This afternoon we have been notified by the DSP Jude Pereira that our client has been summoned to IPK KL tomorrow at 2:00 PM.

This announcement contravenes the agreement we had already made to present our client for his statement on Thursday at 2:00 PM at IPK KL.

Federal CID chief Mohd Bakri Zinin has stated that failure to comply with this sudden change may precipitate the arrest of our client.

We are troubled by the threatening language coming from the CID and by the unannounced change.  No reason has been given for this change and we are concerned that internal confusion within the law enforcement agencies may precipitate in harm coming to our client.

Notwithstanding these latest developments our client has agreed to fully cooperate with the CID police and appear at 2:00 PM on Wednesday to give a statement.  At 10:30 AM on Wednesday he will also give a statement to the Anti Corruption Agency pertaining to the police report that has been filed regarding suppression of material facts in our clients case in 1998.

We reiterate that until our client has yet to be provided with the police report that has been filed against him despite multiple requests that have been made to obtain it.
