Red shirts Jamal laments cops gave Bersih ‘special treatment’
Sungai Besar Umno division chief Jamal Md Yunos has lamented the police treated Bersih participants at their nationwide convoy yesterday far better than they treated the opposing red shirts.
“I believe yesterday’s events saw the police giving special treatment that is extraordinary to Bersih 5.
“On the other hand, the treatment given to the red shirts movement, I would liken to that of anjing kurap (sick dogs),” the grassroots Umno leader said in a statement today.

Polis layan kami macam anjing kurap, kata Jamal
PETALING JAYA: Datuk Jamal Md Yunos mendakwa polis berat sebelah dengan memberi layanan istimewa kepada konvoi Bersih 5, manakala Gerakan Baju Merah pula disekat di setiap lokasi.
“Kumpulan Bersih 5 bukan sahaja dijaga rapi, malah pihak polis turut mengiringi di setiap konvoi Bersih 5 mengalahkan escort perdana menteri.
“Sebaliknya, layanan yang diberikan kepada Gerakan Merah V2 saya sifatkan seperti anjing kurap.
Pihak polis menyekat di setiap lokasi kami,” katanya dalam satu kenyataan hari ini.
Bersih slams thuggery, says Jamal’s crossed the line
Electoral reform coalition Bersih has blasted Sungai Besar Umno division chief Jamal Md Yunos for the red shirts protestors attack on a yellow-clad participant yesterday in Sabak Bernam.
“They could have killed him. Jamal Yunos has crossed the line and such actions tantamount to thuggery and it is criminal and violence of the worst degree,” said Bersih in a statement this morning.
The group condemned the incidents of violence seen in yesterday’s confrontations between Bersih participants on their nationwide convoy, and the pro-government red shirts led by Jamal.
“In particular, a Bersih supporter was physically beaten up by these group of thugs.
“The gangsters egged him, pulled him off his bike, kicked and punched him with such force that it injured him badly,” said the coalition.

Jamal: Next time I will vault my car on top of theirs
Red shirts leader Jamal Md Yunos has said that there will be a more aggressive response to the next Bersih convoy.
Asked about the blockade he set up at the Teluk Intan-Bidor road earlier today, Jamal said it was a coincidence as the reds and Bersih crossed paths.
“If I was driving I don’t know what would have happened. Good thing my friend was driving,” he said.
The Bersih convoy from Teluk Intan to Sabak Bernam was waylaid by the red shirts earlier today.
However the situation was quickly contained by the police, who stopped all the red shirts’ vehicles to let Bersih and other motorists pass.
Asked on what he’ll do next time, Jamal, who is also Sungai Besar Umno chief, said: “Next time I’ll vault my car on top of theirs.”
He added that the red shirts would be on stand-by to “chase away” Bersih.
