Beh Eng Lai said that he will call Hannah Yeoh in the near future.
“We will record the testimony of Chegubard (Badrul Hisham Shaharin) today to help with the investigation,” he said, adding that his party has received 2 police reports in regards to this issue.
“We have recorded the testimony of 3 individuals consisting of the complainant and 2 NGO representatives to assist the investigation,” Beh further explained.
On Monday, it was reported that PDRM had opened an investigation into the organisation of the ‘Jom Ziarah Gereja’ program.
Kuala Lumpur Police Chief Datuk Azmi Abu Kassim shared that, although the program was cancelled on Sunday, the police had received a report in regards to it.
Prior to this, Chegubard had also accused Hannah Yeoh of apparently turning a KBS agency into ‘Christian Evangelists’.
“The Christian Evangelists has started their work?” he wrote in a Facebook post.
Hannah Yeoh then responded with a police report against him for slander
“My political secretary has made a police report against Chegubard, who has slandered me and spread this slander on social media and WhatsApp – giving the impression that the KBS agency has now become Christian Evangelists after I became the Minister of Youth and Sports in the Government of Madani Malaysia,” she wrote.
Prior to this, on March 14 (Tuesday), Hannah Yeoh also clarified in Dewan Rakyat that the ‘Jom Ziarah Gereja’ program does not involve Muslim individuals.
