Jelutong DAP Member of Parliament Jeff Ooi Chuan Aun will go to the police station tomorrow to assist in the investigations into his comment on the death of PAS spiritual leader Haron Din.

His lawyer RSN Rayer, when contacted here today, said that his client will be present at Jalan Patani police station here tomorrow afternoon.

“Ooi will give his statement and cooperate with the police on the case,” he said.

Ooi will be represented by Rayer, Gobind Singh Deo, Ramkarpal Singh Deo and Lim Lip Eng on the matter.

The DAP lawmaker had come under fire since Friday after he allegedly tweeted “Adios Harun Din. Let There Be Peace” on his twitter account and following the incident, he had set his social media account from public to private.

He then had denied posting the tweet as he said that the image circulated had been manipulated via Photoshop and stressed that he had full power over his social media accounts.

Earlier today, Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar had urged Jeff to surrender to the police if he wanted the process to go on smoothly.

The case will be investigated under section 298 of the Penal Code for uttering words with deliberate intent to hurt the religious feelings of any person.
