KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 22, 2015:
Veteran Umno Malaysia wants the police to investigate who is behind the actions of former Umno Batu Kawan division vice-chairman Datuk Seri Khairuddin Abu Hassan and his lawyer Matthias Chang.
Its secretary, Datuk Mustapha Yaakub, said Khairuddin’s actions had not only endangered the country, but the mastermind in the plot to topple the government must also have action taken against the person.
Mustapha said he felt puzzled by Khairuddin’s actions which he claimed as being in line with the statement made by former premier Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak might get arrested if he went out of the country.
“Umno Veteran wants the police to investigate who Khairuddin and Matthias are working for, going overseas to lodge police reports and also planning to meet up with the FBI?” Mustapha asked, referring to the United States of America’s Federal Bureau of Investigation.
“What is the link between Khairuddin and Matthias’ mission with the statement made by Tun M that Najib may be arrested if he goes overseas,” he added.
“Is Tun M behind what Khairuddin and Mathias are doing? If this is true, then why is it that only Khairuddin is arrested? If what Khairuddin is doing is considered dangerous, what about the action of the person behind him?”
“Therefore Veteran Umno wants police to investigate thoroughly and we urge whoever is involved in the plot to topple the government to be arrested and punished,” Mustapha said in a statement today.
Veteran Umno also expressed its disappointment with the action of the US Embassy in agreeing to act as a “mediator” to arrange the meeting between Khairuddin and the FBI.
This action, Mustapha alleged, signalled that the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) issue being talked about now was a creation of foreign powers, in a bid to topple the powers of the Malays in this country.
