KEDAH Menteri Besar Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor will be called up today to record a statement over his claim that Penang belongs to Kedah.

Police secretary Noorsiah Saaduddin said an investigation into Sanusi was opened after reports were filed over his statement. 

She said the probe is filed under section 112 of the criminal procedure code.

“The investigations will be conducted by Bukit Aman’s classified crime investigation unit (D5) under section 505 (b) of the penal code and section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998,” she said in a statement yesterday night.
