Report lodged against DAP and news portal for alleged Soros connection

KUALA LUMPUR: Former Royal Malaysian Air Force officer Captain Abdul Rahmat Omar Tun Mohd Haniff (pic) has lodged a police report against Malaysiakini co-founder Premesh Chandran and DAP's so-called "Red Bean Army" for using foreign funds to work against the Government.

Abdul Rahmat, who is now a safety consultant, said he was browsing the Internet and came across a DC Leaks article alleging that billionaire George Soros' Open Society Foundations (OSF) had been channelling funds to local organisations.

"The content of the document is serious and I am of the opinion that foreigners should not be involved in the democratic process of the country," Abdul Rahmat told reporters outside Jalan Tun Razak police station on Thursday.

"The affairs of our country should be left to our own people, whichever side of the political divide you're on," he said.

If there were any changes to be made to the country, Abdul Rahmat said that it should be made via democratic means.

"There are some people that would like to force change through undemocratic processes and that's not right.

He said he wants the police to investigate the authenticity the DC Leak document and to see if there is any weight to the claims made.

He said that this is his first time lodging a police report as a "concerned citizen" without affiliation to anyone.

Abdul Rahmat said that he is aware of the previous police reports lodged against the DC Leaks document, but wanted to lodge his own report to "urge the police to speed up the investigation".

"We can't delay things like this. It is not fair to anyone," he said.

In his police report, Abdul Rahmat also included former DAP vice-chairman Tunku Abdul Aziz's claim that the Red Bean Army, a propaganda cyber vehicle for DAP, received foreign funding.

"I put two and two together. What Tunku Aziz said strengthens my belief over what is going on," he said.
