Suaram: We’re being framed

 | September 10, 2012

The human organisation accuses the government of going on a deliberate witch-hunt due to Suaram's role in the French judicial probe.

PETALING JAYA: Suaram has accused the government of trying to frame the human rights organisation since it initiated the French judicial probe into the Scorpene submarine deal.

“This can only be seen as a political set-up to frame Suaram because of our complaint to the French court to investigate suspected corruption in the Scorpene deal,” said its executive director E Nalini.

She said this in response to media reports that quoted Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob stating that Suaram’s accounts were “highly suspicious” and would be prosecuted.

In the latest development, the ministry was also querying why Suaram received funds from international funds manager George Soros.

Suaram was being investigated by the Companies Commission of Malaysian and would face five charges, announced the minister.

Nalini also accused the government of diverting Suaram in its bid to expose two companies which were involved in the purchase of the Scorpene submarines – Perimekar Sdn Bhd and Terasasi Sdn Bhd.

“The Barisan Nasional government has embarked on this shameful frame-up to the extent of perverting the government agencies and civil servants for this purpose.

“It is clear that these desperate actions by the government are attempts to discredit Suaram and its selfless service to the rakyat and to stop Suaram from revealing further damning evidence relating to the Scorpene scandal.

“These are also a political diversion from the highly suspicious activities and accounts of Perimekar and Terasasi, two companies exposed through the investigations in Paris and which the CCM has still not investigated,” she said.
