Political read: Dr Mahathir launching the book ‘The Politics of Bangsa Malaysia’ in Kuala Lumpur. Looking on is the author of the book Dr Mohamed Mustafa.
KUALA LUMPUR: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad wants to refer to old records to verify claims that he was in the country during the November 1985 Memali tragedy.
“I am studying if there is any truth to (Tun Musa Hitam’s) claim. It happened a long time ago. I must check first,” said the former prime minister.
A news portal reported Musa as saying that Dr Mahathir was still in the country for several days after the incident, contrary to reports that said he was in China, causing Musa, who was acting prime minister then, to be “blamed” for the clash between Ibrahim’s followers and the police.
Speaking to reporters yesterday after launching the book The Politics of Bangsa Malaysia yesterday, Dr Mahathir said he would check to see if there was any truth to Musa’s claims.
The book was written by UUM vice chancellor Prof Datuk Wira Dr Mohamed Mustafa Ishak.
