“I am not apologetic because I didn’t do anything wrong,” Ahmad Ismail, the Umno division leader from Penang told Malaysiakini via telephone today.
“I have never been racist and will never be. It is rubbish to suggest that I am a racist,” blasted Ahmad, who sounded calm and in good spirit despite the storm swirling around him, according to Malaysiakini reporter.
SO, what will the police do with this guy? And do we really want his apology? I don’t!
Earlier I blogged in this post entitled: ‘Racist’ Ahmad joins the list of Malaysia’s disappeared. He later turned up to record his statement.
First it was P Balasubramaniam who claimed in a statutory declaration that Najib Tun Razak was involved with the Altantuya Shariibuu murder case, and that he had sex with the woman, including anal sex.
Bala disappeared after he claimed otherwise. He has been cited in Bangkok. And for all we know, in other ASEAN countries as well.
Then it was PKR’s Zulkifli Noordin who disappeared for awhile after storming into a freedom of religious conference organised by the Bar Council. PKR has yet to take action against Zulkifli.
(Addition at 2.13pm Bkk time) How about the Burmese-Muslim doctor from Pusrawi Hospital who also made a SD that confirms Anwar Ibrahim did not sodomise Saiful Bukhairy Azlan? He, too, went missing, when his report was leaked to the nation.
He has now “resurfaced to set the record straight“. He stands by his statement that he found no evidence of sodomy in his examination.
Only yesterday, I heard it’s S Nallakurappan, after he made boisterous and comical remarks of Anwar Ibrahim in the Permatang Pauh by-election in August, claiming, among others, that Anwar played ‘hanky-panky’ after he played tennis with Nalla. Nalla also accused Anwar of taking RM60 mil from him.
And now, it’s Ahamd Ismail who called Malaysian Chinese ‘immigrants’ in his campaign speech at Permatang Pauh and made Najib apologise on his behalf. Everyone’s questioning why is Najib doing the apologising, shouldn’t it be Ahmad himself?
What has happened to this racist? Did he do an ‘immigrant’ and leave the country instead?
According to the STAR, who did some investigate work by going to his house, he is “nowhere to be found”, as police are investigating five police reports lodge against him in George Town, Bukit Mertajam, Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya.
He is currently being investigated under the Sedition Act for labelling Chinese as “immigrants” who do not deserve equal rights in the country.
He was supposed to turn up in BM district police HQ yesterday, but did not. Everyone else has given their statement.
Even Ahmad’s personal assistant and state Umno leaders are having difficulty trying to reach him.
A visit by The Star to his house in Taman Robina in Butterworth showed that his luxury bungalow, complete with a swimming pool, had been torn down. Letters were left uncollected in the letterbox.
It is learnt that Ahmad and his family are now staying at a penthouse in a guarded condominium in Tanjong Tokong, pending the construction of his new bungalow.
Bukit Mertajam Umno division chief Datuk Musa Sheikh Fadzir said several state Umno leaders had attempted to contact Ahmad to find out what actually transpired.
“We want to know the truth as we believe his remark was taken out of context. It is best that we hear his side of the story,” said Musa.
Oh, dear…isn’t it dangerous to be in politics these days?
