He advised the public not to spread unverified information that could lead to speculations.

Razarudin said the police report that went viral claiming Abdul Taib was removed from a hospital was valid, that led to an investigation under Section 336 of the Penal Code focusing on actions that may endanger Abdul Taib’s health.

“Police submitted the investigation papers to the Sarawak State Prosecution Office yesterday (February 10), and we are still awaiting further instructions,” he said, adding that it was not an ‘abduction’ because the individual who removed him from the hospital to be brought home was his wife. — Borneo Post Online
