Still no action against Azhar “Tembak” Ibrahim

Friday, 12 September 2008

Despite police report being lodged against Penang Umno secretary Datuk Azhar “Tembak” Ibrahim. The police has yet to take any action against him for criminal intimidation.Datuk Azhar had on 5 September at Menara Umno told a crowded press conference that the Sin Chew Daily’s reporter who wrote on Datuk Ahmad “Gantung” Ismail’s racist outburst should be shot.

We view Datuk Azhar’s threat on a particular person’s life as serious and urge the police to quickly investigate and charge Datuk Azhar for attempted murder.We also urge the police to ensure the safety and well-being of the Sin Chew Daily’s reporter and take immediate action should any Umno member or supporter try to harm or endanger her life.
