He said that in a statement, the Inspector-General of Police said the warning was unfounded. Further adding that it was based on media platforms and has no solid grounds.
In a special press conference, he said he will look into the matter with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and question Japanese officials that on what basis the warning was issued by Japan. The Royal Malaysia Police also said that they have not received any security threats to houses of worship or huge crowded places.
The statement comes by the Malaysian government a day after Japan warned its citizens regarding the terror attack in Southeast Asian countries, particularly in Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines, and Myanmar.
