DPM,-Zahid-Hamidi,-George-Soros-Foundation,-foreign-involvement,-national-politics,-Merdeka-Centre,-Malaysiakini,-BersihThe information that hedge fund billionaire George Soros is funding Bersih, Merdeka Centre and Malaysiakini must be investigated, Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said today.

He said the investigation must also be done empirically.

Zahid, who is also Home Minister, said it was not a question of “who was funded” and “why”, but more of a question of foreign involvement in national politics.

“There is no need for foreign involvement, let alone in terms of political funding, either to go against or to support any organisation or individual,” he told reporters after the launch of the book, Being Abdullah Badawi, here today.

It was reported that a foreign group chaired by Soros had been funding several local organisations in its programmes to influence the outcome of the next general election.

When asked about the call made by several leaders for the organisations involved to be investigated, Zahid said it would be done if a police report was made on the issue.

“Let them lodge a police report first. We will act on it. We are not subject to speculation or mere suggestion,” he said.

  1. Another trick by Umno to evoke fears of Soros as the Jewish bogeyman to scare the Malays into hating Bersih.

  2. Had not a very friendly Saudi Arabia Prince donated RM2.6 billion deposited into Najib’s private bank accounts for Umno Baru to fight the DAP in 2013 election?
