RJR: Penang PKR Youth urged the police today to investigate me, Raggie Jessy Rithaudeen, in what was alleged to be the criminal defamation of PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim via a video footage shared through WhatsApp and Facebook (see news item below).
In the first place, it is ironical that the report was lodged by persons without the locus standi on the matter when the person who should have lodged the report was the man I stand accused of ‘defaming’, Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
Nonetheless, I welcome the move by the Penang PKR Youth and hope that the police will now commence investigations into the matter with immediate effect.
As a matter of fact, I even invite Anwar to personally lodge a police report against me and extend the matter to court if necessary.
That will allow the authorities to gather evidence – which, for your information, is already in the possession of the Bukit Aman Special Branch – proving that Anwar was involved in a homosexual act “against the order of nature.”
Investigations into claims that Anwar planned to seize the Prime Minister’s position will also allow all parties concerned to legally quiz all Members of Parliament (both from Barisan Nasional and Pakatan Harapan), Fahmi Zainol himself, an NGO and government related departments to assist in investigations.
This is likely to open a Pandora’s box that is set to shock even the Prime Minister himself.
Previously, it was Anwar’s own police report that backfired when it triggered investigations into a sodomy claim leading to his conviction and subsequent imprisonment.
GEORGE TOWN: Penang PKR Youth urged the police today to investigate Third Force blogger Raggie Jessy Rithaudeen for criminally defaming PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
Penang PKR Youth chief Fahmi Zainol claimed the blogger did so in a video accusing Anwar of planning to seize the prime minister’s position by May this year.
The three-minute video clip was shared through WhatsApp and on a Facebook page also accused the PKR president of plotting with Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and DAP leaders for his own personal political agenda.
“At minute 1.23 of the video, he accused Anwar of selling out Islam and that Anwar will sell anything as long as he gets to be prime minister,” Fahmi said.
He lodged a report earlier at the Northeast district police headquarters here today.
The blogger also claimed Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was planning to hit Anwar with a third sodomy allegation.
Fahmi claimed the video was meant to create disharmony and to smear Anwar.
“His false accusations will cause racial discord and racial tension while smearing Anwar’s reputation and image as the Port Dickson MP and PKR President,” he said.
This morning, PKR Youth leaders lodged two police reports against Raggie over the video distributed online since April 3.
Kebun Bunga assemblyman Jason Ong Khan Lee said the allegations were serious and must be investigated.
“This is not the first time, we have seen so many false allegations against Anwar and something must be done to stop them from continuing to slander Anwar,” he said.
