Malacca fracas: Anwar's bodyguard released

The Melaka police have released a bodyguard of opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim after recording his statement for allegedly drawing a pistol and pointing it at the public at a function organised by PKR at Kampung Baru Rim  in Jasin, Malacca.

Melaka Crime Investigation Department head, ACP Raja Shahrom Raja Abdullah, said the 37-year-old was released at 9pm yesterday at the Jasin police headquarters.

He said the man was detained following five police reports lodged over the incident which happened between 3.30pm and 4pm yesterday.

The man was investigated under Section 506 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation and was released on police bail after police recorded his statement, he told a media conference at the Melaka police contingent headquarters here today.
Licence to carry firearm
Raja Shahrom said preliminary police investigations found that the man had a licence to carry the firearm and based on his statement, he was just doing his job as a personal bodyguard.
However, police would conduct further investigation and would look at the video-recording and pictures taken by members of the public at the scene, he added.

During the 3.15pm incident yesterday, the bodyguard, who was travelling in a Toyota Camry, got out of the car and drew out his pistol and pointed it at a group of men who were trying to prevent a bus, which Anwar was in, from going to the PKR function.

The action of the bodyguard was witnessed by those at the scene who proceeded to disarm him.

Raja Shahrom said police would also investigate into an allegation that the bus was splashed with red paint at the scene.

I would like to book the bus ticket online.

It can check the price and bus schedule
for Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand.

I normally will buy the bus ticket online from Thailand to Negeri Sembilan, Thailand to Malacca, Thailand to Perak, Thailand to Penang (PG) , Thailand to Kuala Lumpur (KL) , and Thailand to Singapore (Sg) .
