19 police reports against Perak Speaker

TRONOH, 23 Feb 2009: Police have received 19 reports against Perak state assembly Speaker V Sivakumar for suspending newly-appointed Menteri Besar Datuk Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir and six state executive councillors (exco).

Perak police chief Datuk Zulkifli Abdullah said 13 reports were lodged in Perak while three were made in the other states.

“All the reports have been handed over to Perak police since the case happened in the state. We have opened investigation papers and recorded statements from several witnesses,” he told reporters after a shooting competition at Perak Tengah police headquarters today.

Zulkifli said police would record a statement from Sivakumar soon to facilitate investigation.

Asked whether Sivakumar had lodged a police report that he was threatened, he said police did not receive any such report from the Speaker.

“If indeed he (Sivakumar) was threatened, he can lodge a police report and we will investigate to identify those responsible.

“The police report is important as we want to know the kind of threat made,” he said.

Zulkifli reminded the public not to spread rumours via SMS and warned those responsible to stop creating “naughty” messages as they were flouting the law.

In SHAH ALAM, three Umno Youth divisions today lodged a report against Sivakumar at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) here.

Petaling Jaya Selatan Umno Youth chief Rizuan Mahidin then led several members from the Sabak Bernam, Petaling Jaya Utara and Petaling Jaya Selatan divisions to hand the report to Selangor MACC assistant director Mohamad Anuar Ismail.

Rizuan said Selangor Umno Youth want MACC to investigate Sivakumar for suspending Zambry and his exco as it was against the wishes of the Perak Sultan who had acted based on the Perak constitution.

He added that Sivakumar had committed treason against the Sultan and also broken his oath as the Speaker under Article 1(c) of the Perak constitution.

It was also against Rule 72 of the Perak state assembly’s Standing Order, he added. — Bernama

    Now, the police stations and MACC office seem giving “answers” to Hishamudin’s “suggestion” in finding an avenue as an outlet to voice out frustrations.”If not it could lead to undesirable outcomes.”

    It is lunacy for Umno youth to make police reports against the Perak speaker for the suspension of their Umno and BN members. They have been “convinced” by Abdullah Badawi that “it is a criminal offence” and police reports “must” be made against the Perak speaker.

    The police also have “open investigation papers” and managed to get witnesses for statements.

    In the light of this, the federal government can deny and swear thousand times that the police and MACC are not being controlled. However, the people[rakyat] have already “accepted” it as a matter of fact, that Umno and BN have descended into gutter politics.

    I wonder if the speaker of the Perak assembly will now order the CPO of Perak to arrest all those who have made police reports against him in his official capacity ? It’s very simple really. All those police reports can be taken to be “Contemptuous of the Perak State Assembly”, and the speaker has the powers to address issues relating to contempt of the assembly.
