JOHOR BAHRU, Feb 6 — Johor police have received 16 reports against Tan Sri Tommy Thomas over his recently published book My Story: Justice in the Wilderness.
State Police chief Datuk Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay said they began receiving reports from various parties against the former attorney-general from the first day the issue came to light.
“We will begin investigations under Section 500 and Section 203A of the Penal Code and Section 8 of the Official Secrets Act 1972,” he told Bernama when contacted today.
Thomas, who served as attorney-general from June 2018 to February last year, sparked controversy as his 500-page book published on Jan 30 is alleged to have twisted the country’s history and insulted the Attorney-General’s Chambers.
Various parties have urged the government to ban the book, including Johor Umno Youth, who lodged a police report at the Johor Bahru Selatan police district headquarters today. — Bernama
