Press Statement by YB Wong Kah Woh, DAP Perak State Secretary and ADUN Canning, on 25.09.2014 (Thursday) in Ipoh:
I recorded my statement for my police report against Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi for his seditious remarks and baseless, wild accusations towards DAP with the Investigating Officer at 9.20am this morning at IPD Ipoh. I have also taken the opportunity to urge the Police to obtain a copy of Zahid’s ceramah recording from the Special Branch Officers and to take immediate action against him.
The recording of statement took approximately 45 minutes. It is shameful for a seasoned politician like Zahid to have resorted to the creation of racial hatred and disharmony in his attempt to win the votes of the full Malay audience. Zahid also quoted the example of a demonstration in Kuala Kangsar during the Constitutional Crisis and launched baseless accusations that the DAP threw stones towards the car of the Raja Muda. Zahid has to be responsible for his statement.
No one is above the law, including the Home Minister, Zahid himself. As the complainant to the police report against Zahid, I have given full co-operation to the police within 24 hours and recorded my statement as requested. We will now see whether or not the police can act impartially in order to secure the presence of Zahid for his statement to be recorded.
At the same time, Zahid’s baseless and wild accusation of DAP throwing the stones at the car of the Raja Muda is uncalled for and he shall be subject to investigation on this fold. We hereby challenge Zahid to lodge a police report on the alleged stone-throwing incidents as accused by him to prove his case. However, Zahid should also be reminded that there will be serious consequence for lodging a false report.
The Police and the AG Chambers have levied a charge against the former Menteri Besar of Perak, Dato’ Seri Mohd Nizar bin Jamaluddin, based on the recording of one of his ceramahs in 2012, for allegedly criminally defaming the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak. If the charge against Nizar is truly necessary, just and fair, Zahid will not be immune for his baseless accusation and attack against the DAP.
