Cops to quiz Jamal on ‘blood to be paid with blood’ comment


PETALING JAYA: Police will call up Red Shirts movement leader Jamal Yunos for questioning over his “Darah dibalas Darah” statement,.

Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar told Star Online Jamal’s statement could be deemed as seditious.

“We will investigate the matter without fear or favour. He will be called up for questioning.”

On Sunday, Jamal was punched in the face during a scuffle between police and the Red Shirts at Ampang Point.

This happened when police tried to keep the Red Shirts away from Bersih supporters in yellow T-shirts canvassing support for their rally this Saturday.

Jamal was alleged to have stated in a Facebook post later that “Darah pasti diganti dengan darah” (“Blood will be paid with blood”).

The posting also showed a news article showing Jamal with a bloodied nose.
