Syed Hamid, tembak saje kah. What type of Home Minister is this? It makes a mockery of the Office who would have Malaysia top intelligence including the police under his palm. And yet he can be mistaken, I wonder where he got his source of information from.
If at all the Minister is wrong, then he should resign for misrepresenting and giving false information to members of the public.
War of words over ‘meeting’ (taken from the Star)
A WAR of words has erupted between Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar and DAP leaders over whether the party’s top leaders had attended a meeting with Pakatan Rakyat leaders on July 9 to discuss a demonstration allegedly planned for Monday.
Syed Hamid insisted in the Dewan yesterday that the authorities had information that DAP secretary-general and Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng was at the meeting.
“I will retract what has been said of Yang Berhormat if the information is found to be untrue. The details of that information are not with me but I can tell you more at other forums,” he said.
Lim had earlier denied that he attended the meeting, claiming that he was with Penang Yang di-Pertua Negri Tun Abdul Rahman Abbas on that day.
“I was in Penang and there was no meeting at the Parti Keadilan Rakyat headquarters,” he added.
At a press conference in the Parliament lobby later, Lim reiterated that he had an alibi to prove that he was carrying out his duties as the Penang Chief Minister on that day.
“On the 9th of July, I was with the TYT of Penang to discuss preparations for the Penang Governor’s birthday and in the evening, we had a charity birthday dinner held in his honour.
