Pakatan claims BN behind fake Sultan attacks

(The Malaysian Insider) – Pakatan Rakyat (PR) has claimed that Barisan Nasional (BN) is engineering an Ops Lalang-style crackdown on the opposition by erecting banners critical of the Selangor Sultan in PR’s name.

Shah Alam MP Khalid Samad today revealed that a banner insulting the Sultan and bearing the logos of PAS, the DAP and PKR was found this morning in Section 9 here.

The banner, which also bore the mark of the Selangor PKR information bureau, read: “Dimanakah keadilan Sultan dalam isu pemilihan SUK? Siapa lebih berhak?” (Where’s the Sultan’s justice in the state secretary appointment issue? Who has more right?)

Khalid stressed that PR had never questioned the royal institution and said the banner pitting the opposition against the palace was part of BN’s “slick game” to cause trouble in the state by stoking Malay anger.

“I am concerned there may be an evil plan… to give the impression that we want to oppose the palace, which can be used as an excuse for emergency laws or mass arrests under the ISA (Internal Security Act),” he said.
