Perkasa claims anti-Malaysia protests in Indonesia instigated by foreign spies

(Bernama) –  Pertubuhan Pribumi Perkasa Malaysia (Perkasa) claimed today that the anti-Malaysia demonstrations in Jakarta could have been instigated by certain quarters for political gain.

Its information chief, Ruslan Kassim, said the demonstrations could have been sponsored by a hidden hand and they could have been carefully planned by certain quarters.

“Perkasa regards the Jakarta demonstrations seriously and does not rule out the possible involvement of foreign spies,” he said in a media statement.

The anti-Malaysia protests in Jakarta came in the wake of the arrests of seven Malaysian fishermen on Aug 13 for alleged trespass in the waters near the Riau archipelago by Indonesian fisheries personnel, three of whom were detained by Malaysian marine police who insisted the Indonesians were in Malaysian waters.
