Don't play favourites with Farhash, says PKR central committee member


PETALING JAYA: Disciplinary action should be taken against Perak PKR chief Farhash Wafa Salvador Rizal Mubarak for allegedly breaking the law, says PKR central committee member Datuk Zakaria Abdul Hamid.

"It is as if there is some kind of immunity for certain parties to act like gangsters repeatedly but continue to be protected.

"This is not the first time Farhash, who is also the Perak PKR chief, was alleged to have been involved in illegal activities. Such arrogance in disrespecting the laws must be stopped immediately as it tarnishes the good name of the party and the president.

"The disciplinary committee should investigate this quickly without any favouritism and stern action must be taken to uphold the dignity of the party and ensure that all party members portray a noble character.

"If this situation is not contained, I fear that this will become common behaviour and infiltrate to other levels," said Zakaria in a statement on Wednesday (Sept 4).

Zakaria is also the Bera PKR division chief.

Farhash was confirmed as wanted by police to aid in investigations into a brawl at a sports complex in Ampang, Kuala Lumpur on Merdeka (Aug 31) night.

Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Fadzil Ahmat said the brawl started when a man pushed another man at the venue.

However, both men met again at the venue's motorcycle parking lot and were later joined by 10 others.

There, the victim was attacked with helmets, knives and chairs.

SAC Fadzil said the victim suffered injuries to his waist and genitals.

He said the case is investigated under Section 148 of the Penal Code for possessing weapons or missiles at a riot.

Farhash had issued a statement on Tuesday (Sept 3) that he will cooperate fully with the police.

On May 16, Farhash was also investigated by the police where he allegedly assaulted and threatened a freelance researcher in Bukit Gasing.

The victim alleged that Farhash scolded, pushed and choked him.

On June 19, the police said the investigation papers would be forwarded to the deputy public prosecutor for the next course of action.
