Patriot pledges to continue protecting national sovereignty

(The Malay Mail) – The Patriot group will always be firm and uncompromising in facing any attempt by traitors to threaten national sovereignty, said one of its senior leaders, Datuk Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim today.

Abdul Azeez, who was among those detained with Umno Youth head Khairy Jamaluddin when the Patriot group opposed the street demonstration at Bukit Bintang yesterday, said the aim of the Patriot group was not merely to participate in the street demonstration but as a protest to any group trying to create chaos in the country.

“Our struggle is to defend the Istana Negara and Merdeka Stadium from being tainted, and most importantly, we want to face those who are going against the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and our beloved country.

“Patriot is always firm, if there are any group wanting to challenge the national sovereignty, we will be in the front line and we will assemble hundreds of thousands of youths if necessary,” said Abdul Azeez.

Besides Abdul Azeez and Khairy, others who were detained yesterday included Umno Youth assistant secretary Datuk Megat Firdaus Megat Junid and Umno Youth Exco member Lokman Adam.
