Anwar: Sedition charges & arrest of PPS a trend of stifling Pakatan’s influence

SHAH ALAM, 1 Sept: The move by the Umno-BN government of imposing sedition charges against members of opposition political parties and the arrest of the Penang Volunteer Patrol Team (PPS) is a trend of stifle Pakatan Rakyat in this country.

Opposition Leader, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, said that Putrajaya was after everybody who had an impact on society.


“Clearly the trend is such. They are going after everybody that is seen to be effective in expressing their views,” he said, quoted from The Malaysian Insider.

Anwar was speaking during the ground-breaking ceremony for a religious school at Guar Jering, Permatang Pauh, which received RM1.59 million in funding from the Penang government.

The list of opposition members facing sedition charges includes: N. Surendran and Tian Chua from PKR, R. S. N. Rayer and Teresa Kok from the DAP, and Khalid Samad from PAS.

He said it is a hypocritical scenario where “flimsy charges” were being laid on the opposition, while racist statements by those who support Umno and Barisan Nasional were let off scot-free.
