Media Statement by Ngeh Koo Ham in Ipoh on Wednesday, 12th August 2009:
Zambry should apologise for falsehoods hurled at Pakatan Rakyat elected representatives
On 7/8/2009, Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir accused me, YB Nga Kor Ming (MP for Taiping and PR Perak State Government Exco member) and YAB Datuk Seri Mohd Nizar Bin Jamaluddin (PR Perak State Government Menteri Besar ) of spreading lies and accusing the BN State Government of approving 14,000 hectares of land to Rahman Hydraulic Tin Bhd for tin prospecting. I would like to point out that the same was announced by Dato’ Hamidah Osman, Zambry’s State Government Senior Exco member in April this year. Zambery should clarify whether he is lying or Hamidah Osman is lying and both of them have a duty to the public to clarify the actual situation with regard to the approval of the said 14,000 hec of land.
On Sunday Zambry condemned MP for Rasah, YB Anthony Loke for writing disparaging remarks against the Regent of Perak. YB Anthony Loke had lodged a police report denying that he wrote the disparaging remarks. It was probably the work of UMNO member or its supporter.
It clearly shows how a Menteri Besar who is not elected by the popular vote of the people trying to survive i.e. by thriving on falsehoods.
Zambry must apologise to the persons concern for wrong accusations and the public for misleading them with regard to the above said wrongful accusations. It looks that there is a agenda by BN/UMNO to create falsehoods and accuse others of the falsehoods.
