PETALING JAYA: PKR members appear to be in self-destruct mode following the latest sex video scandal, with some coming out to defend Rafizi Ramli from being entangled in the plot.
Party Youth vice-chief Syed Badli Shah Syed Osman slammed Sabah PKR Youth deputy chief Blisson Zainuddin’s statement that hinted that Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz was closely associated to Rafizi's camp.
Syed Badli lambasted Blisson for bringing Rafizi into the sex video scandal implicating PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali.
Rafizi and Azmin had previously been at loggerheads when they vied for the party deputy presidency last year.
Syed Badli said the statement was done to divide the party even further.
“The statement made in the press conference was done with malicious intentions and was deliberately done to disturb the peace within PKR,” he said in a press statement Friday (June 14).
Syed Badli said he was “very suspicious” of Blisson’s actions as he claimed that the latter had sent WhatsApp messages to him on June 12 that were not supportive of Azmin.
Some of Blisson’s messages, he claimed, included “That day I was with Haziq”, “He (Haziq) really wants to give it to Azmin”, “Azmin is finished” and “This time” (Ni kali laa).
He had attached screenshots of the conversation with his press statement.
“I am not clear what Blisson’s intentions were in striking up such conversations over WhatsApp as I had no interest in entertaining gutter politics and slander.
“However, questions must be raised over what are his intentions as two days ago he was not supporting Azmin and now he is coming forward to make accusations linking other individuals to the case,” he said.
Syed Badli further condemned such gutter politics as “strategies that are played by parties who have run out of ideas”.
“I urge all parties to stop pointing fingers at each other and unite to overcome this trial. Remain calm and leave it to the authorities to carry out their investigations,” he said.
