Police to record Mr H’s statement — IGP

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 21 — The police will record the statement of an individual known as ‘Mr H’ over his alleged link to a viral video of a conversation between an individual resembling former Community Communications Department (J-Kom) director-general Datuk Mohammad Agus Yusoff with a J-Kom employee.

Without revealing Mr H’s identity, Police Inspector-General Tan Sri Razarudin Husain said the individual would be called after receiving information from Agus when his statement was taken yesterday.

“Several more individuals will be called soon,” he said when contacted today.

Agus showed up at the Kajang district police headquarters yesterday to record his statement for the second time regarding a case of a video clip of a conversation between a man who resembles him and a J-Kom employee.

While recording his statement, Agus reportedly said he had revealed the identity of the individual, nicknamed ‘Mr H’, who was linked to the case, to the police and also lodged a report against the owner of the TikTok account ‘Raja Petra’, after an uploaded video revealing his personal details went viral.

Razarudin also urged J-Kom officer Abdul Wahab Abdul Kadir Jilani to come forward to assist with the investigation into the case.

“Thus far, no police report related to security threats has been made by Abdul Wahab, and we ask him to come forward immediately to help investigate the case,” he said.

The police are also investigating the leak of a copy of Agus’ police report, which went viral on social media.

Razarudin said the investigation was conducted under Section 203A of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.

Recently, a three-minute-long video clip showing an online conversation between a man allegedly resembling Mohammad Agus and another individual went viral on social media.

During a press conference on Friday (November 17), Agus claimed the video was doctored and had lodged a police report on the matter.
