Perak exco member denies graft accusations, claims 'mastermind' behind attacks


IPOH: Perak executive council member Abdul Yunus Jamhari believes that the person who lodged a police report against him on Saturday (July 13) was directed by a "mastermind" to destroy his political career.

The state Public Amenities, Infrastructure, Agriculture and Plantation Committee chairman said there had been many attempts to discredit him since the party elections last year.

"It is because of my support for party deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali," he said.

In a statement on Saturday, Abdul Yunus also claimed there were also attempts to get him dropped as a state exco member and to sabotage the Perak Mentri Besar's leadership as the state exco swearing-in ceremony was approaching.

"I believe Parit Buntar PKR committee member Beh Yong Kean, who lodged the report, is being used.

"I strongly deny the malicious allegations made against me," he added.

It was earlier reported that Beh had accused Abdul Yunus of soliciting kickbacks over a land matter.

Abdul Yunus said he would lodge a report at the Bagan Serai police station on Sunday at 10am.

"I will lodge a report on the allegations and the fake police report made against me," he added.
