Bersih slams thuggery, says Jamal’s crossed the line

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

Electoral reform coalition Bersih has blasted Sungai Besar Umno division chief Jamal Md Yunos for the red shirts protestors attack on a yellow-clad participant yesterday in Sabak Bernam.

“They could have killed him. Jamal Yunos has crossed the line and such actions tantamount to thuggery and it is criminal and violence of the worst degree,” said Bersih in a statement this morning.

The group condemned the incidents of violence seen in yesterday’s confrontations between Bersih participants on their nationwide convoy, and the pro-government red shirts led by Jamal.

“In particular, a Bersih supporter was physically beaten up by these group of thugs.

“The gangsters egged him, pulled him off his bike, kicked and punched him with such force that it injured him badly,” said the coalition.

Yesterday Bersih went on its third nationwide convoy to drum up awareness for the Bersih 5 rally on Nov 19, which calls for electoral and institutional reforms beginning with Prime Minister Najib Razak’s resignation.

The convoys from six locations in several states saw regular run-ins with the opposing red shirts, with the confrontation in Sabak Bernam, Selangor seeing considerable violence against the yellow-clad Bersih participants.

In his own statement today, Jamal complained the police yesterday purportedly gave Bersih participants “special treatment” in contrast to the treatment his red shirts members received.

  1. The red dogs are clearly out to create trouble, behaving like gangsters. If the authority does not stop this kind of nonsense, God knows what will become of them … maybe from bad to worst … buat malu
