No, Muhyiddin wasn’t there…

NGO leaders arrested over anti-Muhyiddin protest
KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 16 ― More than 10 members of a coalition of NGOs led by Jaringan Melayu Malaysia (JMM) were arrested today after they organised a protest against former deputy prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin at the court complex here.
The protesters, numbering at just over 20, were protesting against Muhyiddin for not turning up at a Nothing to Hide 2.0 forum organised by JMM recently.
However, after they made their way into the court lobby, police arrested them under the Peaceful Assembly Act (PAA) 2012.
“All those arrested will be brought to Sentul police station for further action,” Sentul district police chief ACP R Munusamy told reporters after arriving at the scene.
Munusamy said that the police tried to get the protesters to disperse calmly, but were forced to detain them as they were being disruptive.
“They were affecting the proceedings of the court,” he said.

JMM protesters call Muhyiddin ‘traitor’ outside court
Some 25 protesters from Jaringan Melayu Malaysia (JMM) gathered within the compound of Kuala Lumpur Court Complex in Jalan Duta today calling former deputy prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin a traitor.
Initially they gathered outside the court complex but all of a sudden they were allowed in by the security.
Armed with loud hailers, the protesters shouted Muhyiddin “petualang” (traitor).
They have gathered here for a divorce proceeding involving lawyer and former senior DPP Stanley Augustine and Nika Gee.
Mohd Ali Baharom, better known as Ali Tinju, is among the protesters.
Group protests against Muhyiddin outside courthouse
The group of about 20 people, led by Ali Tinju, wants the former DPM to ‘debate’ them on his alleged affair with a businesswoman.
KUALA LUMPUR: About 20 protesters from Jaringan Melayu Malaysia (JMM) gathered in front of the Jalan Duta Court Complex here to challenge former deputy prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin to a debate.
They want him to debate them on his alleged affair with a businesswoman. Muhyiddin has denied any such affair.
The group, led by JMM secretary-general Hamdan Mohd Salleh and controversial Umno figure Ali Tinju, gathered as early as 8am outside the gates of the court complex, where the divorce proceedings of former public prosecutor Stanley Clement Augustin and his estranged wife Nika Gee Siew Yee, was set to take place.
Former Umno deputy president Muhyiddin has been dragged into the case by a blogger.
In his divorce filing last year, Augustin had alleged that Gee was involved in an affair with a political figure – out of which, he claimed, she had gained financially and other material benefits.
Blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin later named Muhyiddin as the politician – an allegation the latter has vehemently denied, calling it slanderous and unfounded.
