PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Umno supreme council member Lokman Noor Adam was arrested after refusing to cooperate with the police when they searched his house on Thursday (June 13).

Selangor CID chief Fadzil Ahmat said that a police team went to his house in Kajang Hillpark in the afternoon.

Datuk Lokman had given a statement to the police earlier on Thursday over the gay sex videos implicating Economic Affairs Minister Azmin Ali.

"During the search, he (Lokman) was instructed to hand over his phone for inspection but he refused to cooperate. He also shouted at the officer doing his duty there," Senior Assistant Commissioner Fadzil said when contacted.

Also arrested was Malaysian Indian Congress member Gobalakrishnan Nagapan, who was at the house then.

Both were detained for obstructing a public servant from discharging his duty and using abusive language.

"They have been brought to the Kajang police headquarters. Follow-up investigations are ongoing," said SAC Fadzil.

 
 

He added that police had gone to Mr Lokman's house in the course of an investigation under Section 504 of the Penal Code, which is for intentional insult with intent to provoke a breach of the peace.

Mr Lokman on Tuesday had lodged a report at the Putrajaya police headquarters to call for a full investigation to be conducted on the sex video scandal.
