More BAD NEWS for GERAKAN and MCA as Partners of UMNO in BARISAN NASIONAL.
Ahmad Ismail, the Bukit Bendera UMNO Division Chief said today he would NOT apologise even AFTER the deputy prime minister has already done so on his behalf.
Ahmad Ismail as Bukit Bendera UMNO Division Chief labeled ALL Chinese Malaysians as "SQUATTERS" .
He said during a ceramah in Permatang Pauh in Aug 25, "...as the Chinese were only immigrants it was impossible to achieve equal rights amongst races.”
He added that he did NOT feel sorry and he would NOT recant his alleged racist remarks against Chinese Malaysians during the recent by-election campaign in Permatang Pauh.
Ahmad Ismail told Malaysiakini via telephone:
Ahmad has given his statement at the state police headquarters in Georgetown last night, following a series of police reports lodged against him in Penang (left), Kuala Lumpur, Ipoh, Seremban, Malacca and Petaling Jaya by Chinese-based political parties, including MCA, Gerakan and DAP.
“I am not apologetic because I didn’t do anything wrong.
As far as I am concerned, I did not say or do anything wrong.
So why should I apologise?”
The case is being investigated under Section 4(1)(B) of the Sedition Act 1948, which carries a fine not exceeding RM5,000 or a minimum three years’ jail, or both upon conviction.
Penang police crime investigation department chief SAC II Wan Abdullah Tuanku Said said the embattled Umno leader was cooperative and the recording of his statement went without hitches.
