Former Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin is in trouble with the law for an alleged breach of the Official Secrets Act 1972.

Police will question him for revealing Cabinet meeting details during parliamentary debate on Budget 2017.

Pribumi president has been contacted by investigators to have his statement recorded in federal police headquarters in Bukit Aman.

“The schedule has not been fixed. They gave a date but after some discussions, they said next week,” Muhyiddin told reporters when met outside Parliament on Tuesday.

The Pagoh MP declined to say, however, if he felt his remarks when debating Budget 2017 were in violation of secrecy laws.

“I will explain when I am called up. Not in Parliament,” said Muhyiddin.

Aside from Muhyiddin, former Second Finance Minister Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah has also been accused of breaching the OSA by divulging information from Cabinet meetings during the debate on Budget 2017.

Husni was originally called to Bukit Aman on Monday to record his statement.

But the police interview has been postponed.
