Police have opened an investigation paper regarding the investigation report of former Attorney General Tan Sri Tommy Thomas’ memoirs entitled ‘My Story: Justice in the Wilderness’ which was leaked in a local website (Malaysia Today).
(The Edge) – Bukit Aman secretary Datuk Noorsiah Mohd Saaduddin in a statement on Thursday said the investigation into the website was conducted in accordance with Section 8 of the Official Secrets Act, Section 203A of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.
