The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has responded to Syed Saddiq’s claims on the department ordering the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) to confiscate his mobile phone.
As reported by Bernama, the MCMC is only there to act as a technical agency to assist PDRM in their investigation and they had never gave such orders to seize any item from Syed Saddiq as required by the police to complete their investigation.
The statement also said “On the other hand, MCMC will continue to provide assistance and technical recommedations for the investigation without any hidden agenda including political agenda.”
Yesterday (22 May), Syed Saddiq questioned PDRM for confiscating his mobile phone when he was at the Dang Wangi district police headquarters to give a statement. In addition, he also claimed that a special unit had been created in the commission for political purposes, political intrusion and campaign sabotage previously.
MCMC refuted these allegations and stress that it is only playing its role of regulating the industry based on the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission Act 1998.
