Man Arrested While Trying To Hand Over Memo To PM

PORT DICKSON, Aug 30 (Bernama) -- Police arrested a middle-aged man when he tried to hand over a "memorandum" to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah during an official gathering here Tuesday.

The man was immediately taken to the Port Dickson district police station for questioning but it was not immediately clear if he was detained."We will have to make further investigations," Port Dickson district police chief Supt Mazlan Othman told reporters here.

He declined to revealed the man's identity or the contents of the memorandum.

The incident happened at the launching of the "Rapat Bestari Kebangsaan" programme, which was officiated by Abdullah. The function was telecast live on RTM 1.

According to eye witnesses, the smartly attired man suddenly walked up to the podium where Abdullah was seated with several other national leaders and tried to hand over an envelope containing the memorandum to the Prime Minister.

He was about two metres away from Abdullah when policemen and Abdullah's bodyguards intercepted him.A minor commotion ensued and he was eventually overpowered.

He was heard shouting, "Don't hit me, I am an old man. Save Tanjung Tuan!" causing his denture to fall off.
