Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah
KAJANG: Subang PKR chief R Sivarasa confirmed that MH370 flight captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was a life member of the party.
“He was a PKR member since Jan 23 last year and campaigned for us during the general election but this is irrelevant to the case,” said Sivarasa told a press conference here Sunday.

The tabloid also claimed that Zaharie attended the sodomy trial of Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim on Friday, hours before the flight took off from KLIA at 12.40am on Saturday.
Sivarasa said that the notions were incorrect as the report did not substantiate its allegations with any facts.
“Even though I was not entirely there (at the trial), I can say that he was not there. If he was, I would have been notified,” he said.

He also quashed allegation by the tabloid that said Zaharie was a political activist.
“This is not correct at all, he is just an ordinary party member, just like millions of other people. It’s not fair to say that he is a political fanatic,” said Sivarasa.
