“The results of the police investigation, the investigations papers have been referred to the Deputy Public Prosecutor of Selangor and the order is to prosecute Patrick Khoo Kian Wui (the elderly man involved) on March 29 (Wednesday) in accordance with Section 186 of the Penal Code for preventing members of MBPJ from carrying out their duty of catching stray dogs reported by the public,” they said.
