PKR Asks the Police to Probe into Alleged Racist Statement by Former Judge


PETALING JAYA, 14 May: PKR urged the Selangor Chief Police, Datuk Tun Hisan Tun Hamzah to investigate the racially laced statement issued by former Court of Appeal Judge, Datuk Mohd Noor Abdullah.

PKR Secretary-General, Datuk Saifuddin Nasution Ismail said that this investigation is a continuity of the police action in calling several Pakatan Rakyat (PR) leaders up regarding the statement at the ‘People’s Voice is a Sacred Voice’ Assembly at the Kelana Jaya Stadium last week.

“I would like to also propose to the Selangor Chief of Police to further add under the Sedition Act, former Court of Appeal Judge, Datuk Mohd Noor Abdullah, where his statement was laced with sedition compared to the Pakatan leaders’ slogan at Kelana Jaya.

“I urge for the Selangor Chief of Police to re-check the statement where it was mentioned that it is taboo for Malays to be challenged, that the Chinese are just waiting for time to receive punishment for betraying the trust of Malays and so on,” he said at a press conference at the PKR headquarters.

Prior to this, Mohd Noor claimed that the Chinese community allegedly betrayed the loyal bonds of friendship with the Malays through efforts to snatch political power.

According to Saifuddin, so far, the Seri Setia Assemblyman, Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad and PKR Strategy Director, Rafizi Ramli, have been called to give their statements.

Meanwhile, PKR De Facto Leader, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has been contacted by the police and is still setting a date for a meeting.

In the meantime, the Pakatan Rakyat Secretariat Council is ready to join in the ‘People’s Voice is a Sacred Voice’ Assembly and to submit proposals to hold a National Unity Convention as the racism polemic has been risen again after the 13th General Election (GE-13).

This proposal will be brought before the Pakatan Rakyat Presidents Council to receive approval and it will be announced in the near future.

Saifuddin added that this convention will discuss on the strengthening formula between races in Malaysia.

Meanwhile, Pakatan Rakyat will hold familiarisation sessions with all PR candidates who won Parliamentary and constituency seats across the country to hear the briefing and message regarding work procedure during the Parliament and State Legislative Assembly sittings.

At the GE-13, Pakatan Rakyat won 89 out of 222 Parliamentary seats and 229 out of 505 constituency seats contested.
