Muhyiddin: Police probe best way to clear air over Guan Eng’s son

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 24 — Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin today defended his remarks that Lim Guan Eng should ask the police to probe claims his son had molested a girl as the best way to put an end to the allegations.

Muhyiddin said a statement from Lim on his son’s innocence might not be good enough for the public and that a proper investigation would serve to end talk of the 16-year-old’s alleged assault.

“That’s my intention, not that I want to interfere. Please get the intention. There’s no ill-feeling,” he said in reply to Ipoh Timur MP Lim Kit Siang in Parliament today.

“I’m not saying he’s guilty but other people make their own evaluation… It will be cleared very much easier (via a police probe). It’s not a question of politics,” Muhyiddin (picture) added.
