Saya rela digari daripada biar anak Selangor mabuk arak, kata Jamal
SHAH ALAM Datuk Seri Jamal Yunos hari ini berkata beliau rela digari dan dipenjarakan demi memastikan anak muda Selangor tidak terjebak dengan aktiviti meminum arak.
Ketua Umno Sungai Besar itu yang dibawa ke Mahkamah Majistret di sini selepas ditahan polis malam tadi, berkata beliau tidak rela melihat rakyat Selangor “mabuk” dengan menyertai pesta arak.
“Walaupun saya digari, ditangkap tapi saya tidak rela melihat anak-anak di Selangor menjadi mabuk di bawah pimpinan (Datuk Seri) Azmin Ali, ini mesej yang saya ingin sampaikan,” kata Jamal di perkarangan mahkamah diiringi pihak polis.

PETALING JAYA: Selangor Umno has sought to distance itself from Red Shirts leader Jamal Yunos, who caused a stir yesterday by smashing up cartons of beer in front of the Selangor state government office in protest of a beer festival.
Jamal, whose stunts often place him in the limelight, is Sungai Besar Umno division chief.
However, the New Straits Times quoted Selangor Umno information chief Zein Isma Ismail as saying that Jamal had acted in his capacity as chairman of the Malaysian NGOs Coalition.
“Jamal did not do it in the name of Selangor Umno, but under the capacity of the NGOs Coalition.
“It so happens that he is a member of the Selangor Umno liaison committee,” Zein said in the report.

Jamal’s antics will cost BN votes, MCA leader warns
The latest stunt by Sungai Besar Umno chief Jamal Md Yunos will only cost BN votes in the upcoming general election, said MCA’s Ti Lian Ker today.
“Jamal’s imbecilic stunts of hammering cartons of Tiger beer bottles at the gate entrance of the Selangor state secretariat office may get him the attention he craves, but his once-again-gangster outburst will not augur well with voters,” the MCA publicity spokesperson said in a statement today.
Pointing to the Sungai Besar by-election last year, he said more than 42 percent of the Chinese voting population there voted for BN.
“However, all these accomplishments can turn to nought overnight if Jamal persists with his aggressive behaviour and churlish stunts, which are insensitive and provocative to not only non-Muslims, but Muslims alike.
“This will then, in turn, be converted to silent protest in the ballot box. Jamal will cost BN votes due to his insensitivity and failure to respect others.
“If he thinks that his violence will pander or earn him praises from voters, he is sadly and badly mistaken,” said Ti.
Describing Jamal’s actions this time as “among the dumbest”, he said it must be condemned and chastised by BN leaders so that it can be disassociated from BN.
Cops investigate Jamal for beer-smashing stunt
Shah Alam police are investigating Sungai Besar Umno chief Jamal Md Yunos for unlawful assembly over his beer-smashing stunt this morning outside the Selangor State Secretariat (SUK) building.
“Shah Alam police have confirmed that we have received a report (on the incident) and investigations are being carried out under Section 143 of the Penal Code,” said district police chief Shafien Mamat in a statement.
If found guilty, Jamal could face up to six months’ jail, or a fine, or both.
It was reported earlier that SUK enforcement chief Misnun Ramli would be filing a report against Jamal for failing to clean up the mess he made at the gates of the building in Shah Alam.

Jamal Yunos smashes crates of beer at SUK entrance, leaves others to clean up mess

SHAH ALAM: Malaysian NGOs Coalition chairman Datuk Seri Jamal Md Yunos today led a violent demonstration at the Selangor state secretariat building’s (SUK) front gate, in protest of the Better Beer Festival 2017, by smashing crates of beer with a sledgehammer – and leaving the mess for others to clean up.
Jamal, accompanied by more than 20 supporters, began his protest by carrying armloads of crates of beer to Gate 1, saying he wanted to deliver them to the Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Azmin Ali’s office.
However, he was stopped by security guards from entering the compound.
“Why am I not allowed to go in? I am not here to create a ruckus. I am here to send these bottles of beverages to Azmin’s office. I want to tell him not to encourage immoral and unbeneficial activities.
“If they want to get drunk, do it at the SUK. Do not get drunk outside of the SUK. So if Azmin wants to drink, get drunk, or wants to die, (he can) do it in his office,” he said.
Jamal’s protest then turned violent when he dropped a bottle of beer onto the pavement, which shattered and spilled its contents.
He then stacked the crates of beer at the gate, on which he had stuck Better Beer Festival logos, and proceeded to smash them repeatedly with a sledgehammer, leaving the building’s entrance littered with debris and spilled beer.
He then walked off and headed to his luxury MPV, leaving the scene without saying a word.
But SUK enforcement chief Misnun Ramli gave chase to Jamal’s car, asking that Jamal clean up the mess – but he was ignored.
“It is highly inappropriate to leave just like that. The mess is in the middle of road and we have a lot of visitors coming in and out.
“This is not the right way, even if he wants to protest. There are a lot of glass shards on the road, and even his supporters ignored me when I asked them to clear it. We will lodge a police report over this,” he said.
