KUALA TERENGGANU (The Star): Police arrested Datuk Dr Ahmad Ramzi Mohamad Zubir, the political secretary to former Terengganu Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh, on Tuesday to assist investigations into the threatening text message received by three Barisan Nasional assemblymen last month.

Deputy state police chief SAC II Hamzah Mohd Jamil said with Ahmad Ramzi’s arrest, police believed they have settled about 95 per cent of the case.

Police also seized two laptop computers and a modem from Ahmad Ramzi’s home in Kampung Kubang Parit, near here, at 3pm Tuesday.

“This is not an easy case as it involves technical matters. But we have acted to solve the case as soon as possible,” he said.

Police had been looking for Ahmad Ramzi as he was among the individuals who had given media statements regarding the death threat contained in the text message received by Ajil assemblyman Datuk Rosol Wahid, Abdul Halim Jusoh (Permaisuri) and Zakaria Abdullah (Paka) on April 13.

This prompted 10 Barisan assemblymen, including the three who received the message, to stay away from the Terengganu state assembly sitting on April 14.

Hamzah said, Ahmad Ramzi, who was a Barisan candidate in the 12th general election, was being held at the Terengganu police headquarters and would be remanded if the investigations could not be completed within 24 hours.

Police were investigating the case under Section 507 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation and Section 500 of the same law for defamation.

Ahmad Ramzi is also being investigated under the Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1988 for improper use of network services. – Bernama

Datuk Dr Ahmad Ramzi Mohammad, the political secretary to former Terengganu Menteri Besar, Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh, is now wanted by police.

Police obtained today a warrant of arrest for the 42-year-old after he failed to take up their offfer to turn up for questioning within 72 hours.

Terengganu police had given him three days from Friday to show up or face arrest so that he can be interviewed in connection with the SMS death threats that were sent to three assemblymen last month.

Terengganu police deputy chief SAC II Hamzah Mohd Jamil said police have also issued an alert to the Immigration Department to ensure that Zamri does not leave the country.

Interpol have also been informed to trace Ahmad Ramzi’s whereabouts.
“Those with information about him should call the nearest police station as Ramzi’s cooperation is very much needed for this case,” he told reporters.

The SMS threat issue took centre stage last month amid a political tug of war between embattled Menteri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said and at least 10 state assembleymen aligned to to Idris.

The three assemblymen lodged police reports shortly after receiving the SMS threats.

Ramzi, who is now Idris’ special officer, was also at the police station grounds when they lodged the reports.

In their reports, the three assemblymen said the SMSes were believed to have been sent by Ahmad’s senior private secretary , Wan Ahmad Wan Muda, who allegedly told them not to proceed with a rumoured plan to table a motion of no-confidence against Ahmad at the state assembly sitting.

The three and the seven other ‘rebels’, citing security concerns, boycotted the sitting next day and Wan Ahmad also lodged a police report on the matter next day.

Police later absolved him (Wan Ahmad) of any involvement. Several days later a 31-year-old clerk from Seri Kembangan was arrested at his house, suspected of being the SMS sender.

Ahmad Ramzi went missing a day after the clerk was arrested.

The case is being investigated under Section 507 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation by annonymous communication.
