PETALING JAYA: Wee Meng Chee (pic), who courted controversy last year by recording a parody of the national anthem, Negaraku, has been asked to present himself at the police headquarters in Bukit Aman tomorrow.
Wee, who recently graduated from a Taiwanese university, said the police contacted his father on Sept 11 and asked the 25-year-old to be at Bukit Aman on the specified date.
“They did not tell him why they wanted me to be present. They just set the date,” he said.
“I guess it is about the Negaraku rap. I am surprised. I thought the matter was laid to rest already as it was more than a year ago.”
Wee, who is staying at his family home in Muar, said his father would accompany him to Bukit Aman.
Wee hoped that by then, he would have engaged a lawyer, preferably “someone who is impartial to politics.”
Last year, while studying in Taiwan, Wee posted a six-minute video clip online, which used the Negaraku in a Mandarin rap.
Some quarters claimed the clip was offensive and disrespectful, but Wee said it was intended to be a satirical social commentary on life in Malaysia as a Chinese and was never meant to insult Islam or the Malays.
He has since apologised, saying that he had no intention to hurt anyone.
