Retract claims or I’ll sue, Ngeh warns Ismail


MP for Beruas gives Minister Ismail Sabri 48 hours to apologise over lies that he has shares in a restaurant and is anti-Islam.

(Free Malaysia Today) – A DAP MP has reacted to a statement by minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob which he said were blatant lies and has given him 48 hours to retract the claims or face legal action.

Perak DAP chairman Ngeh Koo Ham was referring to a message Minister of Agriculture and Agro-based Industries Ismail Sabri Yaakob posted on Facebook urging the Malay community to boycott Chinese businesses who refused to lower prices, specifically Old Town White Coffee which Ngeh and his family had shares in. Ismail also accused Ngeh of being anti-Islam.

”There is not an iota of truth that I have shares in Old Town White Coffee or that I am anti-Islam.

“I never have, neither have I now nor in any part of my life, had shares in Old Town White Coffee,” he told The Malaysian Insider today.

He also said he had publicly denied any links to the franchise and stated his social work among his Muslim constituents in Beruas was proof enough that he was not anti-Islam.
