PKR: Sex video blogger a ‘phantom voter’

 | March 22, 2013

PKR's Rafizi Ramli also alleged that the pro-Umno blogger was a former traffic policeman convicted on a bribery charge last year.

FULL REPORT

PETALING JAYA: Pro-Umno blogger Papagomo is a phantom voter, alleged PKR strategy director Rafizi Ramli.

Speaking at a press conference held at the party headquarters, Rafizi also claimed that Papagomo, whose real name is Wan Muhammad Azri Wan Deris, was a former traffic policeman who was convicted of corruption last year.

“Using his former police identification number RF142863, we traced that Papagomo is registered as a postal voter at the Ampang district police headquarters.

“But when we checked using his MyKad number, he is also registered as a normal voter for the Wangsa Maju parliamentary constituency,” alleged Rafizi.

Papagomo is one of the chief critics of Pakatan Rakyat and had recently published several photos on his website purportedly showing Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim engaging in a lewd act with another man.

Anwar had since filed a RM100 million civil suit against the blogger for defamation.

Rafizi said today Papagomo’s status proved the existence of phantom voters in the electoral roll and the Elections Commission (EC) must explain the matter.

“The EC must also explain how many other Umno operatives are registered twice in the electoral roll. This may affect the electoral body’s integrity,” he said.

On Papagomo, Rafizi urged Malaysians to reject such characters who resort to slander to attack others.

“Not only is he convicted for bribery, the blogger is also famous for spreading lies and slandering others.

“Malaysians should reject Umno for such dubious characters instead of engaging us on policy issues,” he said.

Video ‘speculative’

According to a document which Rafizi showed reporters, an individual by the name of Wan Muhammad Azri Wan Deris had been charged with two counts of bribery at the Sessions Court.

The sentencing was upheld by the High Court on Sept 6, 2012.

He was sentenced to a RM10,000 fine and 14 days’ jail term for the first count, and another RM10,000 fine and eight months’ jail term on the second charge.

On how he knew that both electoral registrations are of the same person, Rafizi said he checked the details using several correspondence documents and  investigations made by his team.

“I also have other documents to prove my allegations. Let’s see what Papagomo says first,” said Rafizi.

On queries that Anwar was also charged with corruption before, the PKR leader said,”The opposition leader went through the court process and was found innocent.

“Those against him then had also admitted that Anwar was innocent like Saiful Bukhari Azlan’s father, Azlan Mohd Lazim.

“[But) the ultimate judge is the public. Never underestimate the people’s wisdom.”

Questioned on the latest video on Anwar posted on Papagomo’s website, Rafizi said the video was “merely speculative and malicious”.

“I watched the video. It only makes insinuations. Those who know Anwar know that he talks to a lot of people and is warm to everyone,” he said.

Papagomo assaulted

In another development, pro-Umno bloggers this evening claiming that Papagomo was assaulted by two unknown men in Segambut this afternoon.

According to a blogger known as Tok Guru 86, the two men had approached Papagomo on a high powered motorcycle, and one of them had hit Papagomo from the back, injuring the blogger’s head.

He has since obtained treatment in Kuala Lumpur Hospital. The pro-Umno blogs have also carried photos of Papagomo’s injured head.

Though the identity of assailants is unknown, the bloggers have begun to point fingers at Anwar for the incident.
