KLANG: Seven more police reports have been lodged over a statement by Selangor's Seri Muda assemblyman Shuhaimi Shafiei on his blog which allegedly insulted the Sultan of Selangor.
Three of the reports were made by Umno Youth, MCA and the MIC Kota Raja Division while the other four were made by non-governmental organisations, Persatuan Bugis Selangor, the Klang Branch of Pertubuhan Pribumi Perkasa Malaysia (Perkasa), Gabungan Anti-Penyelewengan Selangor (GAPS) and Pusat Komuniti Andalas.
Kota Raja Barisan Nasional Youth chief Nur Azman Anuarul Perai said the statement by Shuhaimi on his blog, http://srimuda.blogspot.com, portrayed Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah as having acted indiscriminately without regard for constitutional convention when consenting to the appointment of Datuk Mohd Khusrin Munawi as the new Selangor state secretary.
"I believe Shuhaimi made the statement with the intention to incite hatred in the people and give a negative perception of the institution of Malay Rulers, which can undermine national security and public order," he told reporters before lodging a police report at the Klang Selatan police headquarters, here.
Persatuan Bugis Selangor Chairman Raja Ahmad Raja Datuk Abdul Wahid said the Selangor government's questioning of Mohd Khusrin as the state secretary was tantamount to treason.
