Gerakan Rakyat Marhein (Geram) members display the police report made against Surendran
KUALA LUMPUR: A non-governmental organisation (NGO) has lodged a police report against Padang Serai member of parliament N. Surendran for allegedly undermining the Malaysian judiciary.
Gerakan Rakyat Marhein (Geram) hit out at an April 18 statement by Surendran which it claims undermined the Court of Appeal’s March 7 decision which found Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim guilty of sodomy.
“I see the actions of N. Surendran as seditious and inciting the people to question the credibility of the Malaysian court system,” said Geram president Norafiq Md Noor, 26, at the Setapak police station, Monday.
In his statement, Surendran called the Court of Appeal April 11 judgement not credible, insupportable in law and fundamentally flawed.
On April 9, Geram had also lodged a similar police report against Pandan MP Rafizi Ramli for a book he wrote which the NGO claimed undermined the judicial system.
Norafiq called for the police to investigate and take action against Surendran.
Surendran responded to the police report by calling it “sheer nonsense”, “a cheap publicity attempt” and “idiotic to say the least”.
