Meanwhile, Ministry of Internal Affairs releases a statement, which says that the officers do not intend to go to any of the UNM offices for interrogating its members regarding the clash that occurred by the National Library on February 8, neither will they go to the Mayor`s office to interrogate municipal officials.

Everybody should respect investigation and refusal to go for interrogation and speaking in this manner I think is simply a impudence.
