Anwar under fire over alleged MH370 remark


(Malaysian Times) – MCA Organizing Secretary, Datuk Yoo Wei How slammed Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim for criticising the Government effort in searching for MH370.

“If Anwar’s is as good as he claim, there should be no water crisis in Selangor, no flooding problem in Penang and the issue of Non-Muslim rights in Penang and Selangor should be solved by now,” said Yoo, in a statement to The Malaysian Times (TMT).

“When Anwar’s was an Education Minister, non-mandarin speaking senior assistant and school heads was assigned to head SRJKCs and from here we can see that it is obvious Anwar’s is helpless in solving problems,” Yoo added.

Yoo was responding to Anwar’s remark that he can do a “split second” decision regarding the tragedy of the missing flight MH370 if he were the Prime Minister.

Meanwhile, the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) today lodged a police report against Anwar for allegedly accusing Malaysia of hiding facts with regard to the missing Malaysia Airlines (MAS) MH370 flight.

Federal Territory PPP chairman Datuk A. Chandrakumanan made the report at the Sentul Police headquarters. He was accompanied to the police station by 30 supporters of the party.

Chandrakumanan urged the police and the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) to conduct an investigation and take stern action against Anwar.

He alleged that Anwar had allegedly made the statement on March 22, on the eve of polling in the Kajang state by-election, over social media, including his blog, Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Sentul Police chief ACP Zakaria Pagan said the report would be handed over to the Sepang Police headquarters as a report on the matter had been made there earlier.
