AG Ikut Cakap UMNO. IGP Ikut Cakap UMNO. Apa Jawapan Loyar UMNO?
We call upon the IGP and the AG to urgently explain why the sudden interest to proceed with arrest and prosecution of politically-motivated police reports made by UMNO members and pro-government NGOs against MPs, activists and lawyers.
In a meeting held between 60 Umno division leaders and the AG and IGP on 14th August, both IGP and the AG were told to act on the police reports made against government critics.
Clearly soon after, the sedition charges started and Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim’s lawyer N Surendran (who is also PKR MP of Padang Serai) was charged over a statement made regarding the Fitnah 2 court judgment.
PAS MP for Shah Alam Khalid Samad was also charged over a statement regarding the powers of MAIS.
Subsequently many others have been investigated, arrested or charged.
The investigations and arrests made against these MPs and many others in last several weeks were in response to police reports made by UMNO members and complaints by UMNO leaders.
The AG must act professionally and not succumb to pressure from any quarter.
