SHAH ALAM: PAS and Umno Youth have expressed satisfaction with the verdict which found that fireman Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim was beaten up.

Deputy PAS Youth chief Ahmad Fadhli Shaari said the decision was a "relief" for the rakyat and had restored confidence in the judiciary.

"This will facilitate the process to bring justice for Adib," he told reporters outside the Shah Alam court complex on Friday (Sept 27).

He called for those who were guilty of beating up Muhammad Adib to be brought to justice.

He also urged Attorney-General Tan Sri Tommy Thomas to step down, or at the very least, take a leave of absence for allegedly interfering in the case.

Umno Youth exco member Muhammad Faiz Hashim, in the same press conference, said this was not a racial matter but a humanitarian matter.

"This case is about the issue of justice and humanitarianism," he said.

A group of Malay interests advocates were also at the site, calling for those guilty to be arrested and urging Housing and Local Government minister Zuraida Kamaruddin to step down with cries of "Tangkap Pembunuh" and "Undur Zuraida".

Also spotted was Umno Supreme Council member Datuk Seri Lokman Noor Adam.
