Probe May 13 posting, says Gerakan Youth

KUALA LUMPUR: Gerakan Youth has called on the police to investigate a social media post allegedly made by Red Shirt leader Datuk Seri Jamal Yunos threatening a repeat of the May 13 riots.

Gerakan Youth deputy Andy Yong urged the police to investigate whe­ther the posting on Facebook was true.

“We refer to the post ‘Saya berjanji Tragedi 13 MAY akan berulang dan PARANG TERBANG akan terjadi jika BERSIH 5 dibuat pada masa, tarikh dan tempat yang sama dengan perhimpunan #BERSIH5 yang dijadualkan pada 19 November ini. Hidup Melayu!’ (I promise the May 13 tragedy will be repeated and parang will fly if Bersih 5 is held at the same time, date and place as the #BERSIH5 rally scheduled for No­­vem­­ber 19. Long live the Malays!).”

Yong was speaking to reporters after lodging a police report at the Dang Wangi police headquarters yesterday.

He said he was aware that Jamal claimed the Facebook account on which the statement was posted was fake and did not belong to him.

“If it was Jamal who posted it, I hope the police will take stern action against him for sedition.

“If it was a fake account, I hope the necessary action is taken to find the true culprits and bring them to justice,” he said.

Yong also urged police to take appropriate action against those responsible for the provocations in Teluk Intan, Sabak Bernam and Gurney Drive in Penang recently.
