Lodge a police report to back your claims, Nur Jazlan tells Charles
"He should lodge a police report so that we can investigate his allegations," the Deputy Home Minister told reporters outside the Dewan Rakyat Thursday.
Charles Suresh, 51, had claimed in a statutory declaration on Wednesday that his brother had sent him a pendrive a month before his disappearance for safekeeping.
He said Kevin had told him that the pendrive contained information which “implicates certain personalities” of high standing in the country.
Nur Jazlan said Charles had not furnished the police with evidence to back his claims.
"Charles has made accusations but we have not received any police report for us to start investigations.
"He shouldn't make accusations like this without presenting the evidence to police. Police won't investigate wild rumours," he added.
The Deputy Minister's remarks echoes that of Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar, who urged Charles to share his findings with the police.
Khalid had said that Charles' failure to do so would be tantamount to him committing the offence of withholding evidence.
Charles claimed he did not believe that Kevin was killed because of his involvement in the prosecution of an army pathologist who has been charged with the murder.
