A lorry with number plate KY6627 from Kepala Batas arrived at Bandar Sunway, Permatang Pauh today carrying campaign banners that were meant to be hoisted somewhere between Sunway Hotel and EPF office.
Unfortunately, the banners carry such malicious and slanderous message about the PKR candidate, Anwar Ibrahim, with anti-American and anti-Semitic slogans like ‘Hari ini Anwar jadi PM, lusa Amerika buka pangkalan udara di Butterworth’ and ‘Hari ini Anwar jadi PM, esok Israel buka kedutaan di KL’.
Anwar supporters who passed-by the area spotted the banners. They immediately stopped there and created a fracas with those who put-up the banners.
It was reported to the police and the response was – they sent a helicopter!! This was then joined with the hasty appearance of the media asking for more information. The police then instructed the opposing party to Anwar Ibrahim to remove the banners.
MAFREL condemns such malicious and slanderous campaign which distorts the truth and aims at assasinating the character of the candidate and calls upon the public to report to us immediately if such incidences happen again in the next few days.
