Bersih denies terror and siege allegations, mulls legal action

Filed under: Politics — Hornbill Unleashed @ 9:01 PM

Bersih has denied the allegations by Red Shirts leader Jamal Md Yunos and is mulling legal action over the issue.

“Bersih has no connection with any terrorist groups whatsoever.

“We have no plans to gather at any airports in Malaysia and will follow the convoy and rally schedule as publicised in our media statements, website and social media.

“The allegations are baseless and are made with ill intentions to strike fear and violence,” said its steering committee in a media statement.

The committee said it is also assessing all legal options in dealing with such malicious allegations and will hold all those responsible who fabricate and circulate them.

Bersih, it added, is and will remain a people’s movement with its clear objective to peacefully strive for democratisation through electoral and institutional reform.

Earlier, Jamal claimed that Bersih plans to surround Putrajaya and airports during its Nov 19 rally.

The Red Shirts leader said he had been informed that the electoral watchdog has been infiltrated by the Islamic State (IS).

Jamal also revealed that his movement would mobilise its members and supporters to counter Bersih’s nationwide convoy and rally.

    • The BERSIH 5 Convoy starts on 1st October 2016 and will run every weekend until the BERSIH 5 rally on 19th November 2016. There will be seven convoys nationwide, starting from the North, South, East and West of Peninsula Malaysia and Sabah and Sarawak. The convoys will head towards Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching.

      The objective of the BERSIH convoy is to raise awareness about BERSIH 5’s demands for institutional reforms and the severity of the 1MDB crisis. As Malaysians, we must stand up and reach out to start a nationwide conversation on these issues because our collective future is in danger.

      The BERSIH Convoy is estimated to cover 246 cities, towns, and villages across Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah, and Sarawak.

      During the convoy, the participants will help to distribute BERSIH 5 flyers, do flash mobs and start conversations with different groups to discuss the impact of corruption and the need for reforms.

      If you are interested in joining the convoy, please check the convoy schedule and be at the Flag Off point 15 minutes before the convoy is due to depart.

      For any inquiries, contact the BERSIH Secretariat on 03-7931 4444 or email info@bersih.org.
