Not mincing words, Salleh Said Keruak hits out at “absolutely rude” and “low class” Sarawak Report.
- Criticised “people from so-called civilised England” for lack of respect to PM’s wife
- Claimed “slanderous allegations” hurled
- Alleged Sarawak Report is “afraid of being transparent”
In a post on his blog sskeruak.blogspot.my last night, Communications and Multimedia Minister Salleh Said Keruak lashed out at whistleblower site Sarawak Report for stalking and harassing the PM’s wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, while she is currently in London. Salleh criticised the website for its “absolute lack of decorum and manners”.
“We would expect people from so-called civilised England to at least show respect to the wife of a foreign prime minister, but apparently diplomacy is reserved only for their own kind.”
According to Salleh, “They shouted slanderous allegations that are nothing but a pack of lies while saying that freedom of the press allows them to say whatever they like. They then asked Rosmah why go to the UK if she does not want to be stalked.”
Calling out Sarawak Report as “absolutely rude” and “low class”, Salleh alleged that Sarawak Report was “afraid of being transparent” in refusing to publish their accounts and reveal their source of funds.
Meanwhile, a YouTube video uploaded by blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin titled ‘Sarawak Report stalks and harasses Rosmah Mansor in London, 8th May 2017‘ shows two men and a woman outside the compound of a building against what appears to be a London backdrop.
In the footage, one of the men said, “You shouldn’t come here if you don’t want to be exposed to proper journalism, and the focus of the world’s attention on what is the biggest financial crime in the modern era. You should pay back the money to the Malaysian people because I know they need it.”
The patron of Permata Negara, Rosmah is on a seven-day visit to the UK to expand the Permata programme. The Sarawak Report had launched some allegations over her visit.
