‘Insecure’ PBB Leader Behind My Arrest, Claims DAP’s Abdul Aziz


KUCHING: Abdul Aziz Isa, the DAP youth leader who was detained for a short while Saturday afternoon, believes it was all about ‘political revenge’ made by a particular Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) leader.

He claimed that the police report against him was lodged by a PBB Batu Lintang youth member on instructions of his ‘boss’ (name provided).

“I think he feels insecure with my criticism on him regarding the Rohinya refugee issue in Sarawak,” said Abdul Aziz, a grandnephew of Sarawak governor Taib Mahmud.

“This particular person is afraid to show his hand in the public. I have nothing to fear, as fighting for the rights of the people of Sarawak is not a path of roses. I will not give up on the truth.”

Abdul Aziz was arrested under Sec 504 of the Penal Code and Section 233(1)(a) of the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Act. The charge was that he had posted some unpleasant remarks about the prime minister.

Tucking in on a sumptuous meal after he was released on police bail late Saturday.

The police claimed that they do not require a warrant to effect the arrest and also refused a lawyer to be present for the interrogation.

Abdul Aziz who was later released on police bail added he would continue to speak out for the people.
