Red Shirts leader Datuk Jamal Md Yunos accused Bersih 2.0 today of assaulting their own supporter in Sabak Bernam and media personnel in Kuala Selangor, even though the victims have blamed his movement for the attacks.
News portal Malaysiakini reported Jamal as claiming that the attacker in Sabak Bernam who kicked a Bersih supporter on a motorbike had impersonated the Red Shirts by wearing a scarlet T-shirt.
“I wish to state that the violence and provocation before this is by Bersih.
“The motorcyclist in yellow who was kicked from the back, (the attacker) was hired by Bersih, to wear the same T-shirt that we wear,” Jamal was quoted saying after a counter-rally against the Bersih convoy in Kapar.
Jamal, who is also an Umno division chief, reportedly said the polls reform group was also behind the assault against journalists covering the Bersih convoy outside a hypermarket in Kuala Selangor last Saturday.
The police are investigating the attack under Section 506 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation and had arrested three suspects.
Malaysiakini reported that both rallies by the Red Shirts and Bersih at Kapar today ended peacefully.
