‘Umno paid his RM1.8 mil debt’: Zahrain cries slander

By Rahmah Ghazali, Free Malaysia Today

Former PKR MP Zahrain Mohamed Hashim fumed with anger over the allegation by an ex-political comrade that he had turned his back on the opposition party because Umno offered to settle his debt.

When approached for comment in Parliament, the visibly vexed Bayan Baru rep dismissed the allegation as a lie.

“That is slander and it is not true. If you are trying to get comments on slander and lies, that
would be hard… it’s not the truth!” he said.

Zahrain also challenged PKR secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution, who made the allegation, to take the matter to court.

“If got (evidence), charge me in court-lah! I don’t know what you are talking about…I don’t comment on rubbish,” he said.
