Jamal: Rafizi gave me evidence on IS link to Bersih

jamal2KUALA LUMPUR: Red Shirts movement leader Jamal Yunos today handed in evidence to the police at Bukit Aman purportedly linking terror group Islamic State with Bersih 2.0.

Accompanied by a convoy of 50 motorcyclists, the Sungai Besar Umno division chief claimed that the proof was handed to him by PKR Vice-President Rafizi Ramli.

Rafizi has since denied the claim.

“Everything is in these documents which I will now present to the police.

“According to trusted sources, they have been infiltrated by IS,” he told reporters.

Some of the evidence, Jamal claimed, was obtained from Rafizi around a month ago.

He, however, refused to show reporters examples of proof, or to divulge the nature of the links between the two groups.

“If I were to show you anything, I might as well open up the documents here,” he said, cradling the stack of some 22 pages of documents.

Jamal had last week, when launching a campaign against Bersih 2.0, alleged that the electoral reform group was infiltrated by IS.

He also claimed that Bersih 2.0 had planned to “take over” several strategic locations (during the Bersih 5 rally on Nov 19), such as airports, like what happened during protests in Thailand.

When questioned on whether Bersih 2.0 had been manipulated into furthering IS’ objectives or were working directly with the terrorist group, Jamal refused to answer.

Earlier, a convoy of motorcyclists gathered outside the gates of the police headquarters to show support for Jamal.
