BUTTERWORTH: The Penang Road Transport Department (RTD) will take legal action against any quarters that linked the department with the death of businessman Syed Amen Jaizul Abidin, who was fatally shot in an
incident last Thursday.
Penang RTD director Noorul Habib Abdul Guduse said the department was looking into a claim which linked Syed Amen’s death to an incident at the lobby of the Batu Uban RTD office in Batu Gelugor, where a recording of it had become viral on the social media.
“Our officers are studying all evidence, including a recording of a media conference by a non-governmental organisation which accused RTD of being involved in Syed Amen’s death.
“A police report will be lodged soon,” he told reporters after an operation held in conjunction with the Chinese New Year celebration here last night.
Syed Amen, 46, was shot at close range in his car in front of a high-powered motorcycle shop at about 3.30 am last Thursday.- BERNAMA
