GEORGE TOWN: Police have wrapped up investigations into a video clip showing two traffic police outriders escorting a car driven by a VIP’s son in Jalan Bukit Gambir here.
Penang Commercial Crime Investigation Department chief Asst Comm Mohd Asmadi Yusoff said police submitted the investigation paper to the deputy public prosecutor’s office after recording statements from five people.
“The investigation into the case was completed last month. We have recorded the statements of five witnesses.
“The investigation paper has since been submitted to the deputy public prosecutor’s office and police are awaiting further instructions,” he said yesterday.
On May 8, police initiated an investigation after a video clip of the incident went viral.
The brief video, which was detected at 8.36pm on May 7, was uploaded on Facebook by a user named anwarazeez.
It showed a man at the wheel of a vehicle being escorted by two traffic policemen on a motorcycle.
The video showed a policeman appearing to stop an oncoming car intending to make a turn, allowing the vehicle to run the red light.
It also showed a car having the right of way abruptly braking, causing the vehicle behind it to also stop suddenly to avoid a collision.
The two traffic policemen seen on video escorting the private vehicle have since been reassigned to administrative duties pending the investigation.
