Granduncle questions Yusoff's sexual harassment claim just days before PKR congress


1

PETALING JAYA: The granduncle of Muhammed Yusoff Rawther found it strange that his sexual harassment allegation against a high-profile politician surfaced a couple of days before the PKR Congress.

Mohideen Abdul Kader believed Yusoff was being manipulated by certain politicians to serve their interest.

"The purported incident allegedly took place on Oct 2 last year.

"Yet, none of our family members, including his grandfather (the late Consumer Association of Penang president S.M. Mohamed Idris), who was very close to him, was told about this alleged incident," said Mohideen.

On the Statutory Declaration purportedly written by Yusoff, he said,"I thought we have left behind the politics of sodomy with the arrival of Malaysia Baru.

"But, sadly, it keeps cropping up again and again. I am confident that Malaysians will reject such gutter politics," said Mohideen, who is the current CAP president.

Yusoff told a press conference earlier that he had described in the SD the details of the incident that transpired at the high-profile politician's residence.

Mohideen said the family was only aware of the police report lodged against the politician's aide for allegedly assaulting Yusoff.

"A civil suit was filed against the aide. But there was no mention then about the alleged incident (sexual assault)," he said in a statement.

Mohideen also said Yusoff had distanced himself from the family after the passing of his grandfather early this year.
