Beleagured Negeri Menteri Besar Mohamad Hasan must suspend his state executive councillor who allegedly fired a weapon last week.
SEREMBAN: Negeri Sembilan DAP secretary Cha Kee Chin has issued an ultimatum to Negeri Sembilan Menteri Besar Mohamad Hasan, demanding that he suspend an Umno exco member who allegedly fired a weapon on Thursday night.
Cha, who is Bukit Kepayang assemblyman, also wants Mohamad to explain what really happened.

“The incident happened on Thursday night. It is regretted that as chief of the state government, Mohamad did not give any statement on the alleged incident.

“This is a serious case and he can’t keep quiet on the matter. A police report has been lodged and police admitted that they are investigating the incident.

“But Mohamad has still not given any statement or taken any action so far.

“Tomorrow is the state exco meeting and I hope Mohamad will give a statement on the matter. If he chooses to remain silent, all Pakatan Rakyat state assemblymen will raise the issue in State Legislative Assembly sitting which is scheduled to commence on Oct 8 and 9,” Cha told reporters here today.

Meanwhile, Rasah PKR deputy chief, R Tangam, reminded the police not to cover up the case but to investigate without fear or favour.

“If this case is covered up, Pakatan leaders and members will lodge a complaint to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission [MACC] headquarters in Putrajaya.

“We also will lodge another report with the Attorney-General. I hope the police won’t practise double standard in this case,” said Tangam.

Seremban PKR deputy chief, Dr Mohamad Rafie Abdul Malek, reiterated that police must take action just like what they did against Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim’s bodyguard, Harizal Zahid, in Malacca on Sept 8.

“There should not be any double standard. The latest incident proves that Umno leaders in Negeri Sembilan are unethical and have bad behaviour.

“It’s not not only this case, but also the corruption allegation case involving Lenggeng state assemblyman Mustafa Salim [Umno] who was charged in court and the case is still ongoing.

“Then there is the alleged RM10 million which was transferred abroad by Mohamad.”

Also present at the press conference was Negeri Sembilan PAS Youth chief, Mohd Khairil Anuar Wafa.
