losing faith with the Najib administration
KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 14 — Malay rights group Perkasa threatened today to “do something” to the government if it fails to take action over three outstanding matters — Bersih 2.0’s “illegal rally”, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s alleged sex video and DAP’s “Christian conspiracy”.
Its president, Datuk Ibrahim Ali, broke a long silence to say that Perkasa members have begun to lose confidence in the Najib administration, claiming it had failed to uphold the rule of law.
“This is our decision today — if there is no action taken on these three issues within a reasonable time, we will do something. Justice delayed is justice denied,” the fiery leader charged at the media conference.
Ibrahim did not, however, elaborate on Perkasa’s plans.
He stressed that Perkasa has been “very patient” and has even withstood countless insults from others, particularly over the Bersih 2.0 rally.
“We have been called cowards for not going ahead with our rally when all we did was respect the law and the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s decree,” he lamented.
The Pasir Mas MP had initially planned to hold a counter-rally on July 9 but cancelled the plan at the final moment after the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin issued a rare decree calling all warring parties to settle their differences amicably.
“So now, if the government takes no action within a reasonable period of time, we will take action and at that time, the government should not blame Perkasa.
“We have been told to respect the government and the law, and we have done all that, and yet the government has been unresponsive,” he said.
Ibrahim also claimed that the “silent majority” would likely punish the Najib administration should it fail to resolve the three outstanding issues.
He further claimed “the whole world” knew that Bersih 2.0 chairman Datuk Ambiga Sreenavasan had acted illegally when she proceeded with the July 9 rally on the streets.
He said foreign experts have also declared with 99.99 per cent certainty that the man in the recently released sex video is Anwar.
On the Christian conspiracy claims, which first surfaced in Utusan Malaysia following accusations found in pro-Umno blogs, Ibrahim pointed out that one DAP Muslim member had lodged a report on the issue, which the lawmaker said proved the claim to be true.
“What more do we need? What more needs to be investigated? There were 4,000 police reports lodged against Ambiga, for example.
“We want the Attorney-General to proceed with action on these issues and whether or not there is a prima facie case, let the courts decide,” said Ibrahim.
