Mat Sabu : Apologise or I will sue

The PAS deputy president says he will file a suit against the police for saying that he lied that a police vehicle rammed into him. The police say he fell when his motocycle hit a divider.

KUALA LUMPUR: PAS deputy president Mohamad Sabu has demanded an apology from the police for claiming that he lied about being hit by a police vehicle during the July 9 Bersih 2.0 rally.
“If they continue with this lie, I will not hesitate to take legal action. I have spoken to my lawyer and he has advised me to do so,” he said.

Mohamad said he wanted the police to retract and apologise their false accusation against him.
“Otherwise, I will see those who lie and perhaps any other individuals who repeat that lie, in court,” he said.

Mohamad said that a police report he lodged earlier this week at the Dang Wangi district police headquarters was the true account of what happened.

On Thursday, Public Order and Internal Security Department director Salleh Rashid screened a CCTV recording which claimed to disprove the PAS leader’s earlier accusation that police had rammed a vehicle into a motorcycle he was on.

The video allegedly showed Mohamad falling off his motorcycle after hitting a divider.
The PAS leader, now wheelchair bound, had previously alleged that a police vehicle had deliberately knocked into his motorcycle, causing him to hurt his knee.

The incident caused a torn ligament on his right knee, resulting in an operation where doctors needed to insert a screw.
