Anwar Ibrahim - Horses’ Mouths – 10 February 2015

Harakahdaily - TS | .

Anwar Ibrahim

We can criticise Anwar and we can praise him but we can never deny that he is a brave man. Imagine someone who is almost 70 and was invited to go abroad and settle in a country with four seasos, but chooses to remain here and face the prospect of imprisonment. I respect you Anwar, I am not sure I would have done the same.

Mohamad Sabu, PAS deputy president, praising PKR de facto leader for his courage in facing the trial which will come to an end today, seven years after the sodomy complaint was made


I don't feel so bad about leaving Kit Siang behind, but leaving Azizah is very difficult.

Anwar Ibrahim, PKR de facto leader


I think there is merit in the suggestion that the older leaders like (PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang), Anwar, and myself begin to withdraw from the frontlines and make way for the post-Merdeka generation.

Lim Kit Siang, DAP advisor


Sirul’s mum

She is very sad, we are asking for a commitment from (the Australian High Commission) to facilitate the taking of Sirul’s mother to meet him.

Mahfuz Omar, PAS information chief, wanting to take the mother of former police commando Sirul Azhar Umar to Australia, where the latter is being detained


Extradition for Sirul?

There is no such procedure to begin with against Sirul unless pursuant to formal extradition request or an immigration offence. There is neither.

Kamarul Hisham Kamaruddin, Sirul Azhar Umar’s lawyer, on why his client has yet to be produced in a magistrate's court in Australia after almost three weeks since he was arrested in Australia by the country's Immigration and Border Control Department


Islamic state vs Chinese

Let us be clear, I am not naive to link Islamic State (IS) with the price of items and the issue regarding Ismail Sabri. I have been and am very consistent in condemning both acts of terrorism and racism.

Hishamuddin Hussein, Defence Minister, defending his comparison of the Islamic State’s (IS) terror attacks to Ismail Sabri’s jibe against Chinese traders, insisting that his remarks did not mean he condones racism


Pakatan Rakyat and BN

In Pakatan Rakyat, there is disunity as they fight among each other, while in BN, there is also no political will to even reprimand a minister for attacking Chinese businesses.

Wan Saiful Wan Jan, Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (Ideas) chief executive officer
