I refer to the incessant attacks upon Nurul Izzah Anwar over the meeting with Jacel Kiram.
Nurul Izzah and Tian Chua have explained that they had not arranged for any such meeting, and that Jacel was invited by the hosts which included the Office of the Vice President of Philippines.
No evidence has been produced by the government to controvert this explanation.
Despite this, top government leaders and police leadership have spared no effort in vilifying Nurul Izzah including making wild allegations of treasonous conduct. These politically motivated attacks are disgraceful and cowardly.
In this regard, the latest move by BN MPs to take punitive action against Nurul Izzah through Parliament is both undemocratic and a gross abuse of the Parliamentary process. If carried through, it is nothing short of the tyranny of the majority showcasing once again BN as the big bully on the block.
This harassment must stop and BN leaders should instead answer the public’s questions on the various national financial scandals gripping the country.
