PH aides lodged police report for alleged defamation against PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang over an article in the party’s newsletter.
Their spokesman, Nor Miswary Ramli, the political secretary to Segambut MP Hannah Yeoh, said they lodged the report at the Dang Wangi police headquarters claiming Hadi had defamed PH in the article published in Harakah yesterday.
He said the essence of what Hadi wrote could drive fear into Malaysians and disrupt harmony in our multiracial society, adding that it will also cause hatred towards PH.
“As a president of a political party in Malaysia, his article could also influence his followers and party members to disrupt religious harmony as well.
Nor Miswary, who was a special officer to the then deputy women, family and community development minister, urged the police to probe Hadi under Section 505(b) of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.
He was accompanied by representatives from DAP and Amanah when lodging the report. – FMT
