KUALA LUMPUR – November 17, 2016: PKR Wanita chief Zuraida Kamaruddin will sue a party member for allegedly writing a defamatory Facebook post regarding her alleged corrupt practices.
Responding to a query from The Mole, Zuraida issued a warning to one Syafiq Abdullah, who is the alleged writer of the post, that he should be prepare to be sued.
“I do not know who this Syafiq is but my stand is simple,” Zuraida wrote in her text message. “One must first lodge a report (to the PKR disciplinary committee) and allow the authorities to investigate, instead of making baseless allegations.”
Syafiq’s post which has gone viral since last night called on PKR president Datuk Seri Dr. Wan Azizah Wan Ismail to sack Zuraida and PKR secretary-general Rafizi Ramli, who were said to have caused PKR’s latest internal strife.
In the post, Zuraida was accused of extorting money from housing contractors and property developers in Ampang whereas Rafizi was alleged to be the insider who had leaked information on the wealth of a Zuraida aide.
Zuraida’s 28-years-old aide, Datuk Adam Rosly, has generated controversy after Red Shirts movement leader Datuk Seri Jamal Yunos exposed his unusual wealth earlier this week.
“Dear Kak Wan (Wan Azizah), do you know who caused these series of backstabbings? Look no further…. they are your beloved Pandan (Rafizi) and Ampang (Zuraida) MPs (members of parliament).
“He (Rafizi) was the one who, acting through several middlemen, had relayed the information to Jamal,” Syafiq wrote.
Syafiq also allegedly claimed that Rafizi had decided to double-cross Zuraida because she did not keep her promise to help him pay the RM200,000 compensation money to National Feedlot Corporation and its chairman Datuk Seri Mohamad Salleh after he was found guilty of defamation.
“Kak Wan, you cannot keep mum over these shenanigans. There is no use for us ordinary members to fight Barisan Nasional if our leaders are at each other’s throats,” Syafiq further wrote.
The post also said a report on the alleged wrongdoings of Zuraida and Rafizi has been lodged with the party’s disciplinary committee.
