Kepong MP urges police probe against PAS chief for labelling non-Muslims, non-Bumiputera as most corrupt
Kepong MP Lim Lip Eng today urged police to probe PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang for making a remark that may cause public outrage after the latter said that non-Muslims and non-Bumiputera contributed to the majority of Malaysia’s corruption rate.
(MMO) – The DAP lawmaker also questioned the Islamist party’s top man’s intention for stating such statistics without any solid proof or reference to support it.
“Therefore, I also ask the police to investigate Abdul Hadi whether he has issued malicious statements that have caused public outrage.
“If the statement is proven to be unfounded, I want the government to drag him to the criminal court according to Section 505(c) of the Penal Code for making a statement with the intention of favouring any group or race, Section 504 of the same code which is a humiliating statement that may cause a breach of peace and or other acts that can be convicted on him,” he said in a statement today.
Section 505(c) of the Penal Code, carries imprisonment which may extend to two years, or with fine, or both, upon conviction.
“Abdul Hadi can get the official figures of corruption cases in our country as well as statistics according to the states that are in the highest position of corruption crimes, to prove his statement.
