Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun said police will investigate the forum on the Rome Statute, organised at Universiti Malaya on Saturday, under the Sedition Act.

The IGP said several reports had been lodged over the forum and police would be calling in several people involved, including the organisers, to record their statements, after launching the new Brickfields police headquarters on Monday.

Mohamad Fuzi added that several police reports had also been lodged against PKR leader and former academician Prof Dr Syed Husin Ali over his remarks at the forum.

The forum on the Rome Statute was organised by civil society groups including Patriot, Sisters in Islam, G25, Abim and Gerak.
